Hi /trv/, my mom's going to be going back to visit Spain, and I'd like to get a SIM card for a Spanish mobile provider before she leaves.

She currently doesn't even have a cellphone, and barely knows how to use technology. I know she could just buy one in Spain very easily, but I don't want to have her try and buy one and install it by herself. So I'd like to buy a SIM card online, get her a phone and have her all set before she leaves the country.

While on the subject, which carrier would be best in Spain anyway?

I apologize if this is more /g/ than /trv/, but I figured travelers deal with this more frequently than gentoomen.

Bumping for interest. I would like to ask the same but in reverse. If I go to the states, what do I need to do to keep cellphone/internet acces? And is this different for every state?

Carrefour Móvil:

http://www.carrefour.es/telecom/internet-movil/index.html

SIM: 10€ in any Carrefour supermarket (including Carrefour Express), includes 5€ of credit. You want the data SIM, not the voice SIM. They sell them in the checkout line.

DATA TARIFFS:
1€/day unlimited data, billed per-day. If you only connect during one day (0h-2359h) you only pay 1€. Thus that SIM will keep you going for five days without a recharge. You get full HSPA data up to 100MB/day, then it drops to 128Mb/s.

1GB Pack - 19€, good for a 30-day period, unlimited data. Once you pass 1GB, speed is reduced to 128Mb/s. You can either re-up for another 1GB or switch to the 1€/day after that.

Vodafone:

http://vodafone.es

SIM: 18€ in any Vodafone shop, includes 18€ of credit. There is a Vodafone shop every couple of blocks in the cities, and every small town has at least one.

DATA TARIFFS:
0,50€/day unlimited data - no P2P, no VOIP, consistent high volume gets you booted to their GPRS network at lower speed

3€/week unlimited data - same as above

IPAD SIM:
15€ includes 15€ of credit. VOIP works.

IPAD TARIFFS:
15€/month - 200MB, then speed drops to GPRS
32€/month - 2GB, then speed drops to GPRS

All Vodafone SIMs can be recharged in ATMs that have the "4b" logo.

Another option is Happy Móvil:

http://www.happymovil.es

SIM: 10€, available in any Phone House shop, also most other independent mobile shops.

DATA TARIFF:
0,09€/MB - EDGE speeds, billed in MB increments.

All Happy Móvil SIMs can be recharged in "la Caixa" ATMs. This may be an interesting option because they have extremely cheap international calls - around 0,06€/minute to much of the world - and calls between Happy Móvil numbers are always free.
