Not of interest to me (I'm happy with my 2 Gb and 100 minutes from Yoigo, €11 a month), but it might be the sort of thing you are after.

Not that I know of. It's also "sin permanencia" - you can leave when you want with no penalty.

No credit checks. But you will need a Spanish bank account for direct debit.

We just switched our phones to Republica Movil. It's fully owned by Orange so it uses the Orange network. 3Gb of data and 150 minutes in calls for 6€. No "permanencia" so if we don't like it we can leave. It gets great reviews for its app and also for its customer service, which is what the deciding factor was for us. Hopefully we'll never need the customer service but it's nice to know that if we need to use it we'll be able to talk to a real person who is efficient and effective at getting things sorted.

Looks good, though the Orange network isn't as reliable as the Movistar one where I live (lots of mountains). But very good value and I like the fact that it's collaborative, i.e. run by its users. Inspired by Giffgaff in the UK it seems.

Update on Lobster.Had the card for a month now no restrictions on phone calls or texts.Make as many calls or texts as you want.Even phone calls to the USA are free so for 12€ IVA included a month,well pleased plus if you don't like it you can cancel at any time.Looked at cheaper alternatives and they can't compare with Lobster.I mean,free phone calls to the USA which I have done a few of as still in touch with record dealers over there and it's for a full month not 4weeks like some.Well chuffed with it.
