What cell phone provider in Spain?
 
I would like some input on what cell phone service provider you use in Spain. We will be moving to Barcelona in August. We have unlimited data plans in the US, but I am not sure if something like that is available in Barcelona.

Hola

I recently was offered and accepted an unlimited deal - unlimited calls, unlimited texts and unlimited data. Cost is 50€ a month with Vodafone

Unlimited data isn't the norm in Spain. But as mentioned, Vodafone has recently added an unlimited data plan. Also, texts are usually not included (nor even mentioned) because virtually nobody in Spain sends texts any more. What's used is whatsapp.

Here are a few comparison sites where you can get an idea of what is offered.

FYI, if you are planning on getting internet at home, a cell phone package is usually included.

Lobster do some good sim deals especially including phoning abroad. I think you can sign up online. Worth a look.

I think you will find that Lebara offers cheaper pay-as-you-go packages. I have been with Lebara for years and when I saw the ads for Lobster I checked them out. Needless to say I am still with Lebara!

Fear not, technology will solve all your problems! You can get a built-in translator for your browser. For example if you use Chrome, install this and then you can just right-click on the page and it will translate it all into English.

Internet Explorer has something similar, you just need to install the Bing toolbar if it's not there already.

Or you can just cut and paste all the Spanish text into Google Translate.

I think it might be worth looking again, as Lobster does unlimited international calls to many countries and unlimited in Spain as well. Look at the Lobster link above.
