Talking Back in Spain in 3 Days!!

YAY!! I got my visa today, paid for my ticket and I will be back in Spain in 3 days!!

Ill be there for a whole month, so I am super happy about that, going to be house hunting for now.

Quick question, work is crazy and although I will be getting a dongle for 3G, carrying around my laptop is a pain sometimes.

Anyone have experience with iPads, I use mine over here which is 3G enabled via my service provider...its like a little sim card you place in it. Does anyone know if a pre paid one is available in Spain. It is alot easier working off the iPad than laptop when you out and about.

Oh and three cheers for me....back in Spain again

Hi Jean

Check this out

Vodafone: Internet Móvil Prepago

They do the USB dongle jobbys. Now, I am not familiar with Ipads but cant you use your sim card out of your dongle (or buy one) and just insert it into yout Ipad? or does it not work like that?

Oh it's my age - technology is running away with me!!!

De nada!

I will have to play with one - i am curious! I have the iphone (3g) and love it but its way too small for serious browsing. I have to admit I am soo tempted to take out a contract for iphone 4 but it's soo expensive (not jsut the phone, the flipin tarifs), I have a great cheapy PAYG deal now and think i will end up spending LOADS more if i switch!

They rekon you can use the ipad as a phone? Is that true? Surely you would look rediculous holding that to your ear?

Yeah the iPhone 4 is apparently really good, I was suppose to review it but I will be in Spain by that time...Id rather be in Spain to be honest hehe.

The iPad is a bigger version of the iPhone kind of, you can use it as a phone thats true, I have never tried it though...but for browsing the internet, emails, reading books, watching movies and the list goes on, it is fantastic. It is pretty expensive, but it really is worth the expense, ecspecially if you like me you use it for work. And its just another fun gadget hehehe

Jean,

A lot of the bars, ayuntamiento and ferries, are providing free wifi, I notice many of the locals are taking their laptops into a bar, buying a drink and connecting to the web,

Hi Hepa,
I know about that, and really that is a blessing in disguise. Will save loads of money with that...I dont think they will like me much though as I can sit for hours on end on the net
Worth a try I guess

A bar half full is better than an empty one, the proprietors work on the theory that seats full of people attract others,
