Hi there, anyone know where I can buy one in Nerja, or perhaps Malaga airport on arrival? Looking for one I can put in an unlocked mobile which I'll then leave in our holiday home for future visits. I'll use mainly for Internet so need to be able to tether my iPad to it. Any recommendations?

Just went through this, after a dozen visits to Spain decided to finally get me a local prepaid Sim chip. The Movistar stores did not have them as I went to 2 locations in Malaga and was turned down.
However if you plan to take the bus from the main bus terminal in Malaga to get to Nerja you can take the train from the airport to Maria Zambrano station. There in the mall at the station is a vodafone store that will get you a prepaid chip. We initially paid 10 euros for a 60 minute 200mb preloaded chip good for 30days. Went back a few days later and topped up with 15 euro 200 minute 1.2 GB for 3 months as we will be back in Spain in July.
Cannot remember a phone store or a kiosk in the airport, as I am usually rushing to get out.

Hi there, thanks for getting back to me. Doing the public transport route in a few weeks, will take your recommendation then. Great forum!

If you won't be using the phone to call other Spanish numbers the Orange Mundo card is good. You get 1GB Internet to use in 30 days. Calls to other other Orange Mundo numbers are free, so a couple with one each works well. Cost is 9 Euros PAYG.

A big attraction is that calls to the UK cost 0.01 Euro a minute.

The only circumstances in which this card is not the right one, is if you want to make lots of lengthy calls to other Spanish numbers.

Lots of places sell them. Look for what we used to call Internet cafes. Places with a few computers for use, copying facilities, etc. They sell SIMs for several providers. There are Orange outlets too but I am not sure where you will find one of those where you live.
