Our Spanish SIM cards with our phones outside of Spain.
 

This method is best if the bulk of your time will be sepnt in Spain and you will also make very short visits (a few days) to other countries in Europe and will not use the phone much while in the other countries.

 
Since our rental phones include the SIM chip inside, you simply use the phone on roaming and pay higher call rates when not in Spain.
 
    Advantages:
     
  - No need to purchase additional SIM cards for other countries.
     
  - No need to change SIM cards when you leave Spain for onother country.
     
  - You will have the same phone number in all countries you visit.
     
    Disadvantages:
     
  - Incoming calls will not be free when you are in other countries outside of Spain. Call rates
    are as follow...
    - 60 Euro cents per minute for outgoing calls.
- 30 Euro cents per minute for incoming calls.
- A 35 Euro cent connection fee on ALL calls (in and out).
     
  - Since the phones work on pre-paid call credit, you will need to have enough
    credit in the phones before you leave Spain to cover all of your calls while in other countries.
    You cannot add pre-paid call credit when outside of Spain.
     
  - If you run out of pre-paid call credit when outside of Spain you will not be
    able to make nor receive calls until you get back to Spain and add more pre-paid call credit.

    Advantages:
     
  - You avoid using roaming networks and hence do not pay for incoming calls and the
    outgoing rates are much lower.
     
    Disadvantages:
     
  - Added expense since you need to purchase a SIM card for each country you plan to visit.
    We provide most country SIM cards for between $49 and $69.
     
  - You need to change the SIM card in the phone when you arrive in other countries.
    Changing the SIM chip is easy but you will need to remember to do so.
     
  - Your phone number will change with each SIM card swap. For example, if you
    spend 1 week in Spain, 1 Week in France and another 10 days in Italy, you will have one phone number for Spain, another for France and a third for Italy.
