If you plan on visiting Spain any time soon, don’t take off without a prepaid SIM card. The Spain SIM card provides a simple, convenient, and affordable way for any traveler to make and receive those all-important calls while abroad.

The prepaid SIM card for Spain is a practical option for using your existing world phone as a prepaid Spain cell phone while you’re in the country at a better rate than you’d pay for a Spain cell phone rental. It’s also a trouble-free ticket to using the same options that the Spaniards themselves use—the local Spanish cell phone system. The SIM chip, combined with an unlocked GSM World cell phone, helps you keep the lines of communication open without being burdened by high international roaming surcharges applicable when you use your “home” SIM card abroad. You’ll likewise enjoy the benefit of SMS text messaging, e-mail, voicemail, GPRS (Wireless Internet), a local cell phone number in Spain, and FREE incoming calls. The prepaid feature gives you complete control over your costs, and with our low domestic and international calling rates and 30 second billing increments, having a cell phone in Spain is affordable and cost-effective for all. Access to customer service from your Spain cellular phone is available 24 hour a day, so you’ll always have assistance with any unexpected issues or questions about your calls. No yearly contract, monthly charges, or credit check is involved.

Your Spain SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM cell phone that supports the 900 and 1800 frequencies. If you do not have your own international cell phone, we have several models available for your consideration. Please click here for more information.

Adding Airtime

Additional airtime is available through the purchase of airtime vouchers, also called recharge cards. These airtime vouchers are available throughout Spain at convenience stores, petrol stations and Vodafone shops and authorized dealers. When you have less than 5 EUR credit on your SIM card, at the beginning of an outgoing call, you will hear a voice recording to let you know your balance is low.

Once you purchase an airtime voucher, simply scratch off the gray protective layer to reveal your voucher code. When typed into the keypad of your international cell phone, the voucher will credit your balance the respective EUR denomination you purchased.

Alternatively you may enter *133*voucher-code# and the airtime credit will be added.

Remember not to purchase another SIM card when your airtime credit is depleted; you only need a recharge voucher! Incoming calls are always free, even when you run out of airtime.

To check your airtime balance, simply dial *134# and your balance will be displayed on the screen of your cell phone.

Service Life

The Singapore SIM card has an expiration date, which is indicated on the Welcome Kit. You need to make your first outgoing call before this date. When you do so, the expiration date will be changed to 6 months from that date. One week before the expiration date, when you receive incoming calls you will hear announcements reminding you of the approaching expiration date. If your SIM card expires, your phone number will be recycled and any remaining airtime will be forfeit.
