    Will be going to Spain and need to get a SIM card for my phone. Would like to buy a SIM card before my departure from US. Need it to be functional the moment I will lend to be able to make pone calls.
    Any suggestions?

    When are you leaving? if I find mine that I used a couple months ago when I was in Madrid, I could send it to you so that you dont have to pay for a new one.

    Or if you just want to buy one before you leave, here you go: International SIM. This is where I got my SIM from when I traveled to Spain. Actually I usually get my SIM through them when I travel international. Good coverage.

    Found it. It is a +44 number which is UK. Still worked quite well while I was in Spain. PM your address if you want me to send it.

    In that case, I would find a T-Mobile or Vodafone once you land. You can get a pre-paid SIM that has data. Is your phone unlocked?

    I am afraid I might not have enough time to buy a sim once I land. Is there a T-mobile or Vodafone at BCN?

    yes, my phone is unlocked.

    Hiya, I've also used the same guys as Efilon87 - pretty sure all their SIMs come with data. If you're only planning on using data, they have a specific data SIM.
