Phones

Hola,

I have a working iPhone that's currently not connected to any service in the US. I need to stay in touch with home when I'm in Galicia next week. If I bring it with me, is there a way to purchase international minutes? Do I need a sim card?

Re: Phones

Yes, you will need a SIM card - no phone operates without one.

1. Try your iPhone at home with a SIM card from another operator to make sure it's not locked even if you're not under any contract - Apple has its ways in overprotecting their stuff.

2. Buy a local SIM and airtime when in Spain; you can find sim-packs almost everywhere. You might google for spanish operators to find best rates for international calls. IPhone4 uses micro-sims which might be more difficult to find, but you (or any decent phone shop) can trim regular SIM to micro size.

I am not so sure that iphones can be opened and SIMs put in/taken out? I was looking at one about a year ago in the UK and asked a similar Q and was told that it wasn't posible and that if I was in a different country I would have to connect to the local network and pay the roaming charges.
A alternative solution could be to buy a cheap disposable phone when you are here. They are pretty cheap, come with SIM ready to go and a lot less hassle.

Although calling the US from Spain on a pay as you go tarif could be very expensive. But incoming calls should be free. So if you give your Spanish number to the people in the US, they should be able to call you much cheaper than you calling them if that makes sense.

SIM can be removed/replaced in iPhone:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iphone#Storage_and_SIM

iPhone is usually sold with a contract and the operator will sure try to convince you to pay roaming charges rather than insert some other operator's SIM. Unfortunatelly simply swapping a SIM won't do it - iPhone would very likely have to be unlocked (hacked / jailbroken) too.

I agree about having some simple phone to use with local numbers. My tip - look for advanced models from few years back (lots of features for few bucks).

In three days I´ve spent close to 100 euros with the pay as you go plan. That includes two 19e cell phones with an initial 12e bonus.
This was a big mistake. I should´ve bought an int´l phone from my provider in the us and changed sim cards here.
Live and learn!

SHOPPING! SHOPPING! SHOPPING! As I´ve said before, I am a shopper. Beautiful shopping here, cheap! I wouldnt have EVER thought Gran Via and the surroundings were so good with prices. I bought a pair of cute shoes for 5000pts($25), 4 sets of silk pajamas for 6000pts($30),souvenirs up the ying-yang and barely spent 6000pts($30), and my favorite restaurant, I NEVER spent anymore than 1500pts($8).

Las Doce Uvas (The Twelve Grapes)

by Redang

There is a tradition in Spain: The Twelve Grapes.

Every 31 of December, the Madrileños (people from Madrid) go to Puerta del Sol to welcome the new year. And the tradition (just in Spain), is to have twelve grapes. Why this tradition and when did it begin?

It began in 1.909, and the reason was that that year there was a great excess of grapes in the country, and they decided to have a grape with each bell strike. Then, you will lucky over the new year. They are also called "The Grapes of Luck".

Retiro Park at Night

by Redang

Parque de El Retiro (Retiro Park) opens from 6,00 to 24,00 (6,00 a.m. to midnight), and if you happen to be either late in the evening or early in the morning, you can experience the quietness of the park (always beautiful anyway).
