SIM Card for Spain
|Information and Talk Rates Chart|
|Key Features||Initial Credit||Local calls within Spain||International Calls||Text / SMS Rates||Internet/Data Rates|
*Calls to the USA and Canada are just €0.01 (slightly more than a penny) per minute plus about $0.38 per connection so if you make one minute calls, you will only be able to talk for about 30 minutes. Conversely, if you make one long call, you will be able to speak for close to 1000 minutes. Most users will have at least a couple of hours of initial call credit to call the US or Canada.
The Orange “Mundo” SIM card is an exceptional value for travelers to Spain who need to make and receive calls and/or have data service on their cell phone or tablet. The initial SIM card features approximately 900 minutes of international calls, unlimited calls within Spain and unlimited incoming calls. If that is not enough, you can always add additional call credit locally in Spain or through Cellular Abroad. In addition, you can add a 3G data plan to your SIM card and get great data rates. Plus, for an additional $19, you can also add a US phone number to your SIM card on top of the Spanish number already provided. Each $19 bundle gives you 6 hours of incoming calls to your US number. You can forward your current US number to the new one or simply give people back home the new number. This will save them the expense of having to place an international call to Spain.
The Orange Mundo SIM card is available in standard, micro and nano sizes and is the SIM card of choice for any traveler to Spain.

For just $49 for 1GB or $69 for 2GB, you can have the convenience of accessing your favorite apps such as Skype, Google Maps, Google Voice Translate and checking your emails securely just about anywhere in Spain. Add a data plan to your SIM card order during check out or tell your sales rep which bundle you are interested in.
Will the Spain SIM card work with my phone?
As long as your cell phone is unlocked and has the 900 and 1800 Mhz bands, it is compatible with your phone.
How do I know if my phone is unlocked?
You cannot tell physically if your cell phone is unlocked. If you are with AT&T and you put a different SIM card (such as T-Mobile) in and it picks up a network, it is unlocked. Conversely, if you put another SIM card in and it says, “enter subsidy code” or similar, it is locked. Call your carrier to check to see if your phone is unlocked or if it qualifies for being unlocked.
Do you offer micro and nano SIM cards?
Yes. They are available during checkout.
Why don’t I just purchase a SIM card when I get to Spain?
While this SIM card is available in Spain, it is not available everywhere. The Orange Mundo SIM was designed specifically for the travelers and has much better rates than just any SIM card. In addition, purchasing the SIM card before your trips means that you are ready to go as soon as you land in Spain and you will have your number prior to your departure. Plus, the US number add on is a Cellular Abroad exclusive.
How good is the coverage?
In a word; excellent. Orange, Espana is one of the largest carriers in Spain.
Where can I get more talk time?
You can get additional call credit either through Cellular Abroad or through any café or tabac in Spain.
Will it work as soon as I land in Spain?
Yes it will. You will have to email Cellular Abroad some information in order to register the SIM card. Spanish law requires cell phone users to provide an address in Spain, their name and their passport number. The registration information is provided together with the SIM card.
Does it work outside of Spain?
Yes it does but roaming rates will be charged.
How much will it cost people in the USA/Canada to call me on my Spanish number?
That depends on their plan. A great option is to add the “US Number” feature to your service. Each $19 will give you 360 minutes of incoming calls on a US number.
Can I keep my usual US cell phone number ?
Yes you can. Purchase the US Number add on and forward your current number to the new one (ask your carrier what the procedure is). This is ideal for business travelers who need to be reached at all times but is also a double edged sword for travelers going for a bit of rest and relaxation as anyone who calls your usual number will reach you. Another option is just to give a select few your new US number.
Can I use the SIM card next year when I go to Spain?
Yes, as long as you add at least 5 Euros to your account. Your Spanish SIM is valid for 12 months between recharges.
