Hello,

Can anyone tell me what the best carrier would be for my iPhone for two months of unlimited data, no contract, for use in Spain? Cost is a factor but the most important thing is the carrier with the best satellite coverage across most of the Camino. Data needs to be unlimited and fast as possible. Whatever the best option for two months, where would be the best place to get it set up?

Thanks!

Movistar has the highest coverage followed by Vodafone, Orange has spotty coverage.
Check www.willmyphonework.net with your model of iPhone, the US models have different LTE frequencies vs. the EU models, you'll still get LTE coverage on fewer frequencies.
Tuenti has the best deals for large chunks of data, 7GB for €21 and is on the Movistar network.
Here is a link of the best deals on prepaid with data. http://prepaid-data-sim-card.wikia.com/wiki/Spain

Make sure your iPhone is unlocked.

If your phone is NOT unlocked, T Mobile has a very good international plan that is a part of your regular plan (but ask for details) - mine is automatically available as soon as I land in Europe.
