Thanks Ivar. I am bookmarking this page. The website showed that this is good for 28 days only. I will be walking longer than that. I have always used Orange because the service is good and it is easy to recharge my card along the way. I have always bought the $20 Euro plan for 15 GB and 80minutes of national calling. I only call albergues to check if they are open, especially this year as I start in November. Now to my long winded question. Going on the website you recommended it states you can recharge but I am not sure if there are locations along the way or if you can only recharge in Madrid. Do you know? If not thanks anyway and I will email them to try to find out. Thanks
Yes, look for the “orange” sticker at the check out counter. Many smaller shops offer this service.There are plenty of Orange (and other providers) tiendas in all sizeable towns where you can recharge your SIM card account.
In Irun I bought my SIM card in Tabacco. On Levante I recharged my SIM in a candy shop. In Zamora I recharged SIM in a bookstore. Just few examples
Are you sure it's a year? I thought it was six months.Also keep in mind that pre-paid SIM cards in Spain work for a year after the last top-up. So you might use it next year if you know exactly when you did it and are returning in that time frame. Otherwise you can throw it away. Or maybe donate it. In Spain of course
We're both right. It depends on the company:Last year (and all the years before) it was 1 year. I don't remember exactly in which year I used it consecutive. I think it was 2015. Maybe that changed???
Hahahaha, I was always (except last year) using Orange SIM. For me that's one reason more to choose Orange if I would plan to return the same or next year.We're both right. It depends on the company:
.Una duda bastante frecuente entre los usuarios de tarjetas móvil prepago es cuál es el plazo máximo sin realizar recargas de saldo antes de que la operadora móvil suspenda definitivamente la línea, es decir, corte la línea.www.rankia.com
Vodafone and Movistar, 6 months
Orange, 12 months
