Microsim for iPad in Barcelona

Jump to last reply

Just to let interested people know, I purchased a prepaid microsim for an iPad at the Orange store at Passeig de Gracia 6 in Barcelona. This Orange store (there are others) is almost opposite the Apple store (not hard to remember!). It cost 40 euros for 30 days. It was 35 euros the week before - taxes went up in Spain from 18% to 21% on the 1st September. I didn't compare rates with any other companies. A passport was required and the man at the store spoke English and had the iPad up and running very quickly.

I found Orange to have good coverage from San Sebastian in the north to Ronda in the south with the exception of a short distance on the train between (I think) Ronda and Grenada. WiFi was used in hotels but the signal strength varied and I switched to cellular data at times.

Hope this helps someone.
