Lobster Mobile for ex-pats in Spain

Lobster mobile sim cards
Lobster mobile in Spain is perfect for ex-pats to use and Findinspain is here to help you get the deal you want. The first HUGE advantage is that with LOBSTER, everything is done in English. So why perfect for ex-pats? It is a service you can turn on and turn off and always keep your number. When in Spain you have a Spanish mobile, when not in Spain you are not paying for one. How perfect is that?
  • Very reasonable prices starting at only 12€ a month.
  • No long term contract
  • FREE calls to the UK and in Spain.
  • When you are not in Spain, you can switch it off and stop paying.
When you get back to Spain, you log in online to switch the number back on and resume the service. Free calls and texts plus not paying for the service when it is not needed. Spanish mobile phone companies might be able to match the prices but only LOBSTER will deal with you in English and allow you to suspend the service whenever you need to?

If you like the idea of dealing with a mobile phone service provider in Spain in English and being able to suspend the service when you are not in Spain, then you have one more decision to make. How much data will you need to go with your free phone calls?
