Lobster Mobile for ex-pats in Spain

Lobster mobile sim cards

The Lobster mobile service in Spain is perfect for ex-pats to use because it gives you a Spanish mobile number with free calls in Spain and the UK. Better still is that if you do not need it for any time, you suspend the service online but keep the number.

Findinspain is here to help you get the deal you want. The first HUGE advantage is that everything is done in English

So why perfect for ex-pats? First and foremost, it is a service you can turn on and turn off and always keep your number. When you are in Spain, you have a Spanish mobile, when you are not in Spain or you do not need to use the service you stop paying for one but still keep the number. 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?
