Question Where to get VodafoneSpanishSIM Mail order?

Could anyone suggest a reputable mail order Company in Spain that would send a Spanish Vodafone pay as you go SIM to the UK?

<Preferably that speak or permit ordering in English!>

Maybe just a telephone shop in/near Torre Del Mar, would do?

Why do you want it in the UK, you can buy them in thousands of places as soon as you are in Spain.

Sometimes it is easier to have the spanish number set up before you leave the uk. Especially if you have lots of people to notify.
We bought ours online, sent by 1st class post, arrived within 48 hours.
We used 0044.co.uk but there are probably loads more if you do a google search.

Got mine through 0044.co.uk too before coming over. All the instructions for setting the different tarriffs were in English too which is an advantage ....

Hi there. We can vouch for the 0044.co.uk sims. Bought 2 pay as you go sims before we went for £29.99 each, and for that we also got 30€ of credit on each one. They load the sims with 18€ then you fill in a little questionaire and pop it into a Spanish post box to get the other 12€. Got ours within a few days. All worked very smoothly.

I am glad you told us that cos I wondered if you still got the credit on them.
but there are some deals here on the carboots at times, like 5€`s for 18 €`s credit etc.

As an aside to this, does anyone know if Vodafone still do the twin-pack sims with very cheap calls between the two? We saw these on a visit, but already had a Telefonica Movistar PAYG up and running.

We bought ours as 2 seperate sims (not a twin pack) and the instructions tell you how to set them up for cheap calls between the 2. It is easy to do - just send a text incl the number of the 2nd phone, which then has to reply to accept the deal. It is then cheaper to talk than it is to send a text. Simply dial 101 from iether phone to get the other.
