You can read about my initial experience with HolidayPhone at my introductory post from last week. I’m pleased to say that the SIM arrived this week in plenty of time for my upcoming trip to Barcelona, Spain, for Mobile World Congress.
So the SIM has arrived — but that’s not all. I’m very impressed with the “get started in three easy steps” guide that comes with the SIM. This is the extra service level that I was hoping for. This is where the value comes from. They’ve done ALL the thinking for me.

As you can see they’ve not only given me detailed instructions on how to forward my existing mobile number to the new SIM number. That’s useful. What’s even better is that they give you the specific APN settings that you need, especially for your iPhone/iPad. Utterly invaluable.
I really don’t want to be messing around Googling for this stuff and I don’t want to have to try and parse the information from a Spanish-language brochure. Indeed I don’t know if this sort of information comes with the SIM either.
So, as far as I’m concerned, thanks to HolidayPhone, I now have a fully operational Spanish SIM, ready to rock, with a lovely 1GB of data loaded up. (Plus a load of minutes, but that’s not my focus! For me, it’s data-data-data).
Nice work HolidayPhone! Very impressive service!
