Asking for friends who are there for the next 3 months and have 3g ipad.

they don§t have access to a computer so it would really need to be able to just put it in ipad and it works, appreciate that this might not be possible.

If there is, details of where to buy and what to ask for would be welcome.

Thanks

Indoor market..
A load of the funsters that are already in Beni have them..
Sure someone will comment more in a bit..

HOWEVER. There are that many bars and hotels with free WIFI, Why not just use those ??
I DO... :)

I assume they just want the flexibility if it is possible.

Go to Andy's Phone Shop located in the indoor market. Very helpful man who we used last week. Also sells SIM card which allows you to call UK for a cent a minute + iva(vat).
Perhaps your friends could email him in advance - andysphoneshop@gmail.com

No connection, was recommended to us by friends, only met him last week, very helpful and knowledgeable.

Thanks Encantador for asking on our behalf. Sure enough we found Andy in the indoor market and he was very helpful. We purchased a SIM card which gives us the flexibility of keeping in touch with family and friends back home.

What is the best data only SIM in Spain please?

We bought an Italian Data SIM this year in Italy and it was brilliant, much cheaper than the Campsites WiFi. We would like to buy one in Spain too , any recommendations? Thanks

We used a Hits data only Sim in Spain last winter, it worked fine in our MiFi.

In May we used a Lebarra SIM, bought locally. Lasted for 30 days from registration and gave 1GB for 8 Euros, 2GB for 14 Euros and 3GB for 25 Euros

Don't forget you will need your passport to buy/register the SIM

But you can get orange sims / top ups etc at the indoor market.
