I am travelling to Spain next Saturday for a week long stay. My current cell is a CDMA phone, so it can not be unlocked for use in Europe. I read a few cell phone threads here from the past, but am still a bit confused. I don't anticipate a lot of actual calling usage, but would like to be able to text the US, and possibly access my email via the web.
What are the advantages to renting a cell vs. buying a pre-paid phone? Are there any advantages to buying a pre-paid in Spain rather than a pre-paid quad-band in the US? Do any of the Spanish sites have websites written in English?
Thanks so much!
