Note: The phone I bought for Ireland is for international travel, it is able to use pre-paid cards from a variety of countries, allowing one to call at domestic rates and, in the case of Spain, have free incoming calls.
On my 2003 visit to Spain, "Cellular Abroad" sent me a loaner phone in order to test out their cell phone in Spain. After testing and completing a write up, on using a cell phone in Spain, I returned the phone back to "Cellular Abroad".

For my family's 2004 trip to Ireland, it was very important to stay in touch with my wife's ailing father. Consequently, I order an unlocked cell phone from "Cellular Abroad" to take with us to Ireland.

Cell Phone advantages for the traveler:
  • Make Emergency calls easily.
  • You don't have to coordinate your touring plans around access to a phone. This is particularly important when you are dealing with several hours of time difference between you and the person you are calling.
  • Much easier for family members/business associates to contact you.
  • International SIM cards mean you can travel through approximately 115 different countries sometimes retaining the same phone number and cellular plan.
  • Save money ; In Spain using the cell phone I paid around .60 euros (60) per minute for a call back to the USA. From the USA, my wife used a local prepaid phone card and reach me via the cell phone in Spain for about 35 (USD) per minute. Even after you use up your cell phone's pre-paid minutes, incoming calls can be received with no cellular fees.
  • Voice mail and text messaging will insure you get important messages.

The Cell phone worked will in most of Southern Ireland but as to be expected, we did encounter some areas of spotty reception. One draw back, is the Southern Ireland cell phone service provider does not provide coverage for Northern Ireland. The "Cellular Abroad" website provides the details but basically; with out a UK credit card, you will not be able to use this phone in the north.

For more information see using a cell phone in Spain. If you decided to buy a cell phone from "Cellular Abroad", make certain you use the discount code provided at the bottom of the cell phone in Spain page.
