I want to get a local microSIM for my iPhone while in Spain for a couple weeks. Doing a search, some people like Yoigo. Anyone used them and do they offer english instructions? I tried the website and it's all Spanish.

P.S. I cut down an Italian TIM card I have and it seemed to work in my Sprint iPhone (it changed the carrier to TIM) so I think I'm ready in that regard.

I used to have a Yoigo, prepaid telephone, for the first year and half of living here (Madrid). I don't remember any English package coming with the telephone and the card. They are likely to be the cheapest option, but note that their coverage is not as good as the other bigger providers like Telefonica, Orange or Vodafone.

I changed last year to a Smartphone, and switched to Vodafone, so I have no clue, what they are offering now, and their instructions includes English as well. (but my best guess is, that it would be very unlikely.)

Thanks for the info. I suspected I might have to go with a more major carrier to get an english option and pay for the privilege. But it's only two weeks so the extra cost wouldn't be that much.
