Telephone:  

 

With the Spanish telephone network deregulated in the last few years like the rest of Europe, but still the major player in land lines is Telefonica who operatemost of the public pay phones in Barcelona.  Pay phones either work using coins or phone cards which you can buy in post offices and most newsagents and tabacco shops.

 

Mobile phones:

 

Frequencies for mobile phone use in Spain are GSM 900 and GSM 1800. Most Euiropean phones will work in Barcelona  but many visitors from the USA and Canada will not receive a signal and will need to get a sim card from a phone shop and use this to make calls while in Barcelona and the rest of Europe.

 

Before you travel it is best to contact your service provider for details of their roaming agreements wiht Spain and Europe. If you wish to hire a mobile during your stay you can do so from Viva Voce located at La Rambla 113 (Phone 302 1016).
