I'm still confused. We do have a quad band, worldphone, T-Mobil. I was able to call her from Spain last year but there were lots of charges since we didn't change to the Spanish sim card (it was just a short visit) I'm sure she'll figure it out when she gets there. Hopefully she'll pick a cheap phone with a good plan but I wrote down all your helpful suggestions so we can go over them before she leaves. Thanks again.

I bought a Telefonica SIM on my visit.
It wasn't cheap !! 60 euros including 12 euros of air time. It needs a top up at least once every 6 months to keep it active! It would seem the only failsafe way of doing this from outside of Spain is to get someone to go to a Telefonica shop, with your phone number and add the money ( minimum 5 euros) in person.

Yes that is about the only way. If you have a Spanish bank account and can use an on line facility, then you can top them up through that.

Jamongris, you can top it up with a credit card through Movistar\'s website .
