"Sunset bar. Anything goes."
I am hoping someone can steer me in the right direction for getting my daughter a cell phone for her upcoming 3 weeks in Toledo, Spain. She will be on a University sponsored study trip, but we have had no advice from them on cell phones. I want her to have a phone for calling local numbers as well as calling back to the U.S. She will have her computer and internet access, so she does not need a smart phone. I think she can live without messaging if that makes it simpler/cheaper. She has an iPhone, but AT&T rates are $1 per minute and I believe they charge for incoming calls as well. It cannot be unlocked yet.
Where should we look to rent a phone so she can call without being overly concerned about minute rates? I am guessing she will be on the phone for 30 minutes or so a day, but with teenagers who knows?
She leaves May 14, and so far we don't know where she will be staying, either a dormitory or a private home, but not in a hotel or youth hostel. I think this adds to our problem, as I don't think she will have the time to pick one up in the airport in Madrid, and we are not sure of a mailing address.
I consider myself tech savvy, yet find myself baffled by all the fees and options. Is there a way to rent from a US company before she departs?
Anyone who can simplify this process for me will have my sincere gratitude.
