Portuguese Vodafone PAYG

Go down

Portuguese Vodafone PAYG

Post by laneside on Mon 21 Oct 2013 - 16:31

If anyone is planning on travelling down Portugal and wondering which PAYG simm card for your dongle I can recommend Voafone, we have had a brilliant connection most of the way down even way out in the sticks.  I am sure someone will report a black spot but we have not found one yet

Best I can tell you is that 15 euros buys you the sim card from any Vadafone shop which gives you about 1500 hrs wifi and then you may, if you are a geek, be able to top up on line or at the nearest Vodafone shop or as I did at the post office

A mi-fi you put the sim card in it and it creates a wireless network, you can connect 5 devices to it

Did you have to enter them manually?
I've had 3 sim cards in mine and always auto detected the settings
I'll have to look at setting it up for Portuguese Vodafone before I lend it to Frank than Very Happy 
I'm going to set it up now with a fool proof SSID and password before I forget Very Happy

Bob I may well be wrong as I often am but is that just for phone calls and not data, as in internet

Hey Ladylee I have just looked on Ebay and be careful as so many are just for phones and not data even Bob got confused

Perhaps safer to nip into Portuguese Vodafone shop as they all seem to speak some English

Confused yes Alan, so I will wait until we get to Portugal and get one there, will you be staying down at Zahora for the rest of the winter or will you be returning to Portugal at some date.

The reason for asking is we will be calling at your site on the way home and also Belle Vista camping for a recce, thats in Spain north of Algeciras.

We will certainly be at Zahora for the next few weeks as our doggy is due in season and there are no stray dogs around here  I am on a mission though as there is a nice cottage for sale up near Laval in France and I would love to see it but having difficulty convincing Lynda to leave the sun as yet

Looks like we will miss you and Lynda then as we will not be down your way until end of Feb. 

Hope the mission goes well as the area around Laval is great and Mayenne is not far away Wink Wink I am getting the winter blues real bad now and cannot wait to get away (maybe before Barb thinks we are going but hush for now) my problem is keeping her away from home for longer than a couple of months. Will have to sweet talk her into letting me go south then she can fly out later, Hmmm Rolling Eyes 

Enjoy the sunny  Alan as its getting real cold here with snow around and they say we due a freezing time for a while.
