Hi, I know there are three main network providers here in spain, with several others piggy backing them, is there a list anywhere of what networks piggyback on which networks? only orange and movistar have good reception up by my folks in Polop

Iv’e read several threads on mobiles amd also wonder if any payg networks provide free wap (internet) and texts even if its capped (like they all do in the uk) or wether threre is such a thing as a bolt on to give it free for a small charge again as in the uk! - ive got a decent phone out here and use it to check email and small bits of info, - im currently roaming so im looking to buy a payg spanish sim, I use texts and the internet so looking for the best option, any info is appreciated as im looking to buy one in the next few days!
Thanks Ste
