I certainly wouldn't buy one in the UK. They are dealers who have to
make a profit. I bought my sim card from a newsagents near Malaga. It
cost me 24 euros and had 20 euros credit on it. This is the info that
came with it (sorry I got the voucher costs wrong!). I buy the 1Gb
ones which last me up to 3 months of daily use.

Once the USB modem is connected to your computer you will need to
click on the Vodafone icon and select sms. Using the sms screen send
a text message to the number 207 with one of the three text codes
listed below. You can also place the SIM card into any unlocked phone
and call the customer service number 123 using your mobile phone.
