The telephone system in Spain is still dominated by the formerly state-owned  Telefonica. The mobile telephone market is much more competitive than the land line market. Prices for land lines can be more expensive relative to the U.S. and other European countries.

Public Telephones
Seville is very well provided with street pay phones and they are are easy to use for both international and domestic calls. The phones accept coins and/or telephone cards (tarjetas telefónicas). Phone cards can be purchased at tobacco stands (estancos) and newsstands.
For international calls several companies offer prepaid cards.
We recommend telephone cards over coins.

Private Land Line Telephone
Installation or activation of a private telephone land line through Telefonica costs around 70 Euros. Look for special offers when connection may be offered for free. There are now several companies (Ono, Orange, Jazztel are a few) which also offer land lines, as well as internet and television services.

Mobile Phones
Spain uses GSM 900/1800 mobile phones (teléfono movil) which is compatible with the rest of Europe, but not with most phones in North America and Japan. Beware of calls being routed internationally (very expensive). You can buy a mobile phone with debit card starting at around 50 Euros in any store of  Movistar,  Vodafone or  Orange.
Or bring your phone with you and just buy a Spanish SIM-card for about 12 Euros, which normally come with about 9 Euros in calls (current price at Vodafone).
