    I am no expert. But when i was out in Turkey a couple or more years ago Iwas advised to but a sim card from the country I was in and believe me it was a whole lot cheaper than using a Uk based sim card.

    I am 17 and it would mainly be for texting my girlfriend and a few mate so if I used a Tenrife simcard, I think it would cost them a lot to text me, but if its a UK sim it just takes it from their unlimited tariff

    Thanks for your help, but I will see what others say

    Well thats a catch 22 situation depends who u want to benefit most your own pocket or others

    surely if it is free for girlfriend then just buy a bundle, think most do one for being abroad

    Your text here

    i may be completely wrong but i thought it was always free/inclusive to send/receive a text from your country of origin, the only cost was when you sent a text using for example a uk sim abroad to whoever. therefore if you use a spanish sim it will just use texts from your bundle. so, no extra cost other than the sim. stands to reason you don't get charged to receive them because only way not to receive is to keep phone switched off, whereas with a call you can always reject it.
