OH and I both have Spanish mobiles but I also have a UK one for when we go elsewhere.
I am a low user but only reason I don't use the UK one all the time over here is that the only people that are likely to phone me are in Spain. By using my UK phone they would have to pay for an international call. I would also have to pay to receive the calls as I would be on roaming.
BTW friends of ours over here on holiday went to register their phones this week. Don't know which network they are with but they were told the deadline for registering had been extended.
