Simcard in Belgium

We will be spending several weeks in Brugge Belgium in the spring and would like to buy a simcard for our unlocked quad phone. Any and all suggestions as to where and which company we should consider will be greatly appreciated.

Here's a link to Belgian cell providers. Click on the provider name and it'll lead you to a summary page with links to their websites. If I'm not mistaken, Orange might offer the best coverage. You should be able to purchase a card at one of the Relay shops at the Brussels airport.

Both Lebara and Lycamobile offer SIM cards in Belgium, and they're much cheaper than Orange. One of the best things is that they have websites in English and can switch all the voicemail prompts and text messages from French/Dutch to English. You can pick them up at any convenience store or tobacco shop--the Relay store at Brussels Airport will have them. I've found that they are difficult to top up online with an American credit card, so be prepared to visit a shop when you want to add more minutes.

Thank you for your suggestions, Philip and T. We will not be arriving by plane but by train from London. I will be buying the new sim in Brugge once we arrive. I will have an Italian mobile if needed before acquiring the Belgian one.
