I was wondering if you could please tell me a gsm cell phone service provider in UK? I need to buy a sim card for my phone while I am traveling.
Thanks...

^^^ skill brother I saw that you can, but how does it work? I mean if it says GBP 11 credit, do you think that means it's ready to use, just pop it in the phone and start talking? do I have to do some sort of registration? even with the GBP 11 credit already added on there??

Just pick a simcard up from a shop for about 5pound or under...02 are pretty cheap or free. They work on dual band phones. Nothing to worry about.

I'm assuming that it is on a pay as u go tariff. Once you've popped it into your phone and the service is up and you've uploaded credit, you're ready to go.:D

The ones from the actual company?

Of course they work. Downside is you still have to top up on them, so really you're only saving on £10, tops.

Ah, true. I was still thinking back to the old pricing. Jazakumullah Khair for the correction.

lol no probz.. :okay: but i got mine for £2.50 anyway...it's abit of a scam coz ppl get em free off the net and then sell em on for £2.50...but I guess it's better than paying £5 for those who dont have net access :)
