    Hi:

    First, yes, I guess that is a bit of a warning...

    But really, I want to get a Pay-As-You-Go card while I am there, I guess, to put into my Unlocked iPhone. Whose card should I buy while I am there?

    Buy anyone, except 3. As in, do not buy www.three.co.uk

    Rubbish network coverage, and customer service in India.

    Avoid - you have been warned.

    Do not pay any more than £10 for a Sim Card - you can get them as cheap as £2 and in some cases free, if you had a British address.

    Don't go into the main branded shops, try and go to independent/small Mobile Phone retailers. Buy your Sim there. Plus you will get better informed advice.

    A Three SIM wont work in an iPhone anyway, given that Three is a 3G network and the iPhone is only 2G.

    Vodafone are always a good bet, they've got the best coverage generally speaking. Or, you could go with O2 - the iPhone's native home in the UK - they give away a lot of free SIM cards so you can normally pick them up dirt cheap.

    you could try Tesco mobile. Tesco are a supermarket chain, you can get a SIM only for £1 or maybe even free now. They actually use the O2 network.

    I have a Pay as you Go 02 sim in mine as it seems pretty good. For £10 a month I get the £10 in calls and 300 texts for FREE.

    Sweet- I have some choices. Thanks- I will be totally lost when I get there!

    My wife was messing with my iPhone last night. I bookmarked our hotel in Google Maps. She made it do out a route from that bookmark to Harrods. Should I be worried? :eek:
