    I will be traveling to the UK very soon and have already gotten Verizon to internationally unlock my 4S. Do any UK members (or other people in my situation) know if any UK cell providers sell prepaid data only microsims? And if so, what the cost might be? I will be there for a week.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    'Three', O2, & Vodafone sell PAYG sims
    Not sure about micro sims though

    I use Three, who seem to have the best deal - 1GB for £10 rolling monthly contract (you can cancel at any time). If you need more data a £5 add gives you unlimited

    Coverage is good in London HSPA & 3G but might be a bit patchy elsewhere (but still as good than I used to get on O2)

    They're the young challenger that's focussed on providing great service for smartphones


    Oh & you should be able to walk into a store & buy the sim then & there, ready to use

    Might as well just use Giffgaff. You can order a free micro-sim from them online.

    250 Mins, Unlimited Texts, Unlimited Internet for £10 a month.

    You may not use the texts and mins but the unlimited internet is great for £10, especially as it runs on O2's network. However you can't tether.
