Reezekeys Posted June 15, 2016 Share Posted June 15, 2016 I'm going to be in the UK for most of July. Since my AT&T iPhone 5S is way off contract, I decided to unlock it so I could pop in a SIM card when I got to England. My idea is to get a "pay-as-you-go" monthly SIM card from one of the carriers there, and just pay for a month of service, then put my original AT&T SIM card back when I return to the US. I'm not looking for specific advice on plans just tips on which carriers may be better suited for me in terms of coverage. The itinerary covers a lot of the UK, from Horsham in the south, to Cardiff and Norwich on the west & east, through London, Cambridge & Moseley and up the M6 to Scotland where I'll be in Perth & Edinburgh. I'll be looking for a plan that's mostly data, as I won't need to voice-call any UK phones. I think some networks may offer faster data connections than others which why I mentioned that. TIA for any advice! One more Q: I've heard that the major carriers have shops in Heathrow where I can get a SIM card as soon as I land. I would do this except I wonder if the prices are inflated at those locations (like the airport food stalls here in the US ). I appreciate any helpful hints that can keep my costs down. Thanks mates!
