Useful information about getting a mobile phone whilst in the UK.
There are quite a few providers available, so shop around before settling on one. Orange, O2 and Three are rumoured to have the best coverage at Collingwood, though, so you may want to take that into consideration. Pay-as-you-go and contract phones are offered by all providers, although we recommend the former – it can be set up without you needing a UK bank account, and makes it easier to manage your spending. There are various packages available, for both pay-as-you-go or contract, some of which offer special deals for international calls. Remember, though: Skype is your friend! Not only does it allow you to talk online for free, it can be used to make calls to landlines at local rates. An ideal way to keep your costs low and your parents happy...
