Cell Phones

Jump to last reply

My mom and I are taking a trip to London next April and it's my first time going overseas. I plan on taking my Galaxy S3 but only using it on the wifi for browsing (no texts or phone calls). But I want my mom and I to be able to contact each other if we are separated, or when we need to call any local businesses or our family friend who lives right outside of London.

My mom's phone is an ancient flip phone from Verizon, so I can get a local sim card for her. My phone doesn't have a sim, so maybe I can find an old phone around the house or one that my friends no longer use.

So when I get to London, what's the best course of action? Find a shop that sells UK sim cards? Will it work in any cell phone that takes sim cards? Do I need to be a local to buy a local sim card?
