Sim Card, UK, unlock phone question

Jump to last reply

We are still deciding on how we want to use a phone while spending 23 nights in England and Scotland. I have an iphone but I haven't had it too long and I'm not exactly a pro when it comes to making the best use of its applications. I was thinking of signing up for the int. plan temporarily and just pay 99¢/min. Then I wondered if we should try to get my husbands "razor" phone unlocked-which I have no idea who will do that for you (AT&T?? I wouldn't think so). I don't think I want to mess with my iphone by trying to unlock it.

We don't plan on using the phone a lot, probably just to call ahead to check for vacancies. I need to call the apartment owner when we arrive in Bath, for instance. I was planning on turning data off and using wi-fi where available for internet. I was also going to give AT&T the 30 bucks for 20MB of international data for those instances where wi-fi may not be available.

I just want to know if anyone has any opinion based on your experience if I should try to get our old phone unlocked and buy a sim in Bath or if we should just use the iphone.

OH! And those of you who have successfully unlocked your cell, can you please tell me exactly who did this for you?

Thanks!
