If it is like in Spain, all incoming calls are free in the country the phone is purchased in. I hope a local can chime in quickly for you.

I mean, the SIM card is purchased in. There are many experts here who will tell you which one is best.

http://www.prepaidgsm.com lists SIM options available.

As far as I know incoming calls are always free in the UK...

Right now LeBara.com is offering free SIMs... they do need to be delivered in the UK though. Maybe use your hotel address...

They are free. Whoever calls you from the US will still pay what they normally would pay on any international call. That of course would be mucho dinero.

Others offer them for free or for a maximum of £1
