    The major UK mobile phone companies are all but giving away sim cards....they can be bought for very little, next to nothing as a matter of fact, all over ebay. They usually come with no credit but...

    It is, of course, a disgrace and a rip-off. Nobody in his or her right mind should ever consider using their international roaming (unless it is for an absolute emergency)....for European travel, in...

    In this day and age, why would any company make a tri band phone? Wouldn't it have made more sense to make one model, a quad band 800/900/1800/1900? Don't get it myself.

    It's very simple of course. There's no pressure on them to have reasonable international roaming rates. They will claim, of course, that it all comes out in the wash that if they were forced to...
