Yet another UK SIM card question.

When I visit the UK, can I buy a PAYG SIM card, without a valid UK address or UK credit card?

Or even a cheap phone and SIM package, just like Jason Bourne did at Waterloo (topical).

I doubt it, but have a vague recollection that I may have read it here - but can't find any reference.

If yes, then from where, with whom and the best package for calls and data.

With thanks, yours, a non-frequent home visitor.

Yes, with a 3 sim & a 10 bundle you get 100 min 3000 texts & 1/2 gig data which can be used in 19 countries including CH.

Thanks - just found the website .... But good to know that I can get from newsagent and supermarket.

Looking at their bog-standard phone prices, I may go to their store and pick up a phone, too.
