Cell phone in the UK

Hello All,

I'm leaving to the UK for about 3 weeks, and am looking to get a prepaid sim once I'm there so I can use my phone.

Can anyone suggest which carrier I should go with once I'm there? My phone is unlocked and does 850/1800/1900, so I assume I'll need a carrier with good 1800 service. I would also like one that offers free incoming calls.

thanks for any help.

the one thing great about the UK is that incoming calls are all free, you only pay for outgoing calls.

not sure who are the best, but in no particular order, the big carriers over there include orange, vodafone, virgin, tmobile, & there's one more i've seen called "phones4u", but it would be like a glentel and just sell multiple carrier's stuff. pick your poison...
