Public Phones

Wherever you are in the UK, you will never be too far away from a public payphone. Most of the payphones can offer not only simple telephoning service but also email, mobile phone text messaging, and internet services.

Most payphones accept 10p, 20p, 50p & £1 coins. Some payphones accept £2 coins. Calls are charged to the nearest 10p. Only unused coins are returned so you should avoid using 50p, £1 or £2 coins for short calls. Some payphones accept 50c, 1 Euro and 2 Euro coins.

Mobile phones

Most dual and tri band mobile phones that have GSM 900 or 1800, will work via roaming in Britain. Check with your mobile phone provider before you leave that the 'roaming' function is activated on your phone.

You can buy a British prepay mobile phone including phone number and SIM card for as little as £10 in many high street shops. You do not need to provide identification to purchase a prepay phone, but you will need to provide identification and proof of address in Britain to set up a mobile phone contract.

Here is a list of the major mobile phone networks in the UK:
