Sim Only Plan while Studying Abroad

Hi there, I'm studying abroad at the University of Exeter from the United States (specifically Iowa State University, if that helps) and want to get a micro-sim for my phone while I am in the UK. I will arrive in the UK on January 12th, 2017 (leave on June 3rd, 2017) and wish to get my sim for that period. I noticed you can get a SIM Only plan with 2500 calling minutes, unlimited texts, and 2GB x2 for only 12£ / month and would like to get that plan. My question is can I order the sim now and have it sent to me over here in The States and start paying for it when I arrive in the UK in January? If not, what should I do about getting this deal for when I study abroad?

Re: Sim Only Plan while Studying Abroad

Hi tjfenton,

 

Virgin Mobile UK will not post a SIM abroad. Also all Pay Monthly contracts are subject to a credit check and with no UK credit history that might be a problem.

You may have to consider a Pay As You Go SIM once you arrive in the UK.
