Roaming in Ireland and the cost of receiving calls
I live in Ireland and travel to the UK frequently. I need a UK mobile number that I can receive calls with back home in Ireland that has either low or no charges for receiving incoming (roaming) calls. I'm thinking of getting a Virgin PAYG phone and I would like to confirm what charges apply for receiving incoming (roaming calls). The information available suggests that these are free, but I want to confirm this in advance before proceeding.

3 UK will only work on 3 Ireland as part of their "3 Like Home" tariffs if you have PAYG with one of their packages which start from around £20 a month. If you just use straightforward PAYG (the £1 SIM card) and just top up are normal, you don't get the benefit of 3 Like Home. They are not clear about this and I only found out by chance when I queried it in a 3 store.
