Using Canadian mobile phone while on vacation in UK?

I'm travelling to the UK September 17 - October 2 from Canada and I'd like to bring my (unlocked) phone to use while I'm there.

Mostly I need data (at least 1gb) and to make a few texts back to Canada. Is this a possibility? What plan would be best for this? I was thinking of the Pay as you Go, SIM only - looks like for £10 I would get 1gb of data (as a bonus) and then £10 to use towards extra data and international texts.

Any advice or other options would be great. THANKS!

If you are just visiting the PAYG will be your only option available.

As long as your phone is compatible with UK frequencies there should be no problem.

I would check out the offerings on all networks to see which fit the bill best. (Virgin does not have 4G)

PAYG SIMS are easy to pick up from the likes of Newsagents and Supermarkets, just make sure you have the correct size for your phone.

Your best option would be the "3" network , 3p a minute calls (all of the U.K. Covered) 2p texts and 1p per mob of date, you can get a package as that turns out cheaper, don't forget free wifi hotspots and Whatsapp or Skype
