As it happens, I think that's what I'm going to do. A friend of mine has
an old unlocked Android phone so I'll give it a shot. Otherwise, the
comments from Ron and Alex sound promising enough. Thanks for those guys :)

I just ordered some Three SIMs. The form didn't work, so I kept trying
every few minutes and it then said I've hit the maximum order level, so
I may well get loads of Three SIMs through the post if anybody wants any ;)

It does look like they no longer have a 2G backup network, which could
be an issue elsewhere, though I always use wifi at home.


Based on what I've read, I'm confident that 3G will work most places
I'll need it, I just need to make sure the telephone signal is strong
enough as that is the main historic issue the Three network.

Thanks guys.
