    this may appear like spam from the title, but it isn't.

    i've basically got a handful of pay as you go sim cards, and i don't need them so thought i'd offer them to anybody that wants one.

    i'd have thoguht that they might be useful for international students especially, coming here to start uni in the next few weeks, whether it's a permenant solution or a temporary one until they get a contract up and running or something. they're brand new, in their packs with stickers on etc and i'll send them out to anyone who wants one for free as a gesture of good will. they tend to cost between £5 and £10 in the shops, so it could save you enough to buy a few pints.

    i'm not entirely sure if they come with any credit when you register them, but they've got some good deals; the o2 ones will provide you each month with either 300 free texts or 100 free minutes if you top up £10 per month. the virgin ones i have entitle you to cheap texts, a bundle of 400 for £10.

    i've got around 10 in total so it's first come first served i guess.

    put them in an addressed envelope, affix a first class stamp or stamps of a greater value if needed, then post them.

    how does this work?

    when you buy a new phone, does it come with a sim card - or do you have to pay extra for it?

    i might be interested...

    you can buy phones in 3 ways; on their own as a single piece of electronics without a sim card; with a pay as you go sim card meaning that you can top it up with vouchers and spend as much as you want on calls; or with a conract sim card which usually means that you have to pay a certain amount per month for a year at least.

    I got tonnes of O2 ones, I plan to give them to my new found friends at uni so I can contact them for cheap . O2 is great, the 300 free text a month almost seems like it never runs out! I've had 10p for like 3 weeks now and I'm still sending texts like no ones business

    I'd be interested to get a sim card if you're still giving them away?

    You'll need an unbranded, unlocked phone unless you purchased your mobile SIM-free.

    SIM-free mobiles cost up to twice the price of a PAYG mobile seeing as with PAYG you're tied down to the mobile operator - e.g. Orange.

    Sticking an O2 SIM into an Orange mobile phone will not work.

    You'll have to unlock it (which will invalidate your warranty) or have a compatible mobile.
