    Coming to study in Warwick, and I'll be there for around 10 weeks till I leave. I was looking at the Natwest bank account, and they offer an Orange Camel pay as you go SIM card. They seem to give 240 free international mins on a 30 pound top up which seems pretty good. Is it also possible for me to use BBM/Internet (it's called BIS here?) with this plan? How long does it take to get activated?

    Any other plans I should be looking at?

    You're not getting anything from NatWest, go straight to Orange and they'll give you the same thing. International calls from a mobile aren't the best of ideas tbh, I'd read this first:

    And unless it says it gives you xxx data, you wont get free internet. Free minutes/texts are usually activated within minutes of you topping up.

    I'm not going to be calling all the time, as I can use Skype, but I'll still need to make international calls occasionally. So, is Camel the best plan for that? I'm still planning to use BBM to contact friends/family overseas, so much is the BIS service gonna cost?
