Are you sure you are asking the correct question? A sim card doesn't have advantages or disadvantages, you get them free from your network. Do you mean which network should you go with?

Then get Skype/Viber/Whatapp.

It's free if you can connect to Wifi (which you will be able to do if you are at university in England).

But to answer your question, you are asking about what we refer to as a contract or data plan.

There are loads. We can't possibly list you them. It depends what phone you have, what your budget is, your data/minutes/texting needs.
