    Hi

    My father in law is after a new "pay as you go" phone that will only be used in emergencies.

    In addition he's off to OZ / NZ for 6 weeks & wants to use it there for emergencies when travelling. What actions are req'd to allow this ?

    I've a company Mobile, so have no idea what to look for these days. Anyone got any advice on the best deals to meet the above criteria ?

    Thanks in advance guys

    Dave

    I would say the best idea is to buy a phone such as this one (not the latest but decent and reliable nonetheless) which is SIM free, i.e. the phone will not be locked to a specific network's SIM cards and buy a SIM card for PAYG use in the UK from Virgin Mobile. Then when he goes down under, buy a PAYG SIM for a local network, thus saving loads in roaming charges. Hope this helps ;)
