    Firstly, if you're going to some redneck country hick place like Karachi, I would strongly advise you leave the iPhone at home and take a cheap mobile otherwise you're liable to get mugged for the premium handset if you venture into the wrong places at the wrong times. Several people have had this done to them and that was for not-so-premium Nokia feature phones.

    Secondly, O2 only offer a PAYG data roaming bundle for Europe, it doesn't cover the rest of the world. However, as long as you have a wifi connection, you will be able to upload pics, use Facebook and do all the usual browsing stuff for free.

    If you absolutely still need roaming data, Vodafone offer a PAYG roaming package that costs £5 per day for 25MB. Best bet though is stick with wifi as per above.

    If not, buy a local sim when you get to Pakistan, the data charges on PAYG there are much cheaper than here. For example, Zong Mobile (part of China Telecom) will give you 2GB per month for about £1.50 or 4GB for about 3 quid on top of your usual PAYG call/text charges.
