I am going to be traveling to the UK this summer, and I am planning on buying a mobile phone and getting a SIM card before we leave, just to save on time, and stress. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestion on which phone to buy, and from where? (Online, shipping to US preferably) I'd like to be able to use GPS while driving. I'm planning on getting a Giffgaff SIM and one of their goodiebag plans, (thanks to another user on this forum!) so the phone needs to be data capable, preferably 3G or higher.
Also, we are planing to take the Eurostar to Paris, spend a night there, and head back to London the next day. Will the phone services I. England work in Paris? If it does, will the rates be the same or higher? (In general, I know all providers are different)
