cell phones

What 's the latest thought on getting/using a simple cell phone in the UK? I don't want to be stuck carrying converters, so wondered if you can still buy a cheap phone at the airport/anyone know what's available? Annette, Arkansas

I asked about this last summer and concluded that it could be done, but then decided to get an iPhone instead. So, yes, I think you can do it. I didn't get far enough into my research to determine what would be the best company. You might post on the TripAdvisor forum where there are locals who respond. They could likely give very good advice.

BTW, anyone going the iphone route needs to remember to turn off the data flow. I didn't get caught by the huge fees, but I sure have heard the horror stories.
