First of all, I truly appreciate all the threads in this forum; very useful especially for me as I'll be leaving in 10 days for UK!
I saw quite a few threads about buying cell phones (as supposed to bringing your own cell phone there and try to get it unlocked, get a SIM card, etc.). I noticed on different UK mobile carriers' websites that they're selling pay-as-you-go phones at very low prices... just one thought came to my mind - are cell phones in UK unlocked? Can cell phones from UK work in Canada (I'm from Toronto). Here in Toronto, buying a decent cell phone (without any contracts) can be pretty pricey (not mentioning ancient relative to other countries in terms of technology), so is it worth it to purchase a cell phone from UK and bring it to here for use?
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
