microsim or dongle?

Hi. i will be down in London for a month and need to stay in touch with my kids at home via skype. Do you think i should unlock my iphone 4 and get a phone package..i can then use it as a wifi hotspot to connect with my laptop. Or should i get PAYG with a dongle package for my laptop instead? Am I making sense? Which would be cheaper? pls help

Cheapest option would be to buy nothing and use your laptop at one of the many free wi-fi hotspots around London.

The most this is likely to cost you is a cup of coffee each time.

Doesn't your hotel have wi-fi ?

Use Skype on your iPhone 4, as already mentioned it would be free on wifi !
