Yes but no. Yes, you can get the SIM card for free in shops such as Carphone Warehouse, but only as part of a deal where you buy some airtime credit, usually £10.

If you are genuinely never going to dial out (are you sure you'll never need to make a call) then you can buy SIM cards in most supermarkets for less than £1.

Do the £1 SIMs work like that? I was under the impression you had to top-up to activate (and you then got the £1 as additional credit.

I've used a £1 SIM to receive calls without putting credit on it. That was an Orange one (when they were still called that)
