SIM Card Recommendations

I'm going to be in London for 10 days at the beginning of June. I'm planning on bringing my iphone with me and would like access to unlimited internet.

Does anybody have any recommendations on where to purchase sim cards?

Thanks!

Carphone warehouse. Shops all over. Also try EE (also shops but fewer) they are reputed to be good for Internet. Both have websites.

p.s. Is your iPhone unlocked?

Phones4U or Carphone Warehouse, they carry all the main networks and will be able to advise on which tariff would suit you.

You will not however get unlimited mobile internet especially on a pay-as-you go. A quick search suggests Three "Broadband - Pay As You Go + 12" offers the most download, 12 GB but it costs £70.

For heavy internet use you'll need to find a free wifi hotspot or pay for wifi access

I got unlimited internet with Giffgaff for £12 but if you are going at the beginning of June so I think it's a little bit late for a SIM card to make it to Vancouver. Sadly you can't get Giffgaff SIM cards from a store, only online.

How long does it take for the Giffgaff SIM to ship? and is it compatible with iphone? I don't see iphones listed on their site.

I don't know how long it takes to Canada but it took around 3 weeks to Chile.

You have to select a nano card for iPhone 5-5s. I got one for mine.
