The Mobiles of Scotland
It may be more cost effective to travellers heading to the UK to keep in touch with folks back home to purchase a cell phone in the UK. You can pick up a good phone with the 'pay as you go' option at a reasonable price - Carphone Warehouse has them starting at 6.95 UK - and may save you paying roaming charges overseas which can really add up. Visit http://www.carphonewarehouse.com/pay-as-you-go/deal-finder to get an idea of phone types, providers, and pay options.
