does anyone know if an Oz sim card will work in a UK phone? I have a sony ericsson K810i phone on o2 in the UK and was looking to take this with me and buy a sim card in Australia. The phone also works in the UK when I put other network sim cards into it i.e. virgin. Do you think this will be the same in Oz or will I have to get it specially unblocked???
When I went to Oz, I just took my UK phone and used it. I don't think it's necessary to buy a local SIM card.
As long as your phones unlocked to all networks and is triband it'll work ok in oz..... i bought a prepay simm card online for oz which gives you an ozzy number to give everyone before you go plus it's cheaper to use while out there.
0044.co.uk.....save's you a fortune....plus you'll need it to keep in touch with everyone you meet while on ya travels.
Yeh, it sounds like you should be able to use it ok in Oz. The person in the mobile phone shop will check it out for you before you buy
Recommend you buy a vodafone SIM as you can buy the CAP bundles - all of which give you some international minutes to use to call home - I bought a $49 cap which lasted me the full month and gave me $230 of calls and texts and 20 mins to call home texts to Oz or the UK are the same prices 25c
Hope this helps
