In another thread I read

1. Bring a cell phone “unblocked” and buy a Thai SIM card for it on arrival, they’re cheap (apprx. 250 baht) and include some credit already on them

2. e.g. - International calls to UK are about 8baht per min…

Sorry to doubt the author, no offence, just looking for comformation that int.calls to the UK are really just 8baht per min, seems incredibly cheap!!

Thanks for the help!

Andy, I have heard and read the same thing a few times so I thing what you have heard is true, just make sure your phone is un-blocked to run on any network

Talking about mobile phones,this info may be of some use to some of us...

As of September 01 2006, all mobile phone numbers have been changed to ten digit numbers. Those that begin with 01, 06 or 09, now begins to 081, 086, or 089 respectively. Old numbers will continue to be connected through to December 1, to allow people time to adjust to the changes. For those who have local mobile phones, you will need to visit your operator’s office to have your SIM card updated. All numbers beginning with 02 (Bangkok land lines) will remain the same as will all upcountry land lines.
