Best UK PAYG for a US traveller?

Hi

My sis lives in the US and pops over every so often. She's after a PAYG sim for when she's over here. It'll mainly be used for making a few calls and navigation, so data cost would probably be the priority. Also, I've heard that some sims cancel all the credit if it's not used in 6 months. This wouldn't be so much of a problem, but she would like to keep the same number if she didn't use it within that time.

Your advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I live in France yet still use GiffGaff from the UK.
There are various options including data ones but I just use standard topup.

Price per minute from the UK to mobile phones in:

China 2p
India 2p
Ireland 5p
USA 2p
Poland 5p
Italy 7p
