    Cheapest PAYG for texting UK from Abroad (Far East mainly)

    Hi all,

    We're off on our hols next month to Dubai, Thailand and Cambodia and want to find the cheapest PAYG sim to take that will allow us to send the cheapest texts to the UK.

    We don't need to make calls, just to odd text to let friends and family know where we are etc.

    I probably won't have to time to order a SIM from Voda, Orange, O2 etc so will probably need to get one off Ebay. Any pointers?

    Also, what about this ASDA SIM that is mentioned on here? Not heard of that before? Is that worth considering?

    Thanks and I like the suggestion!

    It's more in case people need to get in touch with us if there are any problems at home etc as we away for a month.

    I guess any old PAYG would probably do.

    if your phones unlocked then get a local PAYG sim wherever your on holiday

    Agreed. Normally the best thing to do.
    Hope you enjoy yourself :thumbsup:

    I'm not sure if this is still the case but O2 would simply treat one text sent from overseas as 3 or 4 regular UK mobile to UK mobile texts.
