KnowRoaming on test – Cut your roaming costs dramatically

Picture the scene. You’re about to go abroad. You’ve got your passport, you’ve booked the hotel and the flight. What about your phone? Unless you’re lucky enough to be using a network like Three and going to one of the countries in their Feel At Home plan,

Swapping your phone? Got a SIM problem? Get an adaptor

Some clever sausage somewhere decided at some point that the standard SIM cards were just too big. Despite some phones still being massive (phablets etc), we’re seeing the teeny-tiny nano SIM slot on some phones, with the slightly-larger micro SIM now being an almost-standard. However, there’s still

£1 for £10 credit on Delightmobile

Sometimes it may be best not to ask how. When Derren Brown performs those crazy tricks and you can’t work how, you end up sitting back and just enjoying. Just like this PAYG sim card from Delightmobile with £10 credit preloaded. What you spend your credit on

New hassle-free data SIM providers rock up

Data. You want it. You want it right now. You want big, fat, sweaty piles of data and as quick as possible. You filthy, filthy monkey. You disgust me. How’s 99p per GB sound? That sound good? Huh? Got yourself a cheap enough deal there? How about

Unlocking your phone for free. Why bother?

If you’ve followed my posts recently then you may have noticed a bit of a theme developing. I’ve written about switching from a contract to a monthly rolling SIM-only plan (which could see your monthly charge go from around £40 to £12) and I’ve had a look

Silence is golden.. sometimes

I’m out in America at the moment. I’ll admit that I’m very lucky, and have had the opportunity to visit a good many times now. I usually plan things out and ensure that my phone, which is unlocked, has a US SIM card so that I can

Create your own micro SIM. Just hack it with scissors.

I’m old school. I’ve got a standard sized SIM card. A card of this size has been around for quite some time and over the years my Orange SIM has prostituted itself with so many handsets I’ve lost count. It’s only when I actually call Orange and

Deal – Acer Dual SIM Z110 £83.99

There is something appealing and somewhat geeky about a phone with two SIM cards in it. Having your work and your personal SIM cards in one phone is the main use for this sort of phone. When I tested one out a while back I used a

Do you fancy a cheap dual SIM Android phone?
