    Hello,
    I'm traveling to London for a week for a work conference. I need to contact other coworkers who are going but staying in different hotels throughout the trip. My boyfriend is also joining me later in the week, and I would like to text him when he arrives to coordinate finding me and getting to the hotel. What is the cheapest way to use my phone to do these minimal things???

    Being from the UK I would suggest picking up a Pay as you Go sim card from a carrier called Three. They offer the best rates for texting, calls and data. You can walk into any Three store and pick up a sim card. Most of the time they are free.

    You will need to make sure your phone is unlocked to all carriers though.

    You can use your phone just with wifi and text/call through Whatsapp, Viber or similar apps. London is full of free WiFi hotspots and lots of them are based on The Cloud. Create a free account and you'll find it in cafes and restaurants all over the city.

    Prepaid SIM cards are very cheap and you can buy 500Mb for 5£ or even less. That's the thing I use to do when I go there.

    Also to follow on from my previous message you can go into a Carphone Warehouse store and buy a Pay as you Go phone, the website link is quoted below. For their cheapest phone it's free, but you need to buy a top up (credit) of £15

    Hey Tall guy! Sorry, I missed your previous post. You posted while I was writing mine at the same time and I noticed just now.

    Haha - I start responding to a post and get distracted by my actual working job so it takes me a while to write something
