Re: O2 sim card

by leics

Do you mean you got a plastic pay-as-you-go card to use O2, or a sim card? A sim card actually goes into your phone....just replace your own sim card with it (as long as your phone will work in the UK).

To add credit to your phone you use the plastic credit-card sized O2 card. If you have not got one, just go into a supermarket or newsagents and ask for an O2 top-up card. This card is linked with your phone number, so you first need to register it by following instructions included with its leaflet.

The you give it to the cashier in supermarkets/newsagents etc and ask them to 'top up' your credit. This is usually in multiples of 5GBP. They will take your oney and 'swipe' the card: your phone is credited with the cash immediately.

I'm not sure about what is the cheapest you have an O2 card you may as well use it.

You can compare UK pay-as-you-go tariffs here:

as u will be in UK for limited days only..would suggest that you buy the local sim (like vecton) they can be boought free of cost but u need to add some top up money to them ..min is 5 GBP ...but thru this u can make calls all over the world for around 3p/min during weekdays and 1 p/min on weekends..also the sms cost is really cheap.. i always carry one in UK...

Travel Tips for London

Lovely London Doubledeckers

by goglobe

Red doubledeckers fill the streets of London, now with those newer models with driver-conductor only. But I like those traditional Routemasters with open tail ends where I can just hop on and off while the bus is not in motion. That's a typical London feel. Don't let these old beauties retire please, London!

go tO Carneby, picadilly,...

go tO Carneby, picadilly, Trafalgar square, Charing crossroads,...
But especially Carneby! The shops, the diversity of shops.
I liked Lush life a lot and this shop where you can buy all kinds of beads.

Beautiful architecture in Trafalgar Square

by Elodie_Caroline

I love old Architecture, so I photographed this lovely old beige building just opposite Trafalgar Square. It's actually on the corner of Cumberland road; if you follow this road down, it takes you on to The Victoria Embankment, where you will find the London Eye, The old offices of Scotland Yard, war monuments to the RAF and Royal Navy. Further on down, you will find Big Ben and The Houses of Parliament.
The other pictures with this tip are of various buildings on Trafalgar Square at night time.

One of the attractions in the Tower of London are the Yeoman Warders, usually called Beefeaters. Once a guardian force to take care of prisoners and guard the crown jewels, they are, today, a sort of guide or public relations, always available to a smile or the mandatory picture.

To p or not to p, "where" is the question!

by irisbe

In England you can easily find public toilets.
I didn’t check whether they were clean or not, but at least they exists and it might be a good idea to prevent people from “wild-peeing”.
In St. James’s Park my eye was caught by this sign on the picture and it is funny that in Winter time you are allowed to use the toilet hours earlier then in Spring or Summer. I wonder why is that?
