Mobile Plans

by mark711

Hi all,

I will be coming to Nottingham for about 10 months as an exchange student from Singapore. I'll be bringing my mobile over and am thinking of subscribing to the mobile plans over there. Can anyone tell me the cheapest mobile plan in UK which I can subscribe to? I'd probably use it for calling back home (from UK and when I travel to other parts of Europe), messaging and calling UK numbers. Thanks y'all!

Sorry, I don't know the first thing about the mobile system. However, I wonder if you know about Skype? Check it out on www.skype.com If you have access to a computer and your folks "back home" have a computer, then you'll be able to talk to them "for free".

Orange is definitely the cheapest for long distance calls www.orange.co.uk or www.orange.com

There's also msn, of course, if you & your family can both get online. You'll need to check out the cost of contracts and set them against how much you intend to actually use your phone. It may be that a 'pay-as-you-go' phone will be better for your needs than a contract. There are loads of phone shops, so you won't have a problem in sorting something out when you're here. Nottingham student union may also be able to advise you as to what other exchange students have done.

Thanks to all those who replied. Yup I'll be using Skype and MSN to keep in touch with my family and friends but I was thinking it would be good to have a phone to call and message in places where I do not get internet access. Will check out the calling plans in UK when I arrive. Thanks guys!

Travel Tips for Nottingham

Wicket...Stumps...Duck..??!!

by raquelitalarga

If you aren't from a Commonwealth country chances are you won't know anything about cricket! To tell you the truth lots of English people don't have a clue either...me included!!
Well a summer visit to Nottingham gives you a chance to watch a quintessentially English game at Trent Bridge.
It can last all day ...so wear suncream, or take an umbrella, bring a picnic, (and maybe a book)!

Crown Inn

by iwys

The Crown Inn, in Beeston was originally a sixteenth century cottage. Inside it, the confessional (the inn is in Church Street, behind the church) is one of the smallest and oldest serving bars in England. In 1830 the inn was purchased by a captain from the Queen's regiment, who named it the Crown. It is reputedly haunted by the ghost of a cavalier.

It's listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide, and it's my favourite pub in Beeston. They show live Sky Premiership football, which you may see either as a good or a bad thing, depending on whether or not you like pubs that show football.

Nottingham Castle

by CliffClaven

Don't expect Nottingham Castle to be some medieval fortress. The city's original castle was destroyed by the Roundheads during the Civil War in England. The next structure on the site burned down in the early 19th century. The present castle dates from the second half of the 19th century and houses Nottingham's municipal museum and art gallery. An hour is probably enough to spend inside, but then you can enjoy the peaceful gardens around the building.

Taller than Nelson's Column!

by raquelitalarga

A recent addition to Nottingham's skyline is the tallest freestanding artwork in Britain (unfortunately it's been built on a low lying part of the city so it has had little impact!) You can visit the Nottingham University Jubilee campus (buses 28,29,30) to get a close up look at the £800,000, 60 metre high sculpture. It was built by Ken Shuttleworth, the architect who designed the gherkin building in London, and was donated by an anonymous benefactor.
I personally think it's an ugly, boring missed opportunity (someone asked me what would it be when it was finished!)....but the modern campus is worth a visit! The site was once the Raleigh bike factory, a major Nottingham employer, but it's been transformed by imaginative, eco-friendly buildings and beautiful lakes.
