pre-paid disposable phone

by jerry8888

I am traveling from USA to Birmingham, England and I would like to have a mobile phone to use while there. Does anyone know if I can purchase a pre-paid disposable phone at the Birmingham airport to use for local calls while in the UK? If not can I rent one at the airport or in one of the towns? Details appreciated.

RE: pre-paid disposable phone

by PhotoJim

You can get them easily. They're not disposable; you can keep it for a future trip or sell it on eBay.

There are a lot of providers there. I chose O2 because I could geta SIM card on eBay (I already had a multiband GSM phone that will work there) and it works in Canada so I could test it and get it topped up before I go.

It's usually easier and cheaper to buy there, though, at least if you don't buy at the airport.

If you're on Cingular or T-Mobile USA you might be able to use your phone. Do some googling.

http://www.prepaidgsm.net will help you to choose the best provider for you.

Travel Tips for Birmingham

Walking from the Town Hall towards Broad Street

by Galahad

Continue walking across Victoria Square and into what appears to be the building to the left of the Central Library. Continue on in the same direction for 2/3 minutes in front of Birmingham Repertory Theatre and across an area called Centenary Square and into the ICC building. Once inside during the daytime you can look inside the celebrated Symphony Hall, home of the CBSO, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Twice a month, starting in November 2000, there are guided tours around Symphony Hall. Continuing on in the same direction through the ICC building and out into the canal area. We went on into the area around Brindley Place on the opposite side of the canal. Going on a boat trip from Brindley Place around Sherbourne Street Wharf, Cambrian Wharf and Gas Street Basin. From the boat we could see the balcony of the pub (called The Malt House) where President Clinton had his famous pint and pie and photo during the G7 meeting when it was held in Birmingham in 1998.

Ward End House & Park

by kayleigh06

Ward End house is a house packed full of histroy. I always used to think it was the white house when I was younger haha! The house was owned by Bankers in the 18th century but was then sold to Birminghams land corporation. It then become the park as we all know it today.

Ward End Park is a great place for people to go and just walk around or to go fishing in the pond there. There is a childrens play area in good park area for the adults to sit down in.

There is also caged Tennis courts if you prefer to play tennis or if your children would enjoy playin tennis.

Fish Market

by Galahad

Almost opposite New Street Railway Station and the new Debenhams (part of the new Bull Ring) is the retail Fish Market. As you wander between the various stalls you can wonder at the variety of fish available for sale. If you look closely you can begin to spot those traders that have excellent quality and those that are aiming to be the cheapest in the market. When we visited in Oct 2003 we found some excellent "wild" Sea Bass (sadly most is farmed now), which we had steamed for tea.

Good Chinese Food...

by Lyndra about Mr Wong's Restaurant

Mr Wong's is well hidden not far from Leonard Street and the College of Food in Birmingham. It is set back slightly from the main road and you are welcomed by some lovely Chinese gates. The staff are very welcoming and more often than not there is a pianist playing show tunes in the background (corny or amusing depending on your like or dislike of Judy Garland!!).
Usual range of Chinese meals on the menu, all served piping hot, well flavoured and presented beautifully. Personal favourite is the Satay Chicken but have tried many dishes on the menu and have enjoyed all equally.
Small wine list and variety of beers are served, range of Chinese teas available also.
Lovely atmosphere and good food make this a restaurant to try for a pleasant night out!
