    Hi everyone. I'm a newbie to the HTC Flyer (32gb, 3G + Wifi): I've had it for only a week, and love it (with Honeycomb update, etc.). I live in Ireland and have no need to add a SIM card here, because of regular WiFi access. But I'm visiting London for a few days soon and should like to use 3G mobile internet with the Flyer while I'm there.

    Can any Flyer users please recommend a pay-as-you-go type of SIM card that will work well with the Flyer in London but not commit me to paying much (since I'll only be in the UK for only a few days)? Or one that I can top up on later visits to the UK? I visit maybe 3 times per year.

    If you go into any large Tesco store with a phones department you'll get any type of SIM you want usually for 99p, (they should also be able to advise you on suitability for your device). But why not just use the free WiFi Hotspots that abound now? McDonalds, Starbucks and all kinds of other coffee shops have free WiFi, even Tesco supermarkets now have it as well.

    Edit: If you buy one in Ireland (South) you'll get stuck with Roaming charges.
