Hi Folks, I'm going to be traveling through the UK for about 5 weeks starting June 14th. And I'm not sure what to do about my phone. I am an avid Instagram user and would like to be able to keep using it while I'm away but I also don't want to have to pay crazy roaming fees to keep my phone active while away. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas on how to deal with the situation? Similar experiences? Best options?

Assuming your phone supports the UK network frequencies, unlock it (if it isn't already unlocked) and buy a local SIM and service when you arrive there.

I have an Alcatel One Touch Idol X+, I can do some more research though to make sure it'll work. Thanks!

Hey Zoh!
Thanks for contributing to the thread however, be mindful of the dates of the posts. For example, this one is over a year old! I'm sure OP already did her trip to the UK :)
