A couple family friends will be visiting London in a few months, and as I'm their go-to for tech support I've been asked to figure out how to get them cell phones while they're there.
So instead of betraying my ignorance I'm counting on the TB forums to bail me out <grin>. For two weeks in London, what's the best way to get cell phones with not-too-many minutes on them? I think they're planning on being apart for a couple days mid-trip, and will probably use them to coordinate their reunion. They're both on Verizon in the US, so their phones aren't transferrable - they'll need new phones, sim cards, the whole lot. Is rental a good idea? Or are pay-as-you-go phones cheap and plentiful enough that an outright purchase is the better option?
