SIM card
I was planning on buying a second-hand simless phone. I heard that in Italy all phone are unlocked from the get go (unlike in the UK) and that these phones were generally a lot cheaper (I am on a tight budget). In short I wanted to know if I bought a phone from one of these countries and got it shipped to the UK, could I put my current SIM in and the phone work as normal?

    Global sim cards allow you to roam across a number of different countries/ different networks, with a single sim card. However, this also depends on your provider/ tariffs and probably you will pay roaming charges.

    We don't know if it will work or not. We would need details of the UK SIM, including service provider and plan, as well as most details about the phone, including its 'lock' status. Even with that info, it will still probably be a guess.

    The only authoritative source will be the support group of your service provider.
