    Haven't seen many threads though about UK users on a PAYG o2 sim.
    Does it work? What are the correct APN settings, and what's the cheapest option for buying an o2 PAYG sim?

    thanks in advance
    I think I read that you can put a PAYG in the Pre, I will certainly try on my pre later on when I get home.
    You will be able to get an 02 sim from most phone shops (5-10), you might have to top it up though. How close a shop is to you depends on where you are in the UK.

    You can get SIMs for 99p at 99p Stores (it's a chain of stores, which seem to be relatively common in the UK); they have posters up advertising them at the one near where I live.

    I will be getting my Palm Pre from Expansys HK and was told that I will be getting the UK unlocked set.

    From the above discussion, looks like it is possible to activate the Pre & have the list of paid & free apps showing in the App Catalogue by using a prepaid Sim. Anyone done it?

    Is this the correct website to get a new prepaid sim?
    O2 | Free Sim | Choose Your Free Pay and Go Sim Online

    Also for activation, does it have to be done in UK (physically) or can I activate it overseas (Singapore)?
