    I'm planning to buy a Samsung i7500 Galaxy when available in the UK. I'll probably buy an unlocked one on Ebay or similar. This is because I spend over half the year outside the UK, travelling. This is mostly in Europe and the USA but can be elsewhere.

    I'm therefore looking for a UK SIM-only deal for voice (light usage of perhaps 100 minutes per month), SMS (very few, perhaps 5 per month), and 3G data. A good deal on international roaming 3G data would be especially welcome.

    Any suggestions?

    After researching some more, I think I'll just stay with Orange, which I've been using up to now. There doesn't seem to be much difference between the main networks.

    For me data is key Tmobile and 3 offer the best data rates. (I tether my phone to my laptop)

    Crisp7,

    That's interesting; I didn't know they allowed tethering. I'll check them out.
