Popping over to England from the Netherlands for a few days this week. Last time I went to England I was intrigued by a vending machine (!!) with prepaid sim cards, but just used my T-Mobile iPhone for voice and data and sucked up the roaming fees.
This time I'm wondering if I should grab a cheapie prepaid sim so I can cut down on costs. What are the logistics/drawbacks? I'm aware that iPhones are 'locked', but don't know what 'locked' means, and I'm not committed enough to jailbreak my phone. Being able to use data is obviously a bonus, but I'd mostly just like to use voice and text.
