Hello, 

We are from the US and had a few questions :

- looking to get a sim only pre-paid plan (20 GB plan for GBP 27)

- looks like they need to do a credit check. Why would you do a credit check for a pre-paid plan? And hw would Americans have any credit history in the UK? Or do they make an exception for people who are not UK residents?

Thank you.

You wouldn't be able to open up a sim only or contract as a visitor to the Uk you wouldn't pass a credit check.

 

You would need to look at Payg known as Pay as you go.

 

No credit checks are needed for these. 

 

You have Big Value Bundles or Payg1 to choose from.

 

Vodafone /pay-as-you-go-plans

 

 

A Vodafone Highstreet Store can sort you out.

 

Also if.your wanting to use your own phone then it would need to be unlocked to all network's and work with Vodafones Frequencies and bands.

Current Phone > Samsung Note 9 _512Gb > Model: SM-N960 Hybrid-Duos.

Hi @OhioTraveler 

 

I know you have marked this as solved.  However, I notice you have posted on the mobile broadband board and are looking for a data plan.

 

If you are looking for a data plan and need a data device to use with a laptop, you will be needing a dongle or Mobile WiFi device and the link with the PAYG data tariffs is here:  Vodafone PAYG Mobile Broadband

Thank you, Anns. I think it will be handy to also have a local phone number, which is why i decided against just the dongle. Appreciate the response.
