Sign up for GiffGaff mobile - a mobile network provider who combine many of the benefits of Pay As You Go with many of the benefits of contracts (they use 'goodybags' instead of contracts, which are monthly allowances and can be changed or stopped each month); they use the O2 network for coverage. Note that support is mostly through their online user community, rather than their own staff; the whole setup is likely to suit more technically minded users more than others. If you use this link, sign up and activate, you'll get 5 free credit, as will I! (There are plenty of other ways to sign up if you'd prefer.)
