    I've just finished another round of ordering up all the free PAYG sims available from all the UK network operators, so I thought while my browser tabs have them open, I could share the list of order pages.

    I've done this a few times already to different addresses, I've found you can usually order to the same address 2 times and then if you wait about 6 months you can order another 2x. Maybe on some networks you can order more. Also lots of them send 2 or 3 sims out.

    Just use made up name and phone number but you need a valid email and valid real life address :p

    PS - not all the networks allow you to register the sim without topping up, sorry guys but I cannot remember which ones do and dont work, so I've just ordered them all again, I guess if this list is useful to people, then in a week or so when they all arrive again I'll update this thread with the ones that register (and accept a text/sms message) and those that dont (save some time)

    I know that at least half of them work, if not more, meaning you can load them into a phone and receive verification SMS to the phones number without having to buy some initial credit :) Last time I ordered some a few months ago I ended up with around 20 valid sims to use for PVAs :)

    I guess, if thats no good to you, then do one :p

    anyway here's the list

    https://payg.thephone.coop/order-a-sim/
    https://mobile.postoffice.co.uk/free-sim/
    http://www.lebara.co.uk/freesim

    this last one is a cool new network I just found, but to get the free siim you need to put in your credit/debit card info and accept the "1 month free trial", but so long as you cancel the free trial, this sim is supposed to provide 200 minutes/texts/200mb data FREE each month, so I am giving it a go :) Free data means free IP addresses to do the do :)
    --> http://uk.freedompop.com/ I think there might be a way to earn more data with this network too so im gonna inspestigate that a lot further :)


    Anyways thats it right there, a list of free PAYG sim providers to help with your PVA accounts (UK only!). I'll update etc and keep it useful, make notes about activation etc.

    :cheerlead

    Not sure what you mean, or how you personally would use these sim cards, but they are all fresh UK phone numbers that help make rock solid PVAs, real sim cards in real phones.

    All my accounts made using these are rock solid.

    On VectoneMobile and GTMobile you can also add up to three SIM cards with a single order.

    Vodafone and EE offer two.

    yep, on more than one of those sites you can add up to 3, and some send 2 - 4 anyway. Ive just some today and will have the rest in the next few days. I also dug up some old accounts and checked out which sims where still live.

    only problem I found is with Lebera sims, they seem to change your phone number after a period of inactivity :(

    Hello again.

    Mostly all the sims that are coming have arrived, and I have used any that work to make some new fresh accounts, so here is a results list/rundown/whatever...

    https://talkmobile.co.uk/order-payg-sim/ - no sim arrived yet or I lost the bugger :(
    https://freesim.vodafone.co.uk - - 2 sims - activates and registers
    http://store.virginmedia.com/virgin-...ou-go-sim.html - 1 sim - activates and registers
    https://www.three.co.uk/Support/Free_SIM/Order - no sim arrived yet (think I rinsed 3 too much and they might not send me any more lol. 3 sims activate and register no problems, and will remain live for ages I just checked a 2 year old sim that has only ever been used to receive activation sms and it still works!)
    http://shop.ee.co.uk/price-plans/free-sim - - 2 sims - activates and registers
    https://mobile.asda.com/orders/new - - 1 sim - activates and registers
    https://www.o2.co.uk/shop/sim-cards/pay-as-you-go/ - 1 sim - activates and registers
    https://www.giffgaff.com/orders/free-sim - 1 sim - wont activate? (havent tried the tip posted by CashMoneyMantra yet)
    https://www.tescomobile-freesim.co.uk/default.aspx - 1 sim - activates and registers
    http://www.lycamobile.co.uk/en/free-sim-request - 3 sims - activates and registers
    https://www.thepeoplesoperator.com/pay-as-you-go - 1 sim - Activates and registers
    http://www.vectonemobile.co.uk/pay-a...free-sim1.aspx - 2 sims - activates and registers - *105# to view sim number
    http://www.gtmobile.co.uk/en/free-sim-request - 2 sims - activates and registers - *132# to get sim number
    http://www.nowpayg.co.uk/free-sim/ - 1 sim - wont activate?
    https://payg.thephone.coop/order-a-sim/ - 1 sim - wont activate?
    https://mobile.postoffice.co.uk/free-sim/ - 1 sim - wont activate?
    http://www.lebara.co.uk/freesim - 1 sim - activates and registers (call 5588 to activate)

    So there you go, in total I think I got like 17 live sims from this round. A couple of years ago I'd have had as many as 30+ but still, 17 live is not bad for free, and remember to get your friends and family to take a batch at their addresses too and you'll be buzzin!

    :)

    PS - those couple of sims that didnt activate yet, I'll leave them sitting in a phone for a couple of hours because sometimes the sims can take a while before they go live in the phone. All the sims that activate all went live within 5 minutes of being put into an unlocked phone, but I could not be bothered to wait longer than 5 minutes so if they did not go live in five they went in the dead pile, but they might still activate if patience is an option :)

    Ah, I didn't realise you had replied! Giffgaff was the first one I tried and the SIM requires a top-up and user registration to activate (likely to stop antics like this and the legendary creditless drug dealer, hopefully other providers won't catch on).

    hi Guys :)

    Just to update,

    Lyca Mobile Sims will expire if not topped up. They are fine for registration and I think the first 3 - 4 weeks, but I have had to reverify a couple of accounts today regged with Lyca numbers and the sims are now dead, numbers dont work.

    So Lyca, great to register and confirm, get your accounts warmed up, but no good for long term stability, best to swap them out or setup another form of account verification if possible (like extra emails/super friends/etc)

    Thanks Mackay22, just bumping this as this is what I'm currently needing for Facebook account startups and I'm also in the UK.

    Is there any update to the above list to save me time ordering from them? I ordered one from GiffGaff and actually paid the £10.00 to register - live and learn I guess, as I'd have gone down the free route, had I known!
