    Ive been looking at burner app but it only gives US numbers. I looked at some UK equivlaent called swytch but that was really expensive like 5 pound a month as well as paying for texts.

    So far I havent found anything that beats buying a one pound sim and some credit as you can get unlimited texts for 5 quid so 6 pound overall. I hate being wasteful though and think I'd feel bad just buying it only to throw it away not long after.

    I prefer the idea of a virtual solution but haven't found anything to compare price wise. Textmagic is another Uk offering but again it is £4 for only 100 texts.

    Google voice is only US numbers.

    Any other ideas?

    I know a service which offers UK numbers for $3/mo but only for receiving SMS. If you're interested, PM me
