i can buy a three sim card on ebay with 30 pounds of credit. I assume i can pop that into my unlocked phone and use it right when i land in the uk.

DO I NEED a uk credit card, or a us credit card is ok (I am a US resident)

Can i top up these sims with purchase from a us credit card while in the uk?

This is all very confusing to me. It seems so complicated.

Thanks for the guidance.
Before you buy a new phone, find out how to unlock the one you have. Just call AT&T. They should tell you how.

Once you've done that, you can pop in a UK SIM.
