Thereís a vending machine in the baggage hall containing any number of SIM cards and deals. Iíve never used one - I just noticed it on Thu when waking through.

Iím sure those are the ones that cost like £50 for what you can get on the high street for a £10 topup or less.

I often pick up the SIM card from 3 from the vending machines in T3 or T5. They allow usage across the EU (for now) and connection is fairly good. Validity of the packages is 30 days.

You can always have a look at Smith's or there's the sim local store or as above look for the vending machine. Also see this thread in the technology forum for some reports on the different offerings/deals:
