I am anxiously awaiting your review of the G6 range of Motorola mobile phones. Hope it will be available soon. I buy nothing until you have pronounced. Many thanks for a great site.
Thank you! We’ll have something up about the Moto G6 very soon 🙂
I wondered if you could help me I purchased an iPhone 6s directly from apple.co.uk last year I’m wondering if I can use a Sim card I purchase in Japan when I go there next year.
I know the phone is unlocked but I don’t know if it internationaly unlocked can you help? thank you
Yes – the great news is your iPhone is also unlocked for use internationally. You can use it abroad in other countries with a different SIM card without issue.
Thank you this has really helped this will save me a fortune when I have to just open Google maps
Because data costs are insane for visiting Japan.. 🙂

Thank you for your very informative & interesting site.
I have recently had to leave Tesco Mobile as the service this year has deteriorated a lot (no signal for 3 months of the year!) and have switched to Asda pay as you go as their tariff is really good, but was disappointed to find out I cannot send short code texts. I now find that a lot of networks don’t allow you to do this. Can you recommend a reasonably priced network that does allow you to send 5 digit texts?
Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, I couldn’t give you any specific advice about five-digit short codes (I’m not sure whether there’s a list of which mobile networks support this functionality?). I suppose my first suggestion is to see if you can find an alternative number (e.g. is there a regular landline or mobile number you could text instead?). If not, it might be the case you’ll need to go with one of the major networks who’ll probably be more likely to support this functionality.
