My Mobile World Congress will be brought to you by the letter T. For Truphone.

I’m delighted to say that this year I’ll be ‘connected’ in Barcelona by Truphone. They’ve sent me a Galaxy SIII handset containing a super-hot Truphone sim to use for the week. My instructions are to check it out, try it out, kick the tyres and see how I get on. I readily accepted.

I’m particular enamoured with the possibility of actually swapping all my telecoms to Truphone and doing away with a traditional terrestrial operator service agreements. I haven’t yet done this but I am not far away. I really like the idea of being able to use the best provider in a particular area (thanks to Truphone roaming between networks as necessary) rather than having to use a specific operator.

I’ll be writing more about Truphone next week.

If you’d like to check them out in Barcelona and haven’t yet got a SIM, I’ve got a quick tip for you. Check the airline in-air shop. You can usually buy a Truphone SIM on most British Airways flights! Otherwise, order online and you’ll get a SIM sent next day.

Maybe I am missing something but I checked a couple of countries on the Truphone website and I’m sure O2 provide more competitive rates.
