Can anyone recommend a dealer in the UK that will sell a SIM that will work in a D2G (Verizon). I will be landing at Heathrow and spending most of my time in London and the Canterbury area.

Thanks in advance.
 
Ebay. That pretty much covers it. You just need to be smart and check the buyer ratings. If they have over 5,000 ratings, they are probably legit.

Captain Canuck, just visit any mobile phone store. They should have various SIM offers from local carriers (like Orange, O2, T-Mobile, and the likes).
 
You do have the SIM slot unlocked don't you? It is a standard practice for verizon to keep global phones SIM locked to the included Verizon GSM sim. Unlocking have to request an unlock after your account has been in good standing for somewhere between 60-90 days.

I wouldn't order anything that I might be needing in less than 2 weeks time off eBay.

But that's just me.

And what's the whole deal with buying SIM cards off eBay? For most European carriers, you need to buy an activated SIM card, not something off eBay that can be activated later by visiting a website.
 
Right, and you won't have any trouble getting a SIM in the UK! All high streets will have most/all of the carrier stores: O2/T-Mobile/Orange/3/Vodafone (the main carriers, with Orange and T-mobile now working together). Then the stores that sell service on the carriers rebranded: phone stores such as phones4less, carfonewarehouse, supermarkets such as Sainsbury's and Tescos etc. At heathrow, there are vending machines with SIMs. I use Talkmobile, T-mobile, Orange and Vodafone, but all except possibly 3 should work

And as others noted, make sure your phone has been unlocked by Verizon.
