Personal spending habits
Telephone charges were more expensive not because I called home often, but because they charge you local calls and supposedly "toll-free" calls. And travel is more expensive because so many different countries and cultures are so close by.

I was very surprised at how expensive it was to transfer money internationally from bank to bank. I would suggest putting whatever money you need into an account that is accessible by ATM, then take the cash out and deposit it into a British account that way.

If you need the phone for an 0800 or 0500 toll free number use a pay phone if in student accomadation because the student call phones charge for everything exept callsto other students in university housing on campus calls, like library or your department and emergency assistance if you need this for fire, police or ambulance, dial 999, If on a student phone dial an extra 9.
