When I was in KTM I had to buy a cheapo PAYG mobile with about £10 worth of air time. I did so because I wasn't sure if mine was going to work. I filled in a few scant registration details and only used about half the air time.

As the sim was a local one it's not working in the UK so I'm just wondering what to do with the phone. As it's registered to me I don't want it falling into the wrong hands. On the other hand I'm never going to use it again.

What do you mean by this? What do you think could happen? (genuinely interested, not being facetious).

In reply to Fickalli: Well I was thinking if it fell into the wrong(maybe criminal) hands it's effectively got my name on it?

I think you look for problems. You have just come back from one of the poorest countries in the world where for a lot of people struggle beyond belief just to exist with little complaint.
Get a fecking grip man!

But that is surely only a problem if you are involved in criminal activities yourself. If not, and something did happen (which is unlikely), then when questioned by the police, should it come to that, then you explain what happened, where you were etc etc and there is no longer a problem. I think if a criminal prosecution hinged on the fact that the suspect had a phone in your name from Nepal (or that you were the suspect for that reason) then the CPS have bigger issues!

Maybe I'm too blasé about this stuff but I'd just throw it away (or envirofone it to get some cash). Either that or keep it as a hill phone with a UK sim. I really can't see what the problem is here.

He doesn't look for problems; he simply wants to ensure that EVERYONE knows where he's going, where he is and where he's been.

Several years ago I flew out of a very poor country, where I too had to buy a cheap mobile, when I came leave it stil had credit. When I had checked in I gave the mobile to the first cleaner that I met. Seemed like a good thing to do.

In reply to David Best: The solution is in your hands. If you feel that way about what others post then do what I (and no doubt others) do and ignore them. The choice is yours.

I think you are right! Whilst I would quite take your brusque and nasty approach to this thread, all your points are pretty valid.

Get a uk payg sim and use it as a hill phone. We all buy phones in our name, and we all get rid of them after a while. Do you worry about uk landline phones you've bought in the past and no longer have. What if they have fallen into the wrong hands and are being used to mis sell ppi?
In reply to mypyrex: I'd just hang on to it as a burner for when you need re-up or put a hit out on someone.

In reply to nonymouse: Errr he called me a Dickhead , which is very diffent to pointing out he should get a life as I did. You are posting anonymousely, I am not , and my post was bought on by Mypyrexs continual posting tripe.He has made posts in the past which I have considered mysogenistic , racist and generaly attention seeking.
Yes , I was harsh, but this is UKC , home to bickering/slagging /general unpleasantness, oh and poor spelling /puntuation.
Really all I can say is ....whatever :)
