how can I activate my US phone when I visit in the fall?

My wife and I are visiting England this fall.  I have an unlocked phone that I have used in other countries through a temporary activation while there.  How can I do this when we arrive in England?

Thanks for the information.

So EE has a shop or kiosk at the airport? Both of them?

@vballref  you have options.

 

You can activate roaming and international calling on your US mobile phone account before you come to the UK and continue to use your current phone and current SIM here. Your current SIM provider might offer you an international add on.

 

You could buy a UK pay as you go SIM card which you could use in your unlocked phone while you are in the UK. You can buy at an airport or in a supermarket or in a phone shop here. You buy with a pack for say £10 which you could top up with your credit card. Of course you will be given a UK number with this PAYG SIM.
