Yes, a 3G USIM will work in a non 3G phone, can you get them on PAYG?

Mine cost me ?5 from my local orange shop (York).

Careful buying '3' 3g PAYG sims though - these will NOT work in a non 3g device as 3 have specifically disabled this - may work for a short period but unless it 'phones home' onto the 3g network regularly it will go dead on GSM within a week. 3 do this as they have no GSM network and pay o2 for use of theirs - when they were v.cheap for voice calls people were buying a 3 payg handset and putting the sim into a non 3g handset to use for voice calls and actually costing 3 money.
