Mobile phone vending machines in the UK

By Derek Sooman on
Folks in Manchester in the UK will have the chance to use the first UK vending machines selling mobile phones. Vodafone unveiled two trial QuickPhone kiosks in its retail branches in Manchester's Market Street and Trafford Centre.

If the trial is successful it could pave the way for future deployments in airports, train stations and motorway service stations.

At the moment, the kiosks offer Sim cards from 5 and a number of different handsets priced at between 30 and 50, which are understood to be pre-pay models.
