Giffgaff* is a new mobile phone company on the O2 network. They offer SIM only pay as you go and are very cheap. You keep your old unlocked phone, pop in one of their SIM cards (order here), activate it online and off you go. When you first activate it, you have to top up with £10, but you’ll get an immediate free £5 credit too!
