You need an unlocked dongle to switch sims.
I have PAYG sims for three and voodofone for when I'm away with the caravan. I just use which ever gives me the best coverage and then top up if needed. Its always free to access the website of the provider. SIMs are very cheap or free off ebay - some come with data allowance included.
