Travel to UK

I'm traveling to the UK next month for two weeks. It is my
understanding that I can purchase a UK network sim card in order to use
my galaxy s8 while I'm there. It's only a 2 week trip so if I can do
that it seems to be the easiest and cheapest option.

My question is - do I need to do anything other than simply buy a uk sim
and put it into my phone? Do I need to unlock it or anything? My phone
has a sim card slot but doesn't use one.

Thanks!

Hi there orngcat. In order to use another's provider SIM your device needs to be unlock. There are some requirements such as the device must have been active on an account for 12 months, never reported lost/stolen among others. You can learn more here at this link; https://www.virginmobileusa.com/legal#unlocking and if you feel you meet these criteria please let us know to look into this for you.
