Buy a local Thai sim card for Data, and turn off your o2 sim for data, and just keep it on for Calls and SMS.. alternatively get your employer to provide a phone..

 

Otherwise it will be £6 per day to us the phone, assuming you are on Pay Monthly.

A local Thai sim.

If you must use your own phone, use WhatsApp over wifi where possible.

✔ You can use the O2 Travel Bolt On, which gives you unlimited minutes, texts and data for just £6 a day. You can opt-in to O2 Travel by texting TRAVEL to 23336. You’ll only be charged for the days you use it.

Charges here https://www.o2.co.uk/international/using-your-phone-abroad
