Can I buy a SIM in the UK for the World Phone and use on local service?

I am travelling to the UK and have 2 old World Phones. Can I buy a Vodaphone "pay as you go" SIM card and activate these phones under local UK service for my kids while we are there? I really only need phone and text or BIM service.


I believe the UK-based SIM would give the phones a UK-based phone number and make them local calls (instead of paying the higher international rates)
