I really need to get some bitcoins but I live in the UK and my mobile is rooted so I can't use PingIt.  Please help me:)  If it's allowed me being a "newbie" pm me or leave an answer below.

Thanxx.

Sorry not from the uk, but here is a list of options where to buy: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Buying_bitcoins
Maybe you could also try localbitcoins.com , its person to person trade.

You can send cash (GBP) in the mail to Bitcoin Nordic (in Denmark):
 - http://www.BitcoinNordic.com


BitInstant is still in trial mode for their Online Bank Transfer method for buying coins using a bank transfer.  You can try there:
 - http://www.BitInstant.com



Of course, as you mentioned BlockChain.info now accepting funds from Barclays Pingit would be a good option, but if you can't use it from your phone, that takes away that option:
 - https://blockchain.info/wallet/deposit-pingit


Another method to buy bitcoins uses credit card through VirWoX.  How that works is you buy Second Life Lindens (SLL) with credit card, then convert those to BTCs and then you can withdraw BTCs.  With being a new user and using credit card there is about a day delay before you can withdraw, as they complete fraud checks.  They also accept MoneyBookers/Skrill.
 - http://www.VirWoX.com


You can purchase bitcoins with UKash from MercaBit.eu, BitcoinNordic.com and VirWoX.


And, as nomnomnom mentioned, there is of course the growing chance you'll find a local trade:
 - http://www.LocalBitcoins.com


And there may be other methods that work for you as well:

Bitinstant looked promising, but doesn't seem to be accepting payment from UK.

You can always do a SEPA transfer to intersango or Bitstamp ; takes a day or two but at least they're reputable companies. You can do SEPA transfers online with most banks these days.

Bitcoin-Central.net has now opened a GBP market.

GBP deposits are absolutely free, you wire 100 GBP, you get credited 100 GBP.
GBP withdrawals incur a 0.99 GBP fee.

The trade fee is 0.498% which is cheaper than *any* other alternative.

I will take your debit/credit card from the U.K. if you get verified by me. bitcoin-keys.com
Verification is a simple process, I mail you a paper with a code on it and instructions. You can be verified the same day you get the code.
I am also offering a Starter pack which is 1 Bitcoin, Verification, and 3 physical blank bitcoin notes for $16.00.
Once verified you have coins as soon as your payment process no waiting. The only time it takes is the time to load your private key with your funds on it.
