The lady could be sent a uk sim card to put in her phone in case but a lot of non uk passengers get asked questions. That is what immigration staff do.
If it's an option, would you not be better flying out and meeting her?
A great experience for you and I'm sure it would take a lot of the stress and worry away from her.
Just booked the flight for her. BKK-AMS-EDI
I'm not flying to AMS (or BKK), just meeting her at EDI. I'll make sure she has all the relevant travel docs (eticket showing return flight, correctly filled in landing card, travel insurance policy) and my contact details. If they ask same questions as last time, she'll be able to answer them. And she can call me (or have them call me) when she arrives, if needed.
Sounds like sensible plans
Just had another thought. Once she's arrived in the UK, and we decide to take a domestic flight (e.g EDI to LHR) during her time here, there should be no immigration checks. Is that right? I understand she may still require her passport for ID check, but there should be no immigration or questions. Can someone confirm?
if you fly within the uk there will be no immigration checks.
as you say she will need her passport for id.
