Can I activate a new payg sim and top it up on-line in EU outside the UK

Hi,

 

I am in Korea and plan to travel EU countries other than the UK in a few months. I have just ordered a couple of payg SIMs at eBay.co.uk.

 

Some information says that EE is now changing the system to prevent the first activation of payg sim outside the UK and the policy may be enforced as early as in March this year.

 

Is that true? Is here anybody knows about this?

Thnak you for you comment.

 

However, it has been possible to activate EE payg sim outside the UK even in here Korea and Japan. In fact, a number of my friends, who recommended me EE sim,  activated EE SIMs in Korea and Japan before their trip to Europ, last year.
