Hello, I have got just a basic EE pay as you go plan on my tablet with no packs. I would like to use data to play online games outside (such as Pokemon Go), but am unsure how it works.
Currently my EE account says it has 50mb of data, I presume all I have to do is activate mobile data in my tablet settings to receive an internet connection outside. However, once this 50mb ticks down to 0, do I just lose connection, or does my current top-up start being charged for extra data?

Thanks for the responce, I guess I will buy the data pack then. But you know what happens if you don't have enough top-up to renew the pack after the month? Does it just automatically cancel?

What data SIM comes with as little as 50MB of data? Where did you get this SIM & how much did you pay for it?

I just got a normal £1 pay as you go sim from the shops. I removed any packs before topping up because I wan't sure I needed one.

Ah, you've bought an ordinary PAYG phone SIM & stopped its pack. The 50MB data is just to get you started. You can only get more data on it by buying packs or add-ons.
You can only buy packs or add-ons when your PAYG credit is enough. So it'll just wait until you top-up sufficient.
Hoe much data do you think you'll need? You might be better off with a PAYG Data SIM .
