can you set up to gift data every month

I have a few phones on my contract and just upgraded which gave 2 of my phones lots of extra data.

I have already gifted data from 2 phones to another phone but was hoping that I could just set it up so every month when the plan re-starts that the data just gifted without me having to do it on the EE site every month.

Can this be done? if not would EE be looking at maybe setting this up for its customers?

Remember if we need more data then can move it back by logging in, but don't expect this to be needed.

Re: can you set up to gift data every month

@madbrumie  Data gifting is a service that you can use when someone is running low on data as that was how it was conceived.  This itself might not be needed each month so there is no way to setup a set amount of data per month.

No, it can only be gifted manually each month.

Re: can you set up to gift data every month

Hi Chris_B

When talking on the phone to EE when renewing my contracts 1 of the things the EE customer service team said was that keeping our Sim only plan for our son was a good idea as we can gift him more data at the start of every new month. He even offered a ower sim only deal with less data if we wanted as he knew we would never use the extra data that was on the 2 plans we took out, but we stayed with what we had in the Sim only plan.

So the EE customer services was selling the "gift data" as a way to give more data to the sim only plan we have for our son every month.

Which is what we plan on doing and have started doing (I gift 10gb from 2 different phones to his sim only plan) so he now has an extra 20gb of data a month (or every time I remember to do it)

So really it would be a good idea to be able to have a sharing data set up so if 1 runs low or out of data then it can be taken from another plan as long as this was set up on EE before hand, This way we would not have to log in every month to gift data, and only when extra data is needed would it be taken from another plan you have on your account. (So I think anyway)

Hi @madbrumie

 

As what @Chris_B said, however I think your point is a good idea tbh, it's your data after all.

 

Thanks
