data Problem wifi mini



First time poster, i recently got my new Iphone SE on EE - around may 12 they gave me a mini wifi 4gb as a bonus to my £21 month contract with 1gb - The seller told me this could used out and about but he would sort it now so the data would go straight onto my phone making i5 5GB of data - 2 weeks ago i get a text telling me i have already used my 1gb of data and have ran out for this month until the 16th - Was i misold? have i heard wrong? is there anything i can do to fix this?


Any help appreacited,

For iPhone battery reasons if (usually) a issue - gift the data from the iPhone sim to the WiFi sim and switch data off on the iPhone and use the WiFi mini device for your internet connection, your iPhone battery will last much longer daily and in its general life span due to less charges. 


I carry a Huawei pocket WiFi device for this very reason 😉
