Bit of a strange question but is there any reason one of EE's new unlimited data sims cannot be used in a 4G router (EE provided)?
I'm currently paying EE £70 a month for 500GB and am also trialing Vodafone's new unlimited data sim as a possible cheaper alternative. I saw that EE had started offering unlimited data sims from £34 a month and as I have all my other contracts with EE my preference would be to take advantage of this for my home 4G router.
But when speaking to an EE agent today they said the new unlimited data sims "would not fit" my 4G router. When I questioned if it was a matter of physical size they said this was precisely the issue. I said I had a device for trimming the sim down but the response was that EE were not offering the unlimited sims for their 4GEE routers. I asked if I trimmed the sim were they stating it would not work in my router and they responded with a "Yes".
Trouble is the guy was not very convincing that he understood what he was saying and really didn't know either way. I'm just looking for some clarification really so I know if I should try again or go ahead with the Vodafone sim.

No reason why it shouldn't. EE SIMs usually come as Combo-SIMs with all 3 sizes pushable-out.

This is what I thought. I'm just a little concerned that they may not allow the 4G router to be used with the sim. As I said, the guy wasn't really clear with the exact reason it wouldn't work
