I am struggling to use data, calls and texts despite having topped up another £25 yesterday which works out at £50 in less than a month. Please don't ask me to call customer services as I can't afford to top up anymore.

Good afternoon @Ja123, I hope you are well
I know how frustrating it can be when things don't work. Don't worry, the good folk here at the EE Community strive in helping people just like you, so you've definitely come to the right place.
You can't afford to top up right now - got it.
I understand you've spent £50 on top ups in less than a month, so let's try to make sure you can use the allowances you've paid for.
Please could you confirm the package you have purchased?
Right now My EE seems to be down, but you should be able to check your remaining allowances by texting BALANCE to 150. Are you able to do this and let me know what happens?
Thanks for coming to the EE Community. I hope this has helped and I look forward to your reply so I can help further.

Thank you for the reply,
Yes, I am aware of my allowances. I have unlimited texts, up to 2000 mins and my data balance rolled over when I topped up again yesterday. The problem is not my allowances, I just cannot seem to access them. When I switch my phone on, it says "Data Connection Only". I checked for signal problems in my street and there are none.

Thank you for the quick response confirming the information @Ja123
Please could you try removing the SIM card for a few minutes and then reinsert it? You might need a SIM removal tool, otherwise a paperclip should work.
Also please double check you haven't got aeroplane/flight mode enabled and your mobile data is definitely enabled.
Thank you, I hope this helps. If not, please reply again and I'll aim to help further

I'm sorry this hasn't helped @Ja123
Are you able to temporarily insert your SIM into a different device (that's on the EE network or unlocked) to help detect whether this could be an issue with the SIM card itself?
Thanks, I look forward to your response
