Can i purchase a prepaid disposable phone at the EE store in Gateshead, Newcastl

When I visit the UK for 3 weeks in September I would like to purchase a cheap disposable phone only for the purpose of making local phone calls.  I wouldn’t use more than 5 hours total phone time.  Can I buy this type of phone with prepaid minutes at the EE store in Trinity Square, G108, 22 Ellison Walk, Gateshead NE8 1BF when I arrive in the UK?  How much do they cost?  Do you have information about this on your website; I couldn’t find it.

Look on the EE website at https://shop.ee.co.uk/mobile-phones/pay-as-you-go/gallery?search=:best-sellers .

 

There you'll find the cheapest Alcatel 10.66 for £14.99 including £10 PAYG credit, ideal for just making calls & texts and so on upwards.

Hi @gini 

 

Yes you can buy a PAYG phone and credit from in store . Cost is dependent on the device you want to buy. Most supermarket also sell PAYG phones.

 

You could also buy a cheap phone from Amazon and bring it with you, picking up a SIM at the airport.

 

Thanks
