Welcome to the EE Community,
No you wont lose any credit when your number moves to your new sim.

Not as long as you just transfer your no. to EE & not buy any-old EE SIM.
To switch to EE PAYG use Move to EE pay as you go From Orange and T-Mobile & get £10 free credit to boot.

Hi XRaySpeX, thank you for your reply. I've received a new SIM and thought I had ordered one with the £10 free credit on already, but the instructions say 'Pop it in, Register for MyEE, Pay for your pack'. I'm assuming by these instructions I've asked for the wrong SIM?

Looks like it. If you didn't order it from the link I gave but just from new PAYG SIMs in the EE Shop it won't have that £10 free credit on it.
Where you ordered it from, did you have to give your existing no?
15-02-2019 06:47 PM
Yes, it asked me to input my existing number. I thought I had followed the correct thread at the time.

@jcd2 if you entered your current number then when you pop the EE sim into your phone it should move your number over.

Ah, you should be OK. It's asking you to 'Pay for your pack' as the £10 free credit is only given to you to make chargeable calls & texts, not for buying packs. It wants you to top-up with some of your own money so the pack can be bought. IMHO it's a bit of a swizz really .
What exactly does texting AL to 150 report?

It gives me a balance, but I haven't been keeping an eye on my balance and don't use it up very quickly so I can't tell if any free money has been added. But it's over £10. I'm going to give it a go. Thanks for your help.

Does this happen straight away? As I've put in my new SIM and got a text saying my balance is zero. I had had a balance of over £16 on my T-Mobile account. I've put the old SIM back in and the correct credit is back.

@jcd2 it shouldn't take that long but sometimes can take up to 24 hours.
15-02-2019 09:20 PM
@jcd2 if it dont move across I would give customer services a call on 150 or ring freephone 0800 956 6000 opt 2 opt 4
