Move to EE From T-Mobile It's not a good idea!!!

 

Dear Sir./ Madam,


I have a T-mobile Sim and I had thought about moving to EE but,
it is not a consideration to be evaluated.

The T-mobile Sim is used in a second mobile phone that acts as a Hotspot and uses
it for 100 percent only, for lot of Internet browsing in house and out I top up the credit I want/need and I go online. NO contract and NO £ 1,5,10 each month and for the average between 10MB and 150M. And I do not need Talk & Text Pack. Look on the EE website and in the section: Move to EE pay as you go From Orange and T-Mobile Choose a Pack: ( available are ) £10 Talk & Text pack £5 Everything pack £1 Talk & Text pack Basic pay as you go Sim None of these offers is comparable or is slightly closer, to the level of the T-mobile Sim that I use. In this regard, I would ask you, if there would be some Pack Plan more appropriate to me. If not, I will be happy to stay with T-mobile plan, without future negative consequences, from you. I look forward to your response. Yours faithfully

@cejko: You don't need to have a Pack on EE PAYG, but you do need to buy a data add-on to be able to use the Net. So you can continue to top-up as you will but you will need to buy add-ons from time-to-time.

 

On receiving your EE PAYG SIM text STOP PACK to 150 before ever topping-up.

 

Then text ADD DATA to 150 to see what add-ons you may buy whenever you need more data.

@cejko You would be better off with an EE PAYG data only PAYG SIM if you don't need any minutes for calls or texts.

 

You cannot have just data add-ons with any EE handset PAYG pack.

@cejko  You could just purchase one of THESE, you get 2GB of data per month for 1 year you then purchase another sim for the following year.   You can get cheaper sims but they don't last as long.

Not a pack but a data add-on. Just text ADD DATA to 150 from any EE PAYG & you get offered the data only add-ons you may buy. I just did & it replied:

For £1.50 add 100MB that last up to 7 days reply 100MB WEEK. For £3 add 500MB that last up to 7 days reply 500MB WEEK. For £5 add 500MB that last up to 30 days reply 500MB. For £7.50 add 1GB that lasts up to 30 days reply 1GB, or for £20 add 5GB that lasts 30 days reply 5GB.  For a full list log on to myEE. ee.co.uk/myee

Re: Move to EE From T-Mobile It's not a good idea!!!

First of all, thank you for answering me.

I try to give you some clarifications regarding my T-mobile sim.

With the T-mobile sim, I go on the internet the whole day paying £ 1 from the top-up.
If, in that single month, I top up to £ 15, in addition to being able to connect for only 15 days, at a cost of £ 1 a day, I have a bonus add-on for the following month, allowing me to connect to internet without making top-ups.
So it's like I pay £ 7.50 every month.

 

Due to loss of work, I had to connect more than usual and attached are screenshots, without any personal information visible,
so you can view them without any problem, and display the data in GB used each Month.
So you'll understand why the link in your response,
 "EE PAYG SIM Card Preloaded with 24 GB of 4GEE Data Price: £ 49.99",

shocked me, although I appreciated the thought.

Yes, my O2 PAYG is similar to that except I probably don't get as much bonus add-on data as you seem to be using.

 

However I'm not convinced by your maths. What's happened to the remaining 15 days of the 1st month for starters? Also your free Internet comes with a fair use policy of 500MB a calendar month. So how come you are using 10s of Gigs? Those usage figures are suspect if you are only topping up by £15 / month. Comparing with sticking to T-M's rules a £10 / month EE data pack would buy you 2 GB data a month & £15 would buy you 5 GB.

Re: Move to EE From T-Mobile It's not a good idea!!!

In fact for the first month, I had made it clear that more or less my connection time was ONLY for, those 15 days. I do not connect continuously and I make the way that I go on for the whole month. 1 3 5 7 9 ... or 2 4 6 8 10 ...
After making the last top-up and reaching £ 15 I receive the message after a while that tells me about the 500 MB for the following month, but to tell you the truth, I do not know why or how, but I can confirm that actually the following month I can connect all the month from morning to evening, taking advantage of those 500 MB, but at a low navigation.

Here are more screenshots and read the notes related to DATA used.

£ 15 for me is 45 day of internet, this mean 15 days the FIRST month and 30 on the second, why spend MORE?

Re: Move to EE From T-Mobile It's not a good idea!!!

So you are saying T-Mobile don't operate their Fair Usage Policy.

 

So it's £10 a month really  That's the sort of maths I was not convinced by, not that you were only going on the Net half the 1st month.

 

I can get the same keeping-to-the-rules 500 MB per month from O2 for £5.

I think I was clear enough for what I said.
But I could not give a correct answer regarding the T-Mobile and their Fair Usage Policy.

 

Thanks for your help.

Re: Move to EE From T-Mobile It's not a good idea!!!

Well, you know about the 500 MB per month. Yet after you receive a text about it you are using many GBs per month  Thus it follows.

Re: Move to EE From T-Mobile It's not a good idea!!!

Let's face it! You've been lucky! You're now comparing a provider who does not even keep to their own T&Cs. Of course you won't find such a good deal from anyone else 

 

I reckon that you're soon have to get used to paying over £50 a month to get the 50+ Gig a month that you are accustomed to

Re: Move to EE From T-Mobile It's not a good idea!!!

At least for once, I can be satisfied in my own way, for this lucky situation.

Online I found ONLY two companies that offer
Unlimited data:

 


GiffGaff £ 25 with gap after 9GB and,

 

3 (Three) £ 20/30 offer Unlimited date.

 

Both do not interest me, for this reason I keep my T-mobile Sim tight. ; -)
