PAYG query

I've recently got an EE SIM for our old iPhone, so my daughter can use when she goes out. It's called '£10 Everything Pack'. Having just stuck £10 into the account, it seems I need to pay in every month, regardless of use (?). What I' after is a traditional PAYG scheme, i.e. the balance stays active over many months til used up - this doable with EE?

Re: PAYG query

@TheOptician : All EE PAYG SIMs come primed with a recurring Pack of allowances ready to bought out of your PAYG credit as soon as it is sufficient. Your last top-up went to buy this Pack.

 

Text STOP PACK to 150 before you next top-up & you can use the SIM as normal PAYG at standard per-unit rates.

Re: PAYG query

OK so I text STOP PACK to 150... then I only need to top up with credit WHEN credit runs out, and not monthly - I got that right? Reason being I'm using my old phone to give to kids when they go out, in case of emergencies etc, so paying a regular £10 pcm isnt necessary !

Re: PAYG query

That's right.

 

To keep the SIM activated you need to make a chargeable action within every 180 days, like making a chargeable call or text, topping up or buying a Pack or Add-on, not just using your mins, texts or data from your pack.
