Re: Pay as you go sim card with no monthly top up time limit

Could I please just clarify to make sure I understand.  If I buy a EE sim and when I get it I text as instructed in the above posts then I will be able to use my phone for texting (which is literally all I want) and the credit remains until I've used it i.e. it doesn't run out after a given time period.  Additionally I can use this when I go abroad within europe. Sorry to appear dumb but I want to be absolutely sure I understand.

Re: Pay as you go sim card with no monthly top up time limit

That's right, @suecliff.

 

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.

 

By texting STOP PACK to 150 before you 1st top-up & you can use the SIM as normal PAYG at standard per-unit rates for calls & texts within the UK & EU, drawing upon your credit until you spend it all or top-up again.

 

Just make sure you make at least 1 call or text every 180 days to keep the SIM alive.

 

Also advise you to text CALL ABROAD to 150 to get cheaper-than-standard International call & texts from UK.
