A bit of a vague title but that's the question I'm asking myself!
I'm moving back to England after 15 years of being abroad in Ireland and I've been looking into pay-as-you-go deals throughout the different networks. EE seems the most staightforward for me and a couple of friends over there are with them. I just want to know how I go about getting a SIM card, whether I need to get it set up or not, etc etc.
Last time I flew to the UK was ~4 months ago into Luton and the WHSmiths had many EE SIM cards - if I were to pick up one of those, would I be able to use that full-time or would it expire after a while? Just need to know small things like that aha.

You can get a PAYG in the EE Shop above / SIM Only / PAYG Phone SIMs. You can either:
You can use the SIM either:
EE PAYG SIMs are deactivated after 6 months of non-use. You then have a further 3 months to call EE to reactivate it before it is lost completely.
To keep it alive you need to make a chargeable action 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.
