If you don't want a pack then just stop the pack from starting.
It will then be a bog standard payg.
No pack is timeless.

Thank you. I have a £30 top up voucher that my elderly mother bought by mistake and they won't refund. The only way to use it up is to buy a PAYG SIM and keep it as an emergency phone. So do I just buy a pack and no activate it?

No, it's safer to text STOP PACK to 150 before you top-up in case the preinstalled pack is bought before you can stop it.
Bear in mind that all EE PAYG SIMs are deactivated after 6 months of chargeable non-use. You then have a further 3 months to call EE to reactivate it before it is lost completely. So you will need to send a text at least every 5 months or so to keep it alive.
