Re: Can i get a pack before i travel to vienna from abroad?

Was last call a chargeable call? Calls from pack are not chargeable & therefore don't count. So unless that call was e.g. to outside UK you've only 7 days to top-up before it's deactivated.

 

Have you got a UK bank card you can top-up with? If not, you will need to wait till UK before you can top-up.

Can i get a pack before i travel to vienna from abroad?

@julia_m: You should be able to if you already have enough credit on it or can top-up from wherever you are. You can do this now using your online MyEE a/c.

 

Which pack would you want? You may even be able to buy the pack by text msg using the right code.

 

When did you last make a chargeable call or text, top-up or buy a pack? Your SIM should still be active but next month it could go into hibernation unless you do 1 of these 1st.
