You've heard the rumours, you've seen Kevin Bacon monkeying around in the ad, and you've got excited. And quite rightly so. Families can now get more with EE.
A family account is simply an account with more than one plan on it. This could be your phone number and a couple of kids, your phone number and your partner, or even just a few plans you use yourself.
Well, there are some great benefits of a family account!
Quite simply, it's great value for money - free, giftable data and discounts to boot!
A family account isn't something you get - it's something you make. All you have to do is have one existing plan on your account, and add other plans to it. These could be your family, housemates, or even other plans just for you.
If you already have multiple plans on your account, great - you're all set. You just need to upgrade any of your additional lines to reap the benefits.
Some questions you may have:
If you're the lead account holder for 2 or more numbers you can now control whether those lines are able to purchase additional mobile data or make international and premium calls. You can even gift data, so if one of your accounts is getting low you can share some of your excess, simply by logging into the My EE app and going to Family Usage. It's really easy to do.
Only the lead person on the account can gift data, but they can gift it from any linked account, so if your teenager has been heavy on the downloads and your partner still has at least 500MB left on their account, you can give the teen a bit more data from your partner's account.
Data that has been gifted can't be carried over month to month so all your lines will reset to their original data plan at the start of each month.
Each time you add an eligible additional line to your EE plan, weâ€™ll give you a 1GB data boost each month. It's easy; all you need to do is add another eligible handset, tablet or SIM to your account and you'll get the boost on your account when your allowance next resets.
