PAYG COST FOR USE IN GERMANY

Hello

 

I live in Canada, and visited the UK in April 2017.  While there I purchased an EE sim card to use for the week I was in the UK.

 

I am headed to Germany (Landing in Frankfurt, staying in Berlin) in October 2017 and I am wondering:

a)  Can I use the same sim card?

b)  What will the cost be?  (I need about 2 GIG of data, no calls, and very few texts)

c)  Should I top up my money on my SIM card prior to going to Germany and then activate it once I land?

d)  How do I activate it?  and is it immediate?

 

I tried texting RO GERMANY to 150 with my EE sim card in, but its not providing a response.  I am assuming this is because I am in Canada?  

 

Any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated!
Thanks so much 🙂

Re: PAYG COST FOR USE IN GERMANY

a) Yes. Make sure you keep it activated by using it at least once every 180 days.

b) Same as UK. The £15 Everything Pack would seem to suit you best. Text EP15 to 150 when you're over here. See Pay as you go packs - minutes, texts and data

( @James_B: There's a error on that page in the footnote under the "What packs are available?" table. "£15 4GB Everything Pack" should be "£15 4GB Data Pack")

c) You can top it up when you like with a UK bank card.

d) It should have been already activated when you were here last.
