4GEE 50GB Internet

Got this yesterday and noticed the SIM was in a pack saying multisim with phone number on it. In a separate leaflet it says I can either use the SIM with that number or request pac code. So what, can I use this SIM as a mobile SIM as well as for the router internet? If yes would it cost extra? I don't quite get it. Is it just a mobile SIM I can use in whatever but it's main function is for the 50gb data with the router. I've had various answers from customer service. One said I should leave it in the router. Another said I can use it in a phone but I can't call or receive calls and another just said it's designed for use with the router and nothing else.

 

So. Can anyone give me the definitive answer on this. Thank you in advance Smiley Happy

Not physically possible! The nano SIM is the interior part of the micro SIM. They are alternatives, not 3 separate SIMs.

 

You may use your data in a mobile phone for any app that uses data. No rules are being broken.

Re: 4GEE 50GB Internet

It's just a SIM! You can use a data SIM in any device you like, mobile phone or MBB router. Whatever allowance or pack it has applies to either.

 

When in a router, you can't make calls but can do texts which are charged at standard rates.

 

When in a mobile phone you can make calls & texts which are charged at standard per-unit rates.

 

Is it a contract or PAYG SIM?

It's a contract SIM. So can I leave the nano SIM in the router and use the microsim in my phone at the same time? I'm just thinking about the data since I could use it to make calls via Skype or messenger etc. And this is ok by EE? I'm not breaching any terms?
