Re: Basic pay as you go Sim

Hello @kalium yes you can order a free EE PAYG SIM card to use in your 2G device here:

To use EEs basic standard rates at 30p/min and 12p/text the first thing you need to do after inserting the new SIM card is text the code STOP PACK to 150 to remove the preloaded pack you have to choose when ordering.

Yes, EE 4G SIMs will work in 2G ( & 3G) phones by downgrading to connect to the compatible lower standard networks.

Re: Basic pay as you go Sim

Thank's for your answer. And how can I buy a Basic pay as you go Sim without packs?

In online store it's necessary to move an existing UK number but now I have not a number because I am moving in UK from abroad

All EE PAYG SIMs come primed with a recurring Pack of allowances ready to bought out of your PAYG credit as soon as it is sufficient.

 

Text STOP PACK to 150 before you 1st top-up & you can use the SIM as normal PAYG at standard per-unit rates.

Remember to make at least 1 call or text every 6 months to stop it going into hibernation.
