Hi everyone. I'm looking to buy an EE Nano SIM card to fit into a new Tracking device for my dog. Has anyone on here used one in this way please?
I'm trying to find a cheap PAYG plan as it doesn't use much data as I understand and won't be used all the time. Just on holiday and when off lead. Any help much appreciated.

There's no reason for it not to work.
The trouble with PAYG is that you must make a chargeable call or text, top-up or buy a pack at least once every 180 days.
Whenever you want to track the dog using data you will need to have a PAYG pack, the cheapest of which are either:

Thanks for your reply. I'm a bit confused though because I thought I could buy a Data only sim on PAYG plan - is that not the case?
Also I currently have an EE SIM with 4GB of 4G data which includes a shared plan option - I'm wondering if this shared plan would include a tracker device but honestly I am a complete numpty when it comes to understanding any of this.

I was looking at phone SIMs only as you said little data. Packs with more data can be seen @ What are pay as you go packs? You can a bit more data from PAYG data SIMS @ https://shop.ee.co.uk/preloaded-data-sims . What you already have is not PAYG but a SIM-Only contract, possibly 30 day recurring.
EE no longer do shared plans. They been replaced by data gifting between contracts, not PAYG, nos under the same MyEE family a/c.
