New in the uk, can I order this sim & data ?

25GB of data for £23.40 a month - that's the offer, here's a screenshot of the offer itself. 

As I'm a starting student in London, I've been having another pay as you go card, but found this offer and was wondering if I can buy it with the data plan ? http://prntscr.com/g5j23r

Hi @xFireSoul

 

Welcome to the EE Community 🙂

 

Thanks for the advice @Chris_B and @XRaySpeX

 

You do have to have a credit history in order to take out a contract with EE.

 

You can query your credit file/score and see tips on building your score with a few credit reference agencies listed below:-

Experian – experian.co.uk
 
Equifax – equifax.co.uk

Call Credit – callcredit.co.uk
 

I hope this helps 🙂

@xFireSoul  I take it your not a native UK citizen.  On that basis you will not pass any credit check as you have no history in  the UK so unfortunately you’ll not be able to ge this.

Ah I was aware. I need to be living here for at least 6 months, before being able to get one. Am I right?

There's no hard & fast rule about time, but you need to build up a good enough UK credit history to be accepted by EE for a contract & no one will tell you when that might be.
