Preloaded Data Sim



Can a preloaded data sim be used in a normal mobile phone, I want the device to use data (no calls or sms texts) as will mainly be used as a satnav so only needs small data service


Also is the cost the same when need to purchase another (ie I've seen one for £1 for 200mb for 30 days which is ample , but will it then be £1 to renew at same for 30 days

Re: Preloaded Data Sim

Yes, you may use the SIM in any device you want.


Where do you see 1 for £1? I think you'll find that just to buy the SIM & you'll have to top-up to get the data.

@XRaySpeX here - https://shop.ee.co.uk/preloaded-data-sims

£1 for 200mb and £8 for 2gb


@Leanne_T i've already looked at those, but it's a data sim only i'm after, which is why i was aking about the preloaded sim and the ongoing cost for 200mb sim.


I wouldn't use the 2gb of data and currently the calls/data/sms sims cost more than i wish to spend for what you get.


I've purchased the £1 sim to see how it is for 30 days and if provides the data coverage/usage needed for satnav features
