Yes, you can buy a PAYG SIM for it with packs of allowances for the UK. None will be unlimited nor include sending to Canada.

 

  • Texts to Canada will be 10p each if you 1st text CALL ABROAD to 150 for a free add-on.
  • Picture msgs to Canada will be 40p each.

Hi @Toffeenut,

 

Welcome to the EE Community.

 

In addition to the great information @XRaySpeX gave you, you can find out more on our pay as you go packs help page.

 

We have packs that include mobile data which would help you keep in touch via social media and messaging apps.

 

Thanks

So just to be 100% clear - an EE SIM card will allow unlimited texts within England but any texts to Canada will be chargeable ?

Texts to Canada will be 10p each (after I text CALL ABROAD to 150)

Texts with pictures wil be 40p each.

 

Texts received from Canada will be free ?

 

Thanks

Sorry, yes, most PAYG packs will have unlimited UK & EU texts but not unlimited call mins.

 

Receiving texts from anywhere will be free (other than from Premium Rate nos.).
