Sorry about the lengthy post...be kind!
I've just phoned EE to get a PAC code.
I was asked why I wanted to leave and I told the guy that I was leaving for a deal with mobiles.co.uk of unltd calls and txts and 5GB data and 500mb data a month abroad but the slower data speeds for £9.50/m. This deal was a cashback by redemption deal so had to submit my bills every 3 months and then they'd send a cheque which I then had to cash. I knew I was never going to do this so rang EE to see if they'd match but didn't think they'd get anywhere close.
The guy went away for a bit and come back with the EE top sim-only deal MAX (highest speeds) Unltd calls and texts and 4GB Data which can be fully used abroad in the EU all for £10.99.......I bit his hand off!!!
I also had a sharer sim for my partner which was costing me £12 month and it used my data. He gave this its own sim and reduced the cost to £10.99 as well....that was a no brainer as this now gets full data abroad too and its cheaper than sharing!!!
I did ring 2 weeks previous and was told they couldn't better £22 + £12 sharer sim so it just shows you can get good deals with these people, just do your homework beforehand and get a person which wants to help.
You must get through to the PAC code at retentions for this to work.
Good luck everyone
