But this is good for those who don't currently yet have a MIFI.

Would've bought one, but I have one already. Hot.
Thanks just ordered this! Where can you get the £10 top up with 100gb from ?

Does the SIM from EE have a activate by date? I probably won't need to use this until the end of January.

Most MiFi devices can send and receive text messages, You just need to connect to the MiFi's WiFi network, then using the web browser on your computer, type in the MiFis IP address.

Doesn't work on the osprey. It only sends texts to proper full numbers, it won't send a text message to a short number which the EE one is I think 150. I tried it earlier in the week.
If only you could continue this after the first month...
Doesn't the Osprey 2 Mini power down its WiFi after a short period of inactivity, and that you have to manually press a button on it to get the WiFi working again? If so that's going to be a massive pain.

The original Opsrey (which I have) doesn't do this and WiFi is on all the time.

But it is two months worth 100 gb each month

Not sure that's totally correct!!
From what I understand you have to order the SIM so as you receive it before the 30th Dec 2k15
It then says you have 2 weeks (14 days) to top up the SIM with £10 to be entitled to the 200Gb (100GB X 2 months)

Source = shop.ee.co.uk/cam…you

Now what I'm not clear on is what happens after the first month expires? Does one need to top up another £10 to gain access to the second months FREE 100GB??
Anyone know?
Cheers

Yes and its a pain in the YOU KNOW WHAT wish i didn't buy one now keeps turning its self off after a short time.
Decent deal as the SIM is worth £10.
Getting a dual SIM phone soon to use with the EE SIMS, so not really needed for me, but HUKD wouldn't be HUKD without making you buy things you don't really need.
Trying to justify this... Will make my phone less hot not having to tether?X)
i've got it to work on my osprey, but I did pop it into my mobile first to activate it and send the text

Mine is also unlocked and won't send 3 digit texts.
The picture is trying to send a text to EE for an account balance.

Any expiry date on the osprey's 100GB sim?
Just get the Huawei one from iD for £20, cancel the contract (you will have £20GB to use on Three network from iD) and stock the EE card inside. Got it unlocked and works great with EE card inside.

the second 100GB goes on automatically without further top up, on my 3rd promotion sim and never let me down to date.

That's fine. Just take the 1 month rolling contract out:

1. Device cost: £9.99
2. Choose lowest monthly contract: £10 for 1GB (30 days)
3. Cancel as soon as possible.
Total device cost: £20

Put in your xmas sim, this way you'll have 200GB over 2 months with the mifi for £30. A better option than buying the £29.99 for 100GB which only lasts 30 days.

May be better for some if they don't want the hassle of credit checks etc.

Trawling the EE forums confirms the Mini powers down after 30 mins of inactivity. My Osprey 1 doesn't do that. Their is a settings page on the CPW Huwaei one to disable auto power down but not on the EE Mini 2 AFAIK.
