Unfortunately looks like the topup goes towards a monthly PAYG pack


You can avoid this happening by texting STOP PACK to 150 then text YES to 150

You MUST do this first/immediately before any other actions (calls text data) or the pack will start automatically and £20 Will be deducted from your balance

I can confirm that this works

No worries

After texting STOP PACK to 150 you should receive a text from EE asking you to confirm. Then is the time to text YES to 150

It's painfully slow as a satnav. I tried it.
I went to checkout, it said to fill in a standing order for for iPhone 6

Double checked basket, no iPhone 6 there.

I use a £20 Alcatel smartphone (from a deal on here) as a kind of GPS on my bike. I can use an armband on my top tube to keep it sitting on the unusual square section there.... I was too late to pick up the bike phone holders for a few pence posted earlier :-(

This has to be a good deal at £22 plus airtime.

I'm not sure this is smart. Seems more like a thick-phone to me. But good phone for price

The display was very jerky when used as a satnav. And the screen is one of the worst I have ever seen with terrible viewing angles.

Not with this one. A unique selling point is lack of GPS! Yes, no GPS.
If you stop the credit, could it then be applied to my EE pay monthly account?
Not voting either way, it's just ok as a spare phone for when your proper smartphone is being repaired or something, but it will drive you mad (even just using it for a few days) due to how laggy it is, and running out of ram for essential apps.
I know because I got the pixi 4, to use as a spare when my P9, was being repaired.
Hot it's a good deal, buy it flog it, keep the credit
Is the device sim free ?
