Spend only £1 and get a EE 4G sim with £5 credit (£4 if you activate the £1 pack) and free 100MB recurring monthly data for 'life'. Free delivery.

The sim comes pre-loaded with £5 credit and 100MB data based on my experience. As soon as I entered the sim into my mobile, I received one text confirming the £5 topup and another confirming that the free 100MB data was ready to use.

If you want to take off the £1 pack which comes with the sim, just text STOP PACK to 150 and reply YES when you get a text back from EE asking if you want to proceed. Make sure not to make any calls, text or use mobile data before doing this though if you want to retain the full £5 credit.

The £5 credit can be used for EE Wednesdays 2 for 1 cinema tickets, charity donations or emergency calls instead.

EE Free 100MB Data details - ee.co.uk/hel…fer

Credit to billbennett1 for discovering the EE 100mb free data offer earlier - hotukdeals.com/tag/dea…689

Enjoy!

Edit: The credit and the free 100MB data don't expire as long as you do a connection action (top up or make a chargeable call/text) atleast once every 6 months. Using the free 100MB data wouldn't count according to EE customer services.

Edit: It takes a couple of days for the top up to be applied by EE. Mine took 5 days from the order date.

Edit: The sims usually come back in stock almost every day in the evening. So, if you have missed out for the day, please check back the next day.

Unless someone proves otherwise, the free data is only on PAYG Phone Sims and NOT Data Sims for Tablets, Mi-fis or Dongles (unless you've bought the tablet from EE since Oct 15).

Thanks to raj75 for the Rakuten links - zen135

Switch off wifi, so that you're using mobile data on your device...
then go to add-on.ee.co.uk/status to check allowances used - pileemhigh

Thanks to smileypete for providing updated ebay links - zen135

Just to add a little clarity here, the "Connection Action" does need to be a chargeable activity i.e. a Top-Up, a chargeable call or chargeable SMS etc. Using the free 100Mb data wouldn't count towards keeping the account open. - smileypete

Yes, that's right. You don't need to top up anything as the sim comes pre-loaded with a £5 topup already which triggers the 100MB for life data activation.

Even if you don't take off the £1 pack, you would still get the 100MB for life but the £5 pre-loaded credit would be used up in 5 weeks time.

Will this work in a mifi

The link only mentions the minutes and texts that you get with the £1 pack, which you can cancel anytime you want.

The 100MB free data for life offer is separate from the packs and is a limited time offer by EE when signing up to a new payg sim and topping up with £5 between 15 October and 28 Dec 2014

Sorry have not personally tried this in a mifi but people in the other thread have mentioned this sim working in both dongles and tablets.

Why do I need to take £1 off to start with and do I need to register sim in my name first to activate 100 mb free data? I intend to use it with usb dongle only when away from home briefly. Apologies if being silly

No worries. The sim comes with a £1 weekly pack which will give you 25 mins and 50 texts every week and deduct £1 from your pre-loaded £5 credit every week if it remains active. You can take the £1 pack off if you have no use for the mins and text allowance but want to preserve the £5 credit instead.

I've personally taken off the pack only because I've another pay monthly sim which gives me ample minutes and texts already. I'll use the £5 credit for EE Wednesdays 2 for 1 cinema tickets instead.

You don't need to register the sim in your name first to activate the 100MB offer.

Many thanks for the detailed response. That was extremely helpful. I bought 4 sims as sometimes I am away from home for the whole weekend and 4 sims with each 4 hours internet browsing will do the job!

They take up to 2 weeks to arrive I buy them regularly. Also customer services said the ones with pre loaded credit don't activate the free 100mb. Are you sure they do? I asked when it first started and they said I still needed to top it up

Yes this 4G sim will work alright in a 3G only phone.

Can I use the Sim to buy stuff though Google Play like the Ebay one?

Sorry for being thick but do you have to do anything to "take off the £1 pack"?

Mine took 5 days to arrive and it did activate the free 100MB automatically as soon as the sim was inserted. Please see post #3 above.

Worth a punt, but it does say it comes with £4 credit, not the £5 required for the 100mb/life deal.

Yes, I was confused with that statement before I ordered as well. But, they do come with a £5 credit and line up the £1 pack for activation. As soon as you make any call, text or use mobile data, the £1 is immediately deducted leaving you with a £4 credit and the weekly call/text allowance.
