I got one of these a while back and did the same, cancelled the contract straight away.
Can someone please explains how this works for a simpleton? Thanks!
I did that last time! Yes you can use the 30gb sim from the previous deal and cancel after 1 month
is it possible to add a data sim from another provider? e.g. vodafone? or are these boxes locked to EE?
But it’s not really £5 though is it? As you also have to pay at least one months line rental which is at least £17 isn’t it?

Basically it's like carrying your home WIFI router around with you ....except it's wireless.


Here's the blurb.....


Take your WiFi with you, with your own personal, secure WiFi hotspot. It’s like your own travelling bubble of internet. 4GEE WiFi gives you access to the UK's fastest mobile broadband.

They're so powerful you can also connect up to 10 WiFi devices at once - tablets, computers, games consoles, the lot. So all your family or friends can get online, all at the same time, whether you're having a picnic in the park, or entertaining the kids in the car.

Yes you can. You will need to get a code (sold on an auction website for 99p) to unlock the device.

Did this 18 months ago and it works great. A cheap and simple way to get MiFi.

Sold locked to EE but unsure if they can be unlocked

if i understand it correctly, you are right, it will cost you at least 5+17=22, provided that you will cancel it in the first month, plus 0.99 for unlocking if you choose to do so.
If you cancel the contract what will you be using in it?
I've just reserved one to pick up and there was no mention of adding any contract ..just £5

Well those people at Curry's will not let you walk away by paying 5.00, but they will also need your payment card details so that they can setup the subscription (it is miss-advertised). But obviously, you might be able to what others suggest above (i.e. cancel the contract).

Still works out cheaper than buying off eBay if contract is cancelled straight away.
Though I may just not purchase as I don't want a credit check on my account for the sake of saving a few pounds

Cancel in the first month? Give your cancellation notice on the day you buy the item so that the maximum obligation may only be the 30days notice period. You may be able to cancel without an obligation to make any airtime payment if you give your cancellation notice immediately after purchase and no airtime is used - probably worth a read of the t&c to confirm.

Use your own SIM / buy airtime elsewhere.

Indeed, the assumption is that you will have other means (like buying a pre-loaded SIM, from EE or 3 or somebody else -- they are usually cheaper than this) and use this as the wifi spot.

well, in fact you don't save some pounds, because the ones sold at ebay are empty of data, which means that you will pay some pounds more but will also have no internet. Hence, you are also forfeiting the data for one month.
Thanks for sharing op....

From Currys product page: "All pay monthly mobile broadband devices must be taken with a 30 day rolling contract."
Does anyone know which bands/frequencies this unit supports? 3 network uses 2100 Mhz for its 4G offering and O2 uses 800 Mhz. Which ones do EE and Voda use? What about band 2300Mhz?

WIll it be compatible with all the bands that all operators use? Also when travelling StatesideEurope?

I agree, thats's why I recently purchased one off ebay for 28.50. Don't want a credit check on my account for few pounds.
Surely it's easier just to use your mobile as a hotspot.

mobile tethering uses up a lot of battery power, also with this you can still take your mobile with you, yet leave a mobile hot spot, for example at a hotel where they charge silly money for data, you could buy local data sim in the country and use this device to connect with your appliances. That is my thinking anyway.

I purchased this device, took out the cheapest mobile contract available, returned home, and called up EE to cancel. I was told that they were unable to cancel the contract as it had been taken out at Curry's. I questioned why when it was their name that was on the paperwork? Apparently, only Curry's can cancel it though so I'll return tomorrow.
Were they fobbing me off?

Try phoning again. They can definitely cancel the contract. Just phone up EE and say you want to give 30 days notice.

EE phone jockey may have misinterpreted your cancellation instruction as a request for a hardware refund? Simply: you can cancel as per the t&c of the airtime agreement. On the assumption you were provided with a paper or electronic agreement, what does your contract say about cancellation?

Probably best not to initially volunteer a timeframe; just ask what is the least-cost method of terminating the contract. If a customer is assertive enough, the customer could suggest it is a distance agreement as the contract was not initiated on EE premises, in which case and on the assumption no airtime has been used: the period to terminate at no charge is within 14 days IAW Consumer Contracts Regulations.

Not always, it's illegal but some hotels have devices which block 4g data so you have to use their WiFi. In that instance I'd use the ravpower filehub not much cop as a home nas but gets you multiple connections off one connection.
Just picked one up from Curry’s Kingston Park, Newcastle. They told me that for all orders done online they are refunding the £5 so it cost me nothing up front and £17 for 1 month via Direct Debit.
I had had any older version of this (Ee Osprey) and worked exactly the same way as has been described previous. Phoned EE and cancelled immediately, just paid the first month. Paid £1 to get the unlock code from eBay, although the data only EE sims are fairly decent. The 24 month 24gb three sim was the best prices at the time.
can i cancel within 14 days condition?
You can cancel immediately but you will still pay a months fee, but you will be able to use the sim for the whole month also. I think the T&Cs state the contract is a rolling months contract with a minimum of 1 month.

Original question probably referred to any option to cancel within 14 days without charge, aka "cooling off period" or similar. Consider that any contract not initiated in an EE store may be classed as a distance contract and so would be subject to Consumer Contract Regulations requiring the provider to offer 14 day cancellation option at zero cost (assuming no airtime had been used). Probably a question for the armchair lawyers. Possibly some useful info at ee.co.uk/hel…act
How long dose this Deal last ?
