EE Max SIM Only deal £25 Ultd minutes & texts 25GB Data via Carphone Warehouse + FREE Nokia 3310 3G

Ok, the headline figure doesn't look great, but hear me out. There may be better deals in terms of price per month, but I think this deal is notable for a few reasons.

  • It's an EE Max plan, which means you get the fastest data rates available, and Roam like Home includes more countries than just Europe (Australia, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand and USA). These plans don't come up very often as SIM Only plans, and I don't know how long it will be available for.
  • It comes with a free Nokia 3310 3G in a choice of colours. This is a fantastic little phone to keep around as a spare, or you can trade it into CEX for around the £30 cash mark (more for voucher).
  • You can get £50 cashback from Quidco, which takes the total price over 12 months down to £250.

I don't know how long this deal is going to be around for, so get it while it's here I guess? I think it's pretty good for a non-retention deal, and it convinced me to submit it here (as my first ever submission), so take from that what you will.

Quick edit - it doesn't say explicitly on the website that it's a Max plan, but I spoke to someone over the phone who confirmed that indeed it is.

Congratulations on your first deal


Thanks, hasn't exactly got heat but everyone's gotta start somewhere

Hi @danlesser , not everything will go hot, that's how the forum remains balanced but we genuinely appreciate the members who take the time to share deals and those members who provide feedback on them which helps with future bargain hunting

You're right in the sense that the fair usage policy says you can use up to 15GB however having recently worked for EE, I know they don't care how much you use.

Heat for sharing - welcome to HotUKdeals!

It's not for me, even with the "sweetener" of a Nokia handset, £25/month for only 25GB of data isn't that impressive (especially when the SIM is 4G and the free handset is 3G - you can't even use it to share out the signal!)
Thanks for sharing op and welcome

There's a like button, or you could say the above without adding heat. The entire point of Hot or Cold is for the deal itself - not whether you like someone, or want to say thanks.

Was that on a retention deal? Otherwise it sounds too good to be true if I'm honest.

I know there is a like button, however as I can't find a better deal I voted this hot (I was going to post the Virgin Media £25 unlimited deal - but you need to be an exiting BB customer with them to get that deal). See I know how this voting system works...

How did you get this deal?


I’ve got a 30gb EE Max SIM only deal for £15 a month, also on a rolling 30 day contract. There’s a separate thread on this.
I was an existing customer, by the way. It’s a £30 plan with a £15 loyalty discount.

I think the £25 a month for 25gb on a Max Plan is a good deal for new customers so have voted hot!
EE stopped doing MAX plans on SIM Only a few months ago. Except for saying it's full speed, is there anything to confirm this is a max plan?

It'll be a SIM plan but with the Roam at Home adding the old Max roaming crap

I'll bet this is NOT a Max plan, and is simply a standard sim only plan with the 4G Go Faster add-on included.

Check the CPW page, no mention of Max or the 5 extra roaming countries.

People are simply assuming it's Max...

Aaprt from the OP being told it's a max plan when they called, of course.

I've been assured that it's a Max plan by both CPW and EE themselves. 100% sure. It has everything that a Max plan comes with except for the extended BT Sport (only comes with 3 months instead of 24).

Not in writing but I have the assurances from literally everyone I've spoken to (including a manager at CPW who made sure for me). I don't know what more I can say.

You know what they say about verbal promises from sales staff?

They are not worth the paper they're (not) written on...

why don't CPW amend their website to show it's a Max plan if they're all so eager to confirm it?
