EE Osprey 2 Mini PAYG Mobile WiFi £24.99 @ Currys instore only

Found 15th Jun 2016
Just found this, hope it helps somebody.
EE 4G Pay as You Go. Comes with 6GB data valid for 60 days (I assume you activate the sim yourself and the 60 days starts then).
Can connect up to 10 devices.

At that price I thought I'd try it out as the reviews are mixed. Also available pay monthly for £14.99.


Can unlock these on eBay for 99p

Sorry, meant to say available in a few Glasgow stores, and fife too. Nothing in Tayside as far as I can see.

Please mention "6GB included" in the title, it will create more awareness and heat.
Good Deal.
Click and collect also. Put c&c in title. Been looking for one of these. For the unit alone this is cheap
Can you unlock these?

Can you unlock these?



Yes you can.on eBay you can buy code for around .99p
Doubt they will be around for long, new version inbound at probably the normal price for this of £49.99, only difference I've seen so far is that they've made it less square.
90 days

(I assume you activate the sim yourself and the 60 days starts then).



Yep. So don't pop it in the router until you want to use it.
Some in Aberdeen if anyone interested.
I bought the 24GB version yesterday for 69.99. Best deal out there. Telford had four,
I bought one myself for £24.99 and paid 99p to unlock it so I can take it abroad. Works out cheaper than getting one from fleabay that is unlocked for you
got one the other day with 2 gig of data for £20. cancelled contract and Amazon do a 6 gig sim card for £13.

works ok with no problems. people say that if it doesn't get a signal it turns it self off but it doesn't the display goes black to save power.

64gig? Do you mean 24?


Showing stock in Doncaster, Sheffield and Rovrum.
good price for payg data
Great deal
Great deal but it's out of stock in majority of stores already.
I hate Currys with a passion. Almost every time I've reserved a 'bargain' I've turned up to discover it's not in stock or nobody knows anything about it. Their website is crap as well.

Rant over.

So, if I don't have any landline and/or Internet connection - this allows for Internet access?
If only 4G data on EE would get cheaper. A friend of mine has a 2Mb Talktalk connection. I tested my EE 4G connection on my phone at his place and I get a 20Mb+ so he'd be a lot better using a 4G router but it would be too expensive to run.

I noticed that too. I have looked but the technical spec's provided are very basic.

Two things that would really add to this discussion:

1) Does anybody know what the technical differences between the old and the incomming (mini) models are?

2) If price wasn't a factor, why choose this type of device over purchasing a second (basic) 4g phone, putting a data sim in that and then using it as a hotspot device.
What would be the pro's / con's vs a dedicated hotspot (only) device, like the osprey?

Kidderminster and Solihull in the Midlands if anyones interested.
Great deal - heated!
The device itself isn't the very best - mine disconnects after 30-60 mins and neds rebooting to re-establish a connection, the battery only lasts about 3-4 hours and the reception is weaker than with other devices (such as the Huawei E5573).
That said, it's undeniable value
Considered this to take on holibags (Portugal) but EE drone says data allowance works in UK only. Anyone have experience otherwise?

The data that comes with it only works in the UK, if you unlock the device for 99p, you can get a local sim card with dada abroad

1) New one has newer processor but the battery capacity and expected "talk time" on EE site is the same. 1500mah and 6 hours for both. It's 3mm smaller. MDM9207 vs MDM9225 on old one.

2) Battery is only doing the data moving on these as opposed to running numerous other apps and possibly updates on a phone. I've got close to the six hours on these and about two when I've used phones. Though guess you could get one with larger battery, cost likely end up rising.
Phones I've used have smaller number of devices that can be connected, and some devices wouldn't even find the hotspot.
But obviously with a phone you can use it as back up phone, sat nav, music player etc.
Possibly more durable, no screen to break if it falls.
Would this work at sea? Like on a cruise?
This is a scorching hot deal. Normal price for the box alone is £50 retail. And a 6GB SIM thrown in for free? Great stuff.

Usually a cheap price for these MiFi's involves being stuck in a contract (or having to cancel and have a credit check) but this is PAYG if I read correctly? The 6GB SIM sells for £15 on eBay
Will that 6gb work abroad if I was to take it on holiday?
Hot from me.
Currys gave me a mini SIM with it, only takes a micro SIM.

I thought all EE sims are 3-ini-1 sim.. I think if you check your mini SIM, the micro SIM will pop out.
I collected mine today and it is a 3 in 1.

Nothing to punch out, it's solid. Same with the 25GB contract SIM I have with EE

Scissors time then. Though maybe being that size suggests it's rather old stock and it may not work anyway. Have you got an old phone to try it in?
