EE pay as you go sim with free £5 credit if you register before 31/08/2015. They take £1 every week from your £5 credit for which you get 25 minutes and 50 texts but it will be handy to get free POWERBAR.

You can quite easily get a free power bar without spending a penny.

Just order a free pay as you go sim from EE's own website...then send 'POWER' to 365 twice. First time it will tell you that there isn't enough credit....the second reply will be the one you need in order to collect your power bar.

(You can actually order 2 sim cards - so if you want/need two power bars, just order the second sim card. Also, if you want there to be no recourse as far as future power bar charges are concerned, fill in the details using random details. Only the postal address needs to be accurate)

Still for 1 quid they don't have your details to spam you with and have some use of it for calls, data, donation, etc?

They don't have my details anyway

Most text donations are £5 minimum. Given that you lose £1 to the rolling bundle thing, that makes these cards of little use for text donations.

Great for Google Play credit

If you turn data off on your phone then put the sim card in and text STOP PACK to 150 you get the full £5.

Anyone confirm this? Would get red hot in here VERY fast!

Keep in mind that the stock on these sim cards is normally VERY sporadic. So you'll probably make a journey and then come back empty handed :). I know - I've done it in the past!

(These are similar to the Tesco's wild goose chases)

Be a little careful and check the dates. The last one I bought from Poundland had expired and only had 30p on it.

I wish you could transfer your credits from one to another SIM {{{dreaming}}}

​Yes, you will need to also buy a 10p Tiny Top Up in an EE Store (you need this because the text message to confirm mobile top up will charge you 10p to reply).

Add the 10p credit to your phone and you're good to add a £5 top up to your Playstation Wallet.

Says £4 credit instead of £5 though? Strange.

Also the power bars I believe belong to EE and if you leave EE then you have to pay £20 or return it.

& how do you propose EE gets that power bar back from you? After all, the sims don't need to be registered with any personally identifiable details...so it is basically an anonymous process :).
Maybe if you are a contract user - but definitely not a concern via this pay as you go process.

Which is of course all well and good but out side of the terms of service and therefore fraudulent, surely?

That's because they're counting on you not following the instructions mentioned above & being charged £1 for the 1st week of your calls/ data pack.

They also stock different variations, so you do have to look through the rack- also double check there's a SIM in there as quite a few of the packs were empty when I looked.

Here's the previous, although still open, thread on this deal from last month for further info on using credit for Google Play etc.

No, if ee choose to set up a rental agreement without taking any details it is not fraudulent, it is incompetence on their part.

Frankly, even if it was fraudulent, I wouldn't care. EE have been TERRIBLE in my fairly extensive experience of being on their network. They had persistent problems with a local cell tower which left me with zero coverage (countryside dweller ). It took a serious amount of wrangling before I was finally able to break out of my contract. They also tried to charge me for a sim card that they sent me which didn't work on arrival! (They said I should go to a local store to get it exchanged...who then tried to charge me £9 or so for the privilege). Oh, and despite being forced to break out of that contract, they simply refused to unlock my Nokia Lumia phone...only doing so under threat of legal action!

Oh, and their website is atrocious...as is their customer service phone line.

So yer, a couple of free batteries is fair recompense in my opinion

EE's combination of colours are such that Kick ass should do promo vids for them.

Strictly speaking, when you put one of their SIM's in your phone and use their service, you're agreeing to their terms and conditions. At this point they have your SIM ID and its tied to your handsets IMEI.

it would be interesting to see if they chase up their missing power bars by threatening to blacklist IMEI's.... could work out a bit more expensive that expected if you used a nice new phone...

Haha. Good one

(That was a joke, right?)

(The process was done using a Samsung Ace & a Nokia 100...both of which are effectively disposable phones. But there is ZERO chance of any of your theory coming to fruition anyway ).

yeah, your probably right. I can't see them being too bothered. Mainly because they haven't been consistantly upfront with their T&C's when advertising or giving them out (aledgedly...).

Its not uncommon for phone companies to block imei's for unpaid contracts though, but in those cases the phone is still techincally owned by the operator.

my guess is that they'll just debit any credit on the account by £5, even if it means it goes into negative credit. I have no idea how/if they would be interested in chasing the negative accounts, or if they would just sell all the debts on to a debt agency as a huge job lot and scrape back some cash that way.

These things basically cost EE around £2 a pop. They are done as a branding exercise and a goodwill gesture - not a revenue making venture. The interview with MoneySavingExpert shows that EE do not want this to turn into a PR disaster....so all of those T&C's are almost certainly never going to be enforced.

& of course, if they do decide to enforce something, they are going to have some fun trying to enforce it on a Mrs An On, of blabla@yahoo.co.uk, and with a phone number of 01234567890

I've asked in store (multiple EE stores actually) and none have said you can get a £1 top-up on EE?
They've said £5 minimum.

Hmm.. I've topped up £1 multiple times on multiple sims. Last time I did it was about 3 months ago. May be they have stopped? Doubt it tho. Call the Stratford store as I did it there, they'll be able to confirm for you

Will this work with iPad?

Poundland ahoy!

And get some Nerds at the same time too!
