Can you comment on how easy and reliable you found the cashback claim …Can you comment on how easy and reliable you found the cashback claim process to be. Seems like alot of admin!


Sounds like it but do not be scared off! Buy this deal if you like the offer and EE.

Follow these steps if you buy this deal and give them your bank account details to pay in your cashback.

Grab your pac code also as you'll need this to move your number across to the sim. Once the sim has been delivered to you, apply for a transfer for your number using the pac, your number and the number on the new sim.

Step 1: Go to the FAQs and jot down which months bills you need to upload to them via your account on the fonehouse website. You'll also have your EE order on there. Different length contracts have different months asked for.

Step 2: After your first bill on EE is produced make calendar entries so from that day on x months from now you know that your bill has been produced and needs to be uploaded for cashback. Register with EE to track your remaining data allowance and to download your bills.

Step 3: Use your phone and wait for the bills to be produced.

Step 4: Once the bill for the month needed to be uploaded has been produced, go into your EE app on your phone and download the bill.

Step 5: Sign into your fonehouse account and upload the bill from EE which is typically in pdf format. They need the first page to confirm usage and address etc but I would just send them the bill as you get it from EE.

Step 6: Sit back and wait for the confirmation email and the electronic payment via BACs from fonehouse into your bank account as cashback.

My instructions sound long but in reality it's 10 minutes of your time to save a lot of money and have a lot of fun on the best UK network in my opinion for coverage and speed.

Edit: something I didn't include but is totally applicable is the scenario that you want this deal but are already on EE...AND want to keep your number. Now this way is longer but it's worth it imo.

Step 1: Grab your pac code from your existing SIM via the new pac or stac code text messaging service (Google for more details) and order this deal.

Step 2: Go to a network like 3, virgin etc. And order yourself a free pay as you go SIM card.

Step 3: wait for the pay as you go SIM card to be delivered to you.

Step 4: call up 3 etc and provide them with your pac code and move your phone number across to the pay as you go SIM. Depending on you chosen network this could take a few days but it's worth it.

Step 5: once the number you want to keep is on the pay as you go SIM card, request another PAC code.

Step 6: call up EE and give them your PAC code and move your number back to the new SIM ordered from this deal.

Step 7: Continue from step 4 prior to the edit.

Further edit: according to @jnm21 the bills from EE are generated quicker than when EE eventually gets round to sending you an email. Early this is likely to be good to know but once you get the first bill date of generation, you can make calendar entries from that date onwards anyway to be sure you don't miss out on the cashback.

ThrEE times the incompetence


If you want the best experience when calling EE if you don’t get a irish accent hang up and try again, or else prepare for a Child Tax Credit numbnuts who hasn’t a clue, in Ireland it’s the few in U.K. it’s the many. Go irish.

Disclaimer:Based on being a EE customer.
I can see the process is identical, but is the cashback process as reliable as e2save / mobiles.co.uk?
Edited by: "FF99" 21st Aug
Anyone know if EE are releasing an unlimited data deal anytime soon? Quite a few others are now doing it except EE who still seem expensive for their higher data deals.
Can I move from my exsiting EE sim only sim (Out of contract) to this? Or do I ahve to switch to another network and comeback?

I don't think EE will go down that route. Its only 3 that have done it until Vodafone did it with tariffs on 5G deals.

EE prefer to just jack up the price and expect people to pay £80 for 50gb data.

Vodafone aren't too bad in my experience. 3 are the worst but then this could change on 5G.

For me EE aren't great with customer service but they a damn sight better than 3 who seem to be determined to do anything other than what you ask them to do.

You'd have better chance of getting what you want but not asking for it! Please 3 DONT offer me unlimited data for £10pm...

Vodafone haven't been too bad when I used them. BT are right up there with 3 imo.
GeeeBeee21/08/2019 13:58

Thanks very much kwl147...appreciate your summary


No worries. Its very very simple and there's no way for them to not pay you as its electronic submission online.

I have two sisters, one cousin and now a friend on similar deals £8 EE 20gb sim only deal when that went hot.

None of them have had problems and you normally 30 to 60 days depending on the retailer policy to claim cashback so worry not if on the day of the bill, you're at work and too exhausted to do it.

It's so easy, it's rather tedious after a few times and you end up wondering why don't they just lower the price to begin with but you'd be surprised how many people don't bother or forget to submit the bills for cashback. It was more hassle back in the day using post and then fighting with them if they claimed they never received it!

I keep holding out that they will. I use EE 4G for my home broadband limited to 64gb a month as BT landline provides 0.2mbs. Even 100gb or 200gb would be good-unlimited better. They are the fastest for my internet. I’ve tried Vodafone but they give 3-5mbs speed which I guess isn’t bad but EE give us 16-20mbs. Tempted just to swap to an unlimited Vodafone sim which is cheaper than the £27 a month I’m giving EE.

I'm assuming you don't get any coverage on 3?

I would think about looking at someone like Virgin that run on EE and to my knowledge will offer high data tarrifs often cheaper than EE. Be wary of coverage and speed. I would definitely keep an eye for 14 day cooling off period. I rarely ever recommend Virgin media but your circumstances are unique and it may serve you good speed and high data gb to use.

Problem with 3-5mb is that you can barely stream YouTube on that. Comes down to what you want from it I guess...

Not at all, Three sell one product so scripts and processes are easier, training a onshore monkey in multiple products seems beyond BT Consumer brands CTC employees capabilities, multilearning isn’t easy with a basic U.K. education, multitasking is way beyond even comprehension.

Out of Three, BT and EE, Ireland and India are way ahead of the CTC raised numpties.

“I don’t understand” “can you explain that again”, “that doesn’t SEEM right” are to be a regular responses from BT/EE U.K. call centre staff, at all costs I avoid calling their shambles and hang up unless a irish voice greets me.... “ok let’s get this sorted” seems to be the general response by Ireland or India, granted India is a bit more restrictive by being a third party, but negativity responses of needing to repeat yourself to BT/EE staff on their own products they are meant to understand is shockingly poor par.

That’s my problem. EE for me has the speed but not the data allowance and the others have no speed but plenty of allowance. I’m going to try virgin next as they piggy back off EE. Fingers crossed.

I tried a friends 3 sim for a couple of hours not long after they launched their unlimited £20 per month data sim which I really hoped would solve my problems. Unfortunately it steadied out at about 0.8-1.5mbs so was gutted it didn’t work out. I have tried virgin yet. I think that will be my next move. I may try one of the cheap PAYG sims you find near the tills at the supermarket rather than sign up to a credit check with virgin direct. To be honest I don’t really stream or watch internet tv like Netflix. It’s mainly web-browsing and sometimes to download a sky film or sky series. My main issue though is the kids are growing up fast and won’t be long before they are asking for their own phones and tablets so I need to get onto an unlimited tariff sooner rather than later.

I think we've had different experiences. 3 have been unquestionably the worst for me. Probably just bad lucky who I spoke to but way I see it, is that the prices they sell sims etc, they're going to cut corners some where.

Yeah I agree on the regular responses from call centres in UK but then again I find my success rate of getting my query resolved, pretty decent on call centre in the UK.

It's true. When the kids grow up they'll be using ridiculous amounts of data and maybe even 16mbs won't be enough bandwidth to keep em all happy.

Yep try a virgin sim if you can get one for free. I think I've had this problem before and they always say order one online.

I will say that they don't have access to the band 20 800mhz spectrum on EE hence they generally don't have as good coverage or priority on the parent network but my hope is that for you, they'll be able to provide ample speed and have a tariff that will help resolve the unlimited data issue.

Netflix will struggle on such a slow speed from Vodafone. Even web browsing wont be great with the amount of ads online now.

I would think Seaniboys deal on EE would suit you. 500gb is tough to blast through with your usage. The kids will make mince meat of it though. I know I blast through maybe a couple hundred gb alone myself on unlimited.

Live chat on Three is better than a call

Live Chat on EE is more sore and hard work than a call

Did you try lock to the 1800 high speed frequency ? The 800 slow speed is really Talk and text, what hardware are you using to connect to wireless broadband ?

Yeah generally I have either Billing or retention deal requests. So I'm a simple guy and I know how to help myself. I assume from the outset that I'll know more about what's wrong and how to fix than those guys ever will unless it's an account problem I don't have access to.

EE are deluded anyway with the prices they try to charge regular Joes without discount. I don't need any other evidence to tell me that half of them are drunk AF and think they're the top dogs. It's only going to get worse with BT owning them. I was told by someone that BT are still being funded by the government|taxpayer even now!

I’m quite good 200-300GB a month on Three as broadband, cheaper than haggling broadband every 12m and twice the speed most the time.

They really should give everyone unlimited data, and you buy U.K./interns call/text bundles - times have changed but the mobile telecos are hanging on when really they’ve become mobile ISPs

True. And a lot of the time mobile networks can give you better speed than fibre optic to the cabinet companies.

I agree with you. They should give unlimited data to everyone IMO as well. However there are some people that will take the mickey and try downloading the Internet. Happens all the time during peak times on VM etc. Slows the service right down so they had to throttle people or anyone that wasn't using a VPN so they could see the data packets. That changed recently though and most say in their tcs that they don't throttle...

It’s 2x2 Mimo which is more akin to built up areas with good signal


Can you lock to frequencies?

It supports 2600 for Vodafone and 1800 for Three/EE but if it defaults to 800/900 4G things are going to go slower, if you are remote things can go slower and 2x2 means you will go slower than 4x4 mimo.

Its second generation 4G, 4x4 being last generation and now 5G

What kind of speeds to do you get ?

and assuming your on EE for mobile what handset and speeds do you get ?

Throttling is now done by network at network level not overuse, or whatever use, the network will balance you and others so there’s no excuse really, Threes TrafficSense is a lot less restrictive now but I can see at network level slowing when all the students/schoolers are online, thankfully Go Binge isn’t impacted, and my B612 way outperforms Three Broadbands own hardware, because it’s 4x4.

I’ve never messed with the router setting but I think you can lock into frequencies? I’ll have to have a play and see what I can do.
I’m in a remote rural area hence the very slow landline speeds of 0.2mbs. We are 4kms from our nearest green box

I’m on Vodafone for my mobile and get no phone signal at all in the house and have to be in the garden or hanging out a window to make a call. It’s the same as EE though (either in the garden or close to a window. However the antenna and B593 router does pick up 4G as the antenna is near the guttering outside high up. If I’m honest I would switch to EE for my mobile if they were a little more competitive.

It’s 2x2 Mimo which is more akin to built up areas with good signal Can y …It’s 2x2 Mimo which is more akin to built up areas with good signal Can you lock to frequencies? It supports 2600 for Vodafone and 1800 for Three/EE but if it defaults to 800/900 4G things are going to go slower, if you are remote things can go slower and 2x2 means you will go slower than 4x4 mimo. Its second generation 4G, 4x4 being last generation and now 5G What kind of speeds to do you get ?and assuming your on EE for mobile what handset and speeds do you get ?

In your opinion which is the best router to get and what does 4x4 and 2x2 mean....I get rubbish signal on three is there a way to get better signal by using an outdoor aerial connected to router.
