Free EE SIM and for £10 get 100GB of data for 2 months

Found 16th Oct 2015
EE are doing 100GB data per month free for 2 months when you top up £10 on their new Christmas free SIM deal. May help someone out.

New SIM needs to have been ordered by 29th December.

Go here, shop.ee.co.uk/cam…-ee if you want your own.

There is an AWFUL lot of contradiction on here but let me put this to rest once and for all.

The easiest way to get your 100GB AND keep your £10 credit is as follows:

1. Receive SIM

2. Put SIM in phone. Any phone. Dumb phone, smart phone. It doesn't matter. No need to turn data off

3. Text 'STOP PACK' to 150 (this merely stops the £10 1GB/50 mins/50 texts add-on from starting. This is the ONLY thing STOP PACK does. It does NOT stop the 100GB add-on from being applied)

4. Buy a £10 top up in a shop using the E Top Up card supplied. (It's much easier to top up this way due to problems with the EE top up website)

5. Text 'CHRISTMAS100' to 150

6. Voilà. You now have your 100GB free each month, for two months - and your £10 credit to spend on anything you want.

Thanks to preecey

To check if an existing SIM from previous promotions is eligible for the offer, or if you want to ensure the promotion is active on the SIM without losing any money in the process, text CHRISTMAS100 to 150 BEFORE you top up. If the text back asks you to top up before they add the free data, the promotion is live on the SIM. If the text back states something along the lines of 'sorry you're not eligible', do NOT top up as you won't get the free data.

If you don't want to start using the data straight away make sure at step 2 above that Data is TURNED OFF.

Between steps 3 & 4 above reply YES to 150 to confirm you want to stop the pack. (You don't get a further text back. )

Is the postcode lookup on the form broken?
postcode finder not working
same here
Some info on this from last time:
- Yes it's 100gb not 100mb. Activated after top up by texting CHRISTMAS100 to 150.
- You get 100gb for the first month. Then it automatically gives you 100gb for a second month. Then it becomes a normal sim.
- If you text STOP PACK to 150 after topping up but BEFORE using data (switch data off on your phone, the text will still go ok) it won't use your £10 before giving you the 100gb. So you can use the 2x100gb and still have £10 credit to activate afterwards whenever you wish.
- It can be used in mifis, and EE don't ban tethering.
- If you have a sim from the last 100gb promo(s), it will activate this offer if you top up by £5 then text CHRISTMAS100 to 150 EDIT: PEOPLE ARE REPORTING THAT EE DO NOT NOW ALLOW THIS. Further edit: Topping up by £10 and texting CHRISTMAS100 DID work on 6th Nov.
- You can save it for future use - just do the stop pack thing and then don't use any data. I'm still using one now and it'll run to mid-December. Need to text once every six months to stop the sim being disabled. Your credit can be used for this without activating a pack.
- If you top up old sims, the 100gb starts immediately - haven't found a way to delay for future use.

Possibly. I added £5 to a previous promo sim last time, and it worked. I still had the original £10 top up on it, so I now have £15 credit and did get the 200gb add-on.

As someone mentioned above, we need someone to risk the £5 to find out if it works this time!
will summer sim work?

No has to be the special sim online
I have the SIM from last time. I toped up £10, texed to activate the promotion, and then texted to stop the pack. So I got the 200GB, but still have £10 credit.

I have just tried to text CHRISTMAS100 to 150 (without topping up any more), but I got back “Sorry, but this offer is not available to you.
Is there a time limit to activate? Interested in one of these for Glasto next June.
Can I transfer my sons pay as you go mobile number over to this SIM card?

Presumably you could also just use the £10 to buy 10 x £1 data packs also at 100mb each lasting up to a week. So for £10 you are getting 2 months of data, then up to 10 weeks at 100mb a week, which is enough for me as long as you don't stream anything.

It can also be used for charity donations.

One thing to remember with PSN credit is that you have to pay for the text message as well, so with only £5 credit you cannot top up your PSN by £5, but with say £5.20 you could as you have the extra to cover the text message cost.
Postcode finder working now.....just ordered. Used it the last time on my iPad Air and it worked fine.
Is this only for a regular sim card? Take it I can't get a mobile broadband sim?
Thanks just ordered another two because my summer sim data ends in two weeks.
The postcode address search is working for me on Android Chrome browser if anyone is still having problems.
Brilliant! Thanks for the heads up OP. I had a feeling there'd be another of these deals, I've had 3 of these previoulsy which has kept a friend with no landline/internet online for almost 6 months...much, much cheaper than even the cheapest landline and internet deal. I think EE should make this a permanent 100GB a month deal.

HEAT (again!)

These work in a mifi or tablet as well as mobile phones.
So is basically a mobile broadband sim with calling as well.
Thanks bigjeremy.Thats a shame .
Hope this one turns up last one never arrived..

Yes, but bear in mind the standard EE rates of 30p/min, 12p/text and I couldn't see a price for data

So if the text costs 12p could I top-up 12p to get £10 PSN credit (joke - I know I couldn't top-up just 12p X))
