- Anyone moved to EE?
I pay £24/mo for a Nokia 920, a crapload of minutes and texts (I forget how many) and 2Gb data. Reception is pretty good for me, it seems to be more consistent than previous Gs. I get one or two bars wherever I go in and around Cardiff, but it’s ALWAYS one or two bars (excpet in the city centre where it’s more), it doesn’t fade in and out like a poor 3G signal does, and data seems unaffected by only having one bar. Speeds are still almost as good as full bars, which is to say very high and consistent.Posted 4 years ago
Well, I already have an iphone 5. They did just call back to state I could only have 750mb data per month though, although my average usage is reported to be 400mb per month. Not too bothered as my phone connects to my home and work wifi to negate that, PLUS i have a work iphone 4 if need be.
I pay £36 a month now, they’ll stick with that and honour the 15 months remaining on my contract, unlimited calls and texts.
I’m struggling to see what could go wrong at this point….
Oh and I’m in London 🙂Posted 4 years agowwaswasSubscriber
I was offered a free upgrade from T-Mobile to EE that would include 4G etc.
seemed silly not to as it’s the same transmitters etc.
Only issue is that the fast broadband means that I use more data as you can just download so much more in the same amount of time compared with 3g.Posted 4 years agoDobboMember
Also look at T-Mobile they use the EE network and are owned by EE, I found them cheaper for a SIM only deal. £11 a month for 1GB 500 mins and unlimited texts. I was going to go Giffgaff but the coverage is crap where I am.
Stuck the SIM in my new Nexus 4 and I was off straight away.Posted 4 years ago
I’m with them you have a fast connection sometimes but you can’t use it as they have data limits which get eaten up quickly streaming hd
That’s normal, not awful.
I was on Orange and I renewed with a 920 but the shop guy said it would be expensive to get 4G. However EE called me and said I could get four times my data with 4G and pay £2 less.
I think EE are trying to get people onto EE from the older brands, so you may be in luck there.Posted 4 years ago
Good morning Dobbo! Indeed ’tis Stan here. Good to know you are still about – how’s life, all good? What are riding these days – still in touch with Chopper?
Back OT – I decided against this after googling some reviews of EE. The most popular complain seems to be a lack of signal strength/any signal at all when moving to EE – I cannot be assed with that, and am not desparate for the speed anyway.Posted 4 years agobikebouyMember
Yup, MrsBouy got one of those Bloomberry Q10 thingumybobs on EE about 2 months ago. Phones fine if you are into that kind of thing, EE is a little quicker in 4G mode but you still can’t get a decent 3G signal in That Canary Wharf 🙄 so we have to travel out of our enclave into Town or Sarf Casrt where 3G is an aspiration rather than reality.. 4G.. no hope down there, nope none at all.
As for deals with EE, she go a decent upgrade and much lower monthlies and.. wait for it… a new modem for home..
so far, so good.Posted 4 years agobensalesMember
Thoughts on EE then?
If I gave my thoughts on EE I’d trip every swear filter this place has, and get banned within 30 seconds flat.
Suffice to say, I felt that strongly about them, I paid over £600 to buy out the two contracts I had with them, and switched to Giffgaff. I’d been an Orange customer for ten years by this point.Posted 4 years agowoody74Subscriber
I found EE to be pretty good as you also pick up T mobile and Orange networks. What I didn’t find good was the data limit with 4G. The main benefit of 4G is when you download things, yes website pages are quicker but maybe by only 1 second. It is very easy to blow through 1.5GB and then they charge a fortune. I switched back to T Mobile unlimited as EE just cost me more and was fast but limited what I could download. i should say that I was planning on tethering my iPhone to my computer so I could ditch the broadband in the officePosted 4 years agoMcHamishMember
After being on O2 for years I switched to EE last September.
No signal in my office in the middle of Canary Wharf and 3G just doesn’t work in some areas in London despite having 3-4 bars (Waterloo is one example). It struggles to find a 3G signal on most of my train commute.
I never had these problems on O2…perhaps I just happen to commute and work in areas that aren’t great for EE.Posted 4 years agobwfc4eva868Member
Missus did Orange to EE 4G when her IPhone broke after 9 months. Now has a Galaxy S3 and likes it.Posted 4 years ago
No problems with EE. I’m on Orange and Previously T mobile. No problems. In the middle of Darwen Lancashire I have full signal and full 3.5 G ( H+) and missus gets 4G signal in Darwen even though the masts are in Manchester (20 miles away) and Preston ( 10 miles away)
