Cancel UK mobile contract


DTMark
 Share

Question

I have an EE mobile contract which ends this month. So I can change it or cancel it.

The cheapest plan is £16 per month for 12 months with 1GB of data.

Here in Italy you can have PAYG with 100GB per month, 5G, roaming and international calls for 9.99 EUR.

https://www.iliad.it/offerta-iliad-flash100-5G-999.html

Prices in the UK are extortionate.

At the moment I can't see any reason to keep the UK SIM and plan to cancel it.

I have a VOIP landline number and a VOIP app on my mobile so people calling from the UK call a UK number. So they're not going to be forced to pay more to call an international one. I got that when those were being given away so it costs me about a fiver a year to top up.

I'm just wondering if I'll lose anything that I haven't foreseen by which time it will be too late to go back.

Can anyone think of anything..

The only thing I've been able to think of is that if I put an Italian SIM in my mobile, replacing the soon-to-die UK EE SIM, it's possible that things like the "Play Store" will default to Italian apps.

Which is good in that I have to put those onto a separate phone - things like the apps for the Post Office and the energy company - at the moment since the apps are not available in the UK region.

But may mean there are things I use which are UK based to which I will no longer have access.

Why do you have to stay with EE? There are lots of better deals than that £16 1GB around.

Just one example is Three at a similar price £17.50 (over 2 years after first 6 months half price)

6 months half price - £20 from month 7

£20.00
Unlimited data
£10.00 a month*

24 month Advanced plan

That’s very good for unlimited.  Might cancel my broadband and set up a hotspot instead O.o

It's what I've used since 2019 and the 6 months half price offer isn't just for new customers I got it when I renewed. The tethering works great, I've used it for catch up on the smart TV.

I was with Three directly, until a year ago, when I got walloped with a massive call bill.  I moved, and went with a linked MVNO in Smarty...  An unlimited 30 day rolling contract for twenty quid a month...or 50Gb for £12 p/m..

SMARTY and Three are the same firm using the same network.

Yep...they're a MVNO - a mobile virtual network operator...they piggyback off Three's network.  Much like GiffGaff & 02.

Even though they're owned by the big telecoms for some reason companies like Plusnet and Tesco Mobile are about a third of the price. 

Btw there's no point trying to get EE to price match, they won't.

Indeed. UK contract cancelled.

7,99 EUR/mo Italian SIM ordered.

The UK prices for these things are incredibly high.

GiffGaff are cheaper than O2 because they spend hardly any money on customer service. Nearly all customer service is done online by volunteers who get phone credit in return.

I once posted a question on the GiffGaff site. In less than a minute I had 2 replies.

Unlimited calls and 300 texts a month for £6. iirc, I also get 0.5gb of data but I never use that.
