Swapping from EE

I have 2 EE contracts coming to an end. We are not huge users, and BT sim only is a big saving for us. I will have to get my phones unlocked I assume, and get a PAC code. I hate change, and really don't want to switch, but £35 a month is not to be sniffed at. I suppose my question is, has anybody switched from EE to BT and wished they hadn't? The BT guy who tried to talk me into switching concerned me a little when he said I would notice the difference in speed whilst on internet. Thank you

Re: Swapping from EE

I switched from EE to BT without issues or regret, coverage is the same.
Some EE plans come with the faster 4G speeds but BT Plus and some Simo plans come with that by default, so speed won't be an issue.

The only feature I miss is the data gifting but It's rare I go near my allowance so not really a big deal.

Re: Swapping from EE

Thanks for reply, that is good to hear...I very rarely get 4g anyway, and as long as it is workable, I'm not too bothered, I am not on it a huge amount, hence I want to save a bit. Thank you

Hi - if you have iPhone on EE then move to BT Mobile there is no Visual VM with BT. Otherwise I moved to BT Mobile & all is great as also double data & fastest service (with Plus)  are great benefits.

I moved from EE to Plusnet Mobile then onto BT Mobile. No issues apart from the lack of visual voicemail others have mentioned and to be honest, it ain't a deal breaker and I don't miss it.

The £35 you mention, is that what you will save or the cost of the two new sims?

£35 seems a lot if you can't really get 4G where you are and don't use much data.

Re: Swapping from EE

BT own EE, and BT Mobile uses the EE network, so the only difference is the package/pricing.

Yes, it's a £35 saving for the 2 sins, with 5 x more data!!

Hi, I know they use the same, but was a little concerned when BT said it was a little slower than EE

Re: Swapping from EE

AFAIK BT mobile doesn't provide EEs 4G+, but only of relevance to power users.

If you see my earlier post you can have the faster speeds on some plans or with BT Plus, it's a free feature of BT plus if the mobile plan doesn't include it.
