EE phone deals on the iPhone 8

Thanks to the spectacle that was the iPhone X launch, the reception for the iPhone 8 was a little bit flat.

FAQ on EE phone deals

What are the benefits of EE?

The standout point here is going to be EE's speeds. Coming in as the UK's fastest 4G network, EE beats all others for speedy downloads and scrolling.

On top of that EE offers a host of benefits, whether that's the ability to share your data, set data caps or get free subscriptions to the likes of Apple Music or Amazon.

Can I keep my number when I switch to EE?

You sure can, if you switch over to an EE phone deal and want to keep your old number, then simply call your old network, get a PAC code and transition it over. 

If you were previously on EE, you can still keep your number but it is slightly more complicated. They won't let you keep your number, so you have to use this workaround. Buy a free pay-as-you-go SIM from any other network and tell your network that you're moving. 

They'll release the PAC code, which you then give to the substitute network. Then, you immediately get another PAC code from them. Take that to your old network, and they'll move your number to your new contract. Long winded, but easier than learning a new number!

Can I use my EE phone abroad?

EE offers free roaming charges in the EU with any EE phone deal. That means you can still use your allowances while you're away in the EU. If you go outside of the EU, America, Asia etc then you will have to pay for your use of data, calls and texts while abroad.
