The best EE phone deals in October 2020

EE has managed to build itself a reputation of the best network in the UK, racking up awards, accolades and the position of the UK's fastest 4G network, so with that in mind, EE phone deals will be an obvious choice for many.

Competing with Vodafone, Three and O2 as one of the four main networks, EE has managed to stand tall above the rest and remains the go-to choice for many. Most of that is down to the speeds available but that isn't the only benefit.

With all EE phone deals, customers get the ability to gift data to other EE customers, call via Wi-Fi and depending on what kind of plan you go for, get data-free access to a range of subscription services.

But with all of these benefits and its sparkling reputation, EE can often become one of the pricier networks to be on, that's why you need to shop around. Heading straight to EE's website will likely hit you with some larger monthly costs.

Instead, many 3rd party retailers -, Carphone Warehouse et al - will be where you can find the bargain price points and big data plans. Below you will find both a price comparison chart for the world's best smartphones and some individual options for EE phone deals on a range of handsets.

And if you find yourself unsure if EE is the network you want to be on, head on over to our guide to mobile phone deals to compare all of the available networks in one go.

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.

Can I get unlimited data EE phone deals?

Yes, you can. EE is one of many networks to now offer unlimited data plans. You can get it on both a phone contract or an EE SIM only deal but with EE already being quite a pricey network, you may see a steep price rise for going all out on data.

Can I get an EE phone deal with no upfront costs?

There are plenty of EE offers than lack that starting spend! In fact, phone contracts with no upfront costs are a frequent sight in the phone market. Obviously as soon as you cut upfront costs, the monthly cost does tend to receive a bump. But if you're lucky it could end up being a complete bargain.
