EE Pay-as-you-go costs
Each Synapptic device is supplied with an EE pay-as-you SIM with £10 credit. Customers can swap this with their own SIM, purchase one of our monthly Synapptic Vodafone Call Plans or continue to use the pay-as-you-go SIM.
Please see the PDF document (EE-pay-as-you-go-pricing.pdf) under the user guides tab for full details of the charges for the PAYG SIM. A point to note is that PAYG gives you the worst value for money - monthly contracts are much better. Eg. our £15 per month plan gives unlimited free calls and unlimited free texts!
The headline PAYG prices are:
- Calls to other mobiles and landlines: 35p per minute.
- Text messages to mobiles: 15p per message.
Topping up the PAYG SIM card
Please see the below link for full details of how to top up.
The best way is to register a debit card with EE. With this in place you can then just send a text message to 150 or call 150 and follow an automated service. In addition to this, you can top-up via the EE website or buy a top-up voucher at a shop, post office or cash machine.
To register a debit card with EE either use the MyEE website or the MyEE app. This is a one-off process that will last until the card expires.
