    Getting attention of EE retentions 14th Jul 19 at 8:06 PM
    Does anyone know a way to get hold of EE retentions?

    I would like to join ee and was about to take out a 30 day sim only contract and then call up retentions. It looks like they dont do 30 day contracts now though, so would getting a payg sim and then trying to port out work? Other ideas welcome!

    Ideally would like them to match an id mobile contract 4gb for 8 etc....

    You're unlikely to be able to talk to retentions without already being a customer and being put through to them by a rep when asking for a PAC. (I'm curious how it works with the new system of PAC request by SMS - maybe they call you..?)

    You could try it with a PAYG SIM service, perhaps someone has experience...

    Must it specifically be EE or would a piggyback on EE network suffice? Like Plusnet, or Asda to name but two options

    That price quoted is for a 30 day rolling monthly contract.
