    You should be able to get your current allowance for around 10 a month (or just under), the really good deals are offered after you tell them you're leaving and ask for your PAC to do so.

    Dial 150 opt 1 - 4 - 2 iirc.

    I pay 8.99 with EE for unlimited calls, unlimited texts and 4 gb of data.
    I googled another company doing a similar deal, rang EE for a PAC code and they matched it. took a 5 minute phone call, very simple.
    The best portion of your life will be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with someone who matters to you.

    I actually managed to get it for 8, but as there's a small amount of luck at the exact price offered when a person calls so I thought it safer to just say 10 or under.

    Shows as 17 with 9 of loyalty discount in MyEE.

    A current similar deal that the OP could quote is 3.5GB for 8.00 from PlusNet via uSwitch

    I went SIM only as I didn't want to change phone of number. I don't use mobile much, only for texts and some calls. I got a SIM only deal for 4 per month - unlimited texts and calls plus 2GB. This is with EE.
    Shows on bill as 11, but with loyalty discount of 7.

    Find the best deal you can anywhere else for the amount of data you want, and call EE to leave, and bash the retentions team over the head with your deal, and see if they can beat it.
    I did this a couple of months ago and got 6GB per month for 12, just about matching a 3 deal. If you're actually prepared to leave it makes the negotiating much easier, and the pressure's on them!

    Just thought I would update you all, I rang EE and got the same cover as I had on contract for sim only at 9 a month, I was paying 40.99. I am happy with that and saving 32 per month
