Deactivation of Clone Phone app
On 30 April 2016, the Clone Phone app was deactivated. This affects customers who have Clone Phone Lite, Clone Phone Loaded and Clone Phone Fully Loaded.
Please note, the technical glitch that some customers have been experiencing regarding resetting their password has now been resolved and all customers are able to access their stored data.
What this means for my bill
If you have Clone Phone Loaded you'll no longer see the ‘Clone Phone Loaded’ charge on your bill.
If you have Clone Phone Fully Loaded, you'll continue to see ‘Clone Phone Fully Loaded’ on your bill, as the insurance will remain on your account – the only thing affected is the app.
As a Fully Loaded customer, you’ll already have access to the Premium Version of Lookout which provides 2GB of storage, all you need to do is download and activate the Lookout app.
If you have any other questions or concerns, please call 150 from your EE phone.
What this means for my data
If you wish to continue backing up your data after 30 April, you'll need to find a new storage solution. Below are links to some storage solutions available elsewhere and, although they aren’t associated with EE directly, they are all brands with experience in this area.
