Help with your account

Nominate a friend or family member to act as an authorised user to look after your account. All you need to do is set a password, and they'll be able to access your details securely.

Free directory enquiries

A free directory enquiries service (195) is available to blind and other disabled customers who find it difficult to use a phone book. It's a very straightforward service: call 195 from your EE phone to register.

Operator-connected calls

If you use our 195 service to get a phone number the operator can also connect any standard call for you for free.

Bills, etc

Don't worry if you have difficulty reading your bill – we can provide you with a choice of Braille or large print versions on request. You can also get all of our other EE literature in a choice of the following formats on request:

  • Braille 
  • Large print 
  • Audio tape
  • Electronic text format – particularly useful if you have sight difficulties and own a computer and 'text to speech' software

Call customer services on 150 from your EE phone, or 07953 966 250 from any other phone or +447953 966 250 from abroad to request your bill in one of these formats.

British Sign Language service

British Sign Language users can contact us - using a sign language interpreter - through the InterpretersLive! service. This service is available 8am to 8pm every day.

Priority Fault Repair Service

We know how important your mobile is when you rely on it for health or mobility reasons. With our Priority Fault Repair Service we try to get your phone back to you within seven days - rather than 14 for our standard service - if your phone is in warranty and develops a fault.

This service is for customers who have an illness or disability and who are reliant on their mobile to keep in touch with carers and health professionals. To help us to see if you qualify for this service, register your disability on our confidential form

Power of attorney and legal POA

You should contact customer services for support.

emergencySMS

The emergencySMS service lets hearing and speech-impaired customers in the UK send a text message to the UK 999 service where it will be passed to the police, ambulance, fire rescue, or coastguard.

To register:

  • send the word 'register' in a text to 999
  • you'll receive texts about the service
  • when you've read these, reply by sending 'yes' in a text to 999
  • you'll then receive a text telling you your mobile phone is registered or if there is a problem with your registration
