What are add-ons?

An ‘add-on’ is a bundle of minutes, texts or data that you can buy using your debit or credit card or top-up credit, to give you better value than our standard rates.

You can buy an add-on if you run out of one or more of your allowances.

Don’t worry, if you ever run out of data we won’t charge you any further – we’ll let you know once you run out and give you an option to buy more, if you need it.


    add-ons start as soon as you buy them and last for 7 or 30 days


    if part of your pack or plan runs out, you’ll still be able to buy minutes, texts or data add-ons to see you through until your new pack or plan starts


    we’ll text you when your add-on has run out or come to the end of its seven or 30-day period


    you can buy an add-on by logging into My EE, downloading the My EE app, texting ADDONS to 150 or calling 150
