What are add-ons?

What are add-ons?

An ‘add-on’ is a bundle of minutes, texts or data, that you can buy using your top-up credit or debit/credit card, 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 pack allowances.

Don’t worry, if you ever run out of data you won’t start being charged any further - we will 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 either seven or 30 days


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

Remember, you’ll need to have credit available to buy your add-ons.
