Our monthly student discount is open to new customers and to customers who are already with us and want to upgrade.

This offer is available on all individual phone and SIM Only plans, apart from 4GEE Max Annual Upgrade plans and SIM Only plans already on special offer (as marked by an offer end date). This offer excludes 4GEE WiFi and tablet plans.

By taking this offer, you'll automatically receive your 500MB data safety net each month and won’t need to do anything else to activate it.

If you bought somewhere other than the EE website - including an EE store, over the phone with an EE advisor or through one of our indirect partners like Carphone Warehouse - you won’t be able to receive a 20 per cent discount but can still get a 500MB student data safety net – an extra 500MB of data every month, totally free. To get this:

  1. 1

    text STUDENT to 150

  2. 2

    follow the instructions to add this to your account

What happens to my 500MB data safety net when I want to upgrade?

What happens to my 500MB data safety net when I want to upgrade?

If you’ve already added your 500MB data safety net to your plan but have now decided to upgrade, you’ve got a few different options to choose from.

Online:

The easiest option is to upgrade online, where you’ll receive a 20 per cent student discount off the monthly cost of your plan. Your 500MB data safety net will then be automatically added to your account and will run for the length of your new contract. You'll need a UNiDAYS discount code to do this.

In store or over the phone:

If you upgrade at an EE store or over the phone with an EE advisor, your 500MB data safety net will be automatically re-added to your account and will last for the length of your new contract.

Anywhere else:

If you upgrade anywhere else, like Carphone Warehouse, you'll need to go through the same process you did the first time to add your 500MB data safety net. Text STUDENT to 150 and follow the instructions.

Please note: you must still be a registered and verified member of UNiDAYS at the time you wish to upgrade to continue to be eligible for our student offers, including both the 20 per cent discount and 500MB data safety net. If you are no longer a verified UNiDAYS member, your 500MB data safety net will end and you will no longer be eligible to receive this benefit.

DATA SAFETY NET

New and existing customers, eligible for student offers, get up to 500MB of free data to use each month (the 'Data Safety Net').

Data Safety Net is only available once you’ve used your price plan’s inclusive data allowance. Your Data Safety Net is available to you for up to 30 days or until your next billing date, whichever comes first. Unused Data Safety Net allowances do not roll over; you have to use or lose the data. Data Safety Net allowances cannot be shared, are non-transferrable and there is no cash alternative.

To get your Data Safety Net text STUDENT to 150. You’ll need to follow the link and redemption instructions we supply. Data charges may apply.

Data Safety Net will be automatically removed from your account at the end of your plan’s minimum term.
