You can also pick up pre-paid 4G data SIM cards in eBay and Amazon for between 20 and 30.

These are valid for three months and/or 6GB of data.

They seem to be the result of dealers box breaking modems/USB stick packs up.

They work well - have bought.used a couple myself.

Will EE data sims be enabled to do voice traffic? Or is it better to wait until October 30th and see if new sims appear on Ebay?

Free EE PAYG SIM cards can now be ordered for delivery to a UK address from:

http://shop.ee.co.uk/free-sim/

If anyone needs a UK address, I might be able to help if you can reciprocate the favour (depending on your country).

I'd need one, but I haven't anything to give you in exchange... (well, I've a spare TIM standard sim, but it would be a pain activating it without you being physically here)

I think this time will be harder to get one (there's still the 'physical shop' option )

When I received my EE PAYG nano-SIMs, I tried to use one of them, but it said "Inactive SIM" on one phone and just a generic "No Service" message on my iPhone. I spoke to EE who said they were experiencing widespread problems with activation of the new PAYG SIM cards, and they would fix it within a day or two. I have just received an e-mail from EE, full of marketing-style HTML and images suggesting it is sent to large numbers of customers, saying:
We have been made aware of a problem when you tried to use your nano SIM card, which may have meant you were unable to top up and use it. Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience this has caused you. The issue was due to a system error which has now been resolved. We will have your SIM up and working within 1-2 days and a 5 credit will be applied to say thank you for your patience. We hope you will enjoy your new EE SIM.
It's not clear whether the free credit will apply only to the one nano-SIM that I tried to use or whether it will also apply to the three other SIM cards that I ordered.

Sorry about that. I am often missing notifications to subscribed threads, and now it seems of PMs as well. I had already reported this problem in this thread but the issue persists. I have now replied to your PM.
