Grrrr bloody EE My dad has a PAYG phone. Very little used but he tries to make a call every month or so to keep it active. It's really for emergencies - he's in his 80s. His £10 credit has disappeared because they have some sort of renewing contract thing that sucks you PAYG credit unless you turn this function off (they don't make this clear enough). Complaints about this seem to be all over their forums. Load of bolix. I'm fed up with trying to sort it out to be honest. I'm on Giffgaff and I reckon a £6 a month rolling contract would solve this activity issue, but does anyone have any recommendations based on a similar scenario? Just needs a few minutes a month and txt ability no data required and I'm hoping the non smartphone he has is unlocked so we can use that.
