Anyone on EE noticing their data disappearing quicker, I get 1 gig and never used to even get close to running out but the last three months I've been running out. I was away for a week last month with data off and still ran out, got the 80% text last night and I'm still a week away from the next bill date.

Come to virgin Sim Only everything unlimited.

My bill is never higher than £14 a month.

If am not in wifi spot for my iPad, use it as a personal hotspot with no issues.

I have three months left on my current contract then I'll be leaving EE, the signal around me is piss poor. Just annoying running out of data every month now when I never used to go above 600mb

Have you got rid of any dodgy apps / reset your phone etc? I started chewing through data on my old phone, turned out to be some kind of software fault.

Used Apple pay today, pretty good.
My phone is always more accessible than getting a card out my wallet

You can't link your oyster to apple pay can you?
Or buy a monthly travelcard to use with your phone?

My iphone 5, the best iphone made IMO started slowly dying within hours after over 2 years. I figured it must have been the battery so I bought a genuine apple replacement off ebay for £10. It caught fire when I turned the phone on….

undeterred I purchased another and the phone has never worked so well with bat power lasting the day.

did it ever occur to you that the battery manufacturers could just print on an apple logo Shocked

and then the ebay sellers could sell them as "genuine" for 1/7 the price of apple themselves Shocked

Look Sweden, I drive an 8 year old ford fiesta with 4 Mitchelin Pilot sport 3s. One of them burst at 70 mph on a dual carriageway yesterday at 8am and I'm still alive to tell the tale. £10 battery legitimacy issues matter but not -that- much.

unsure how you living your life on the edge at all times is in any way related to you believing genuine apple batteries can be bought for £10

Have you had screen protectors on? The tempered glass ones do the job with or without case I find.
