Yep, it's my main phone. I'm not sure in retrospect that was the best thing to do, but it will work fine. I did do the initial tests in a Sony Z3 but then I'd be ~£11 worse off keeping the EE contract going.
Each individual saving I'm making isn't necessary once the FTTC went, but when you add them up it gets meaningful.
Ditch FTTC, £35. Ditch landline £14. Ditch EE £10.51.Total £59.51. 3 Sim, £20. £40 in pocket near as dammit. If necessary for Chromecast to the TV I can simply USB tether the phone to the router upstairs.
When current expenditure, which can only increase, exceeds income as a pensioner, it's worth a try. Worst I have to do is buy a lower allowance Sim from somewhere for such occasions, maybe a PAYG that can lapse between such "emergency use".
I tested Chromecast for a while with this sim in the Z3 in the room and it was fine. In the Huawei there shouldn't be a problem.

If you never think of anything off the wall, you'll never think of anything original.
