I swore, after my horrendous experience with their PAYG service (see my op), that I'd never go with 3 again. Then when my contract was up for renewal in March my fiancée made a rather generous offer to get me a contract for my birthday. I wanted to fo back with O2 as I've never had any real...

3's price packages change every year, at the time of writing this review Videotalk 500 offers you 400 minutes of calls and 100 text messages; however please bare in mind that within the next 6 months this will change. As a result of this I'm focusing more on the network. At the time of writing...

I have been with Hutchinson Three for 2 years now and can definitely recommend them. One of the things the detractors raise about Three is handsets, that argument is now very much out of date. When I first became a Three customer in 2003 I had an NEC e606 handset, one of the first generation 3G...

First of all, I've been with 3 for as long as they've been around. In the formative years, the quality of calls and video was atrocious. however in the last coupl eof years they seem to have pulled their socks up and upgraded their call quality. Or that Three are now using more O2 transmitters...

I joined 3 (pay monthly) from T-Mobile pay as you go 6 months back. I am completely satisfied with their service, the free phone and the tariff. I think they provide one of the cheapest tariffs. Yet the service is very good. I used the phone in South, South-East and South West region and never...

I joined three two months ago against all the advice of the people that seem to know about three. Am i glad i didn't listen!! I was told that the reception is poor, customer services are not much good and the phones are not much good, either. I cannot agree with any of these statements. Firstly,i...

I am now into my 3rd month with this company and what a 3 months it has been. When I was looking for a new phone this offer was just too much for me to resist, I would get a free Nokia 7600 Video phone, 500 free minutes to any network any time of the day and loads of accesseries including...

I moved from Vodafone to 3 last year, mainly for their super-cheap tariffs, but also because their handsets had improved somewhat from when I last considered them. I signed up for a 12-month Talk and Text 500 contract, giving me 500 cross-network any time minutes and 100 texts per month. All this...

Don\'t believe the bad things people say about Three - I was put off for years but I am so glad that I finally switched over. When three first launched in the UK, there were limited handsets and people generally were not ready to embrace the next generation of mobile technology. Nowadays, the...
