“Best Network 2005?”

published 26/03/2005

Customer service, cheapish

bad coverage, £15.00 min top up

Having decided it was time to purchase a camera phone, i went along to carphone warehouse and had a bit of a mooch about. Now i wasnt really sure what i wanted but i saw a sign advertising the 7600 (nokia) for 29.99 as long as you went to the "3" network. Now that was a bargain i could not miss...

I first had a brush with 3 back in January 2004 when I purchased a Motorola A835 on Videotalk 500. It was a mixed experience and to cut a long story short I terminated my account with them. Well things change and due to absolute necessity, I purchased an NEC e616v on 3 PAYG and I've been...

Constrictive Top-Ups, horrid ring-tones, no games....

I bought myself a ThreePay mobile phone for Christmas, as my current phone is over 5 years old and not very healthy. Being on a T-mobile Pay-as-you-go set-up a straight forward upgrade would cost me about £50 and require moving back onto a contract (18 months for T-mobile!), which I didn't want...

3 is the tariff I have had with my last two mobile phones; the NEC e313 and the Motorola A835 (Both of which I have also reviewed if you fancy taking a look-see?). It is, so far, the best tariff I have seen so far. As I am too young to have a contract phone, I have to go for the pay-as-you-go...

Can be pricey.

-ThreePay- -About Three- Three are the newest phone network around at the moment and use the highest technology in phones to run their network. It's called 3G and means 'third generation' which basically means it uses mostly video technology. For example all the entertainment on 3 is video based...

Can work out cheaper

Customer support, the way the top-up works

A few months ago, I switched over to 3Pay, the pay as you go service from 3. Part the reason was my little bro talking me into it and partly becuase I wanted a camera phone (see my revew on the NEC e313). I've now decided that this was sheer madness on my part. 3 have one of the worst top up...

When I first went to UK as a student, I was looking at the most widely known networks to buy a mobile number. I initially joined Vodafone but they were too expensive for international and local calls with Pay As You Go programmes. When I decided to buy a new phone I was thinking about changing my...

“3's contract”

published 19/09/2008

None

Weird billing with unfair charges

Beware of international directory number and 3's billing They have a weird number called international directory which automotically sits at the top position in every 3 handset with some short key. Now, look at the gimmick. This number is not a free number like a normal 3 customer service number...

Could save you money

Could cost you a lot of money and time.

I decided, after years on pay as you go mobile phones, to take out a contract as 3 had some excellent special offers available and I felt that it would be much easier to keep in touch with my parents who I had recently moved away from. When I contacted 3 they offered me the latest handset at the...

The thing that attracted me to this deal was the £45 for the NEC e616v deal. Which looked good for a pay as you go deal. You get £15 credit with the phone, which alone is hard to use. For some reason i could never text or call anybody and the credit was activated. The credit system is also very...

Hi, My datacard that I pay 50 GBP / month for, stopped working and there is nobody to assist me with that I have been trying for a week now. I am actually now calling THREE network for the fifth time today and have been redirected between two departments like 8 times. This is a nightmare Don't be lured by these few pounds less because this is nothing compared to what You are likely to go through very soon By the way, I had THREE phone before and returned it 5 days later. The prices of services were ridiculous Thanks for listening Mike
