Cheap Tariffs

You can forgive consumers for being slightly sceptical of a newcomer to the mobile phone market place. After all, with such trusted giants as Vodafone, T-Mobile, Orange and O2 all delaying their 3G networks, despite paying gargantuan premiums for the licenses, what could possibly be the advantage...

Cheap tariffs

Customer service, handset

July the 19th 2006 and I am sat in a hotel lobby in London waiting for a glass of wine and to be checked into my room. I think it's fair to say I wasn't in the best of moods and my phone rings; the young man on the phone tells me he is calling on behalf of the '3' network and has some offers to...

“3 Mobile Broadband”

published 12/11/2008

That one is a bit of a struggle

It doesn't work, Customer service

Well it has been a little over 1 years since I have written a review for this site and the only reason I am writing this one is to try and prevent anyone from going through what I have Around 3 months ago I obtained an 18 month contract for 3's mobile broadband service. The reasoning being that I...

Satisfactory

Cheap to join

Quality of service is abysmal

I joined the 3 network in August, taking advantage of the 1p NEC e808 from OneStopPhoneShop (see my other ops for reviews of both). The idea of video calling was tremendously exciting and I was looking forward to trying out the new technology. It seemed like a real leap forward in mobile...

In May 2008, my fiancée and I both signed up to 18 month contracts with Three. At the time we were both quite open about what phone we wanted, what type of contract we were looking for etc. We went with an extremely open mind and the actual cost wasn’t a huge issue. We went into a Three store on...

Walkie Talkies are much better

I can honestly say I have no good words to say about this company. Although, the sales pitch from the advisor in the 3 store was brilliant. He promised the best technology (coverage not a problem because where they haven't got service then O2 will be on hand), a really great phone (Motorola Razr...

Where to start? I have never felt the urge to write such a negative review until I had the misfortune of being enticed by 3's cheap mobile plans. The advantage of 3 is that their phones and call/text bundles tend to be reasonably good value for money. However, the reason is that their phones are...

Cheap cross network calls

Customer service

I have been with Three on and off since shortly after there launch when i purchased a 3-pay phone to try the network out. At first, they appeared to offer so much and the calls were very cheap. The advantages of 3G were also on offer and 3 were the first 3G network launched in the UK...

Far too many things! Appalling.

Now it isn't very often I feel so negatively about a company as I do about Hutchinson 3G mobile. And as a result this is quite long and I apologize in advance. But before I begin with the bad points, here is more about the overall situation with them. ~ What prompted us to take on the contract ~...

One of the younger Networks in the UK, Three was launched a few years back with mobile video calls being pushed as one of their big selling points. The fact that you had to carry around a very large phone that didn't have many other features wasn't advertised, nor was the iffy coverage that saw...

Cheap initially

Didnt want to help when things went wrong

I hadn't the 3 mobile network a second thought until I met my partner. I use Virgin personally and am very happy with them considering I bought my phone almost 7 years ago and have never ever had a problem with it or the network coverage. I did consider switching to 3 a year ago when I discovered...

Why I'm on Three Let me start by saying that I have very mixed emotions for Three. I love them sometimes but others I swear I could punch a wall when I think of them or call them up. I am on three basically because when I moved to the UK two years ago they were the best company to offer my mother...
