Hey all.

I'm just looking at switching to one of the providers that offer wifi text and calls as we're in a bit of a mobile dead-spot. 3/Three have such an option but can anyone tell me if it works with pay-as-you-go and sim-with-credit plans please. Here's a link to the products I'm looking at for info; http://www.three.co.uk/Store/SIM/Pay_As_You_Go

Thanks :)

Thanks for your answer. All our phones are unlocked - is that the only criteria or do you know if there's a list of phones that are compatible with the service?

Just check your phone can download the app - "ThreeinTouch" I have it on a Moto G2 (on a 3 contract) - only need to use it when I'm at my mother's. I've found on occasions that I miss noticing a message as the app runs in parallel to the standard messaging system and if you're on the borderline of having a signal or not then some texts come through the standard system and some through the app. Other than that it works well.

Thanks for your response. This would be my first option but they are too expensive - I've just done a quick search and they're coming up as around £150.

That's really helpful. Thank you. Is your phoned locked to the 3 network? If it's just android and unlocked then that's the same as our phones. Not sure which phone we'll start with but it's probably going to be a Samsung S6 and/or Moto G3.

It's unlocked. Bought it from Tesco - was never a 3 phone.

If a G2 works I'm sure a G3 will!

3 payg credit doesnt last long, payg on 3 is a farce, you may as well get a better pay monthly deal elsewhere.

Alternatively go for a three, sim only deal on a monthly basis. You can increase or decrease or cancel your plan each month depending on your usage and requirements. They have some good sim only deals and there have been some great deals here on hukd for three too.
