"With 3's Flat12 tariff your credit never expires, and its completely free to listen to your voicemail messages in the UK - even when you have no credit."

I remember that the initial credit that comes with 3 mobile pay as you go sims used to expire after so many days, however is it confirmed that this is not the case any more? (I know that credit you top up on 3 doesn't 'expire' now).

mumbojumbo
This comes to £12.42 with postage. Good deal - it's £19.57 at the Carphone Warehouse before £3 Quidco cashback.



Oops, forgot about postage, I'll try to amend the heading!

Voting cold, buying £30 credit that expires in 60 days sounds a bad idea to me.

Voting hot. How can £30 for the cost of £12 be cold??

Agreed

Your basically getting £15 of credit for £5 p/m

Because it expires before most people would use it. If it didn't expire then it would be hot.

If the credit can be used to buy one (or more) of the Mobile Broadband add-ons then it's a great deal.

I see where you got your username from... :thumbsup:

So without postage it’s £9.99 for £30.00 call time @ 12p a minute. So this equates to 4p a minute until the £30.00 runs out. Sounds good to me especially if you have overseas relatives coming to stay :thumbsup: Heat added:thumbsup:
#10
heat added coz this is a good deal! you'd have to be a (moron) to vote cold!
nice find, going on holiday soon, giving one each to my kids so we can keep tabs
#11
Can this be used with a mobile broadband Dongle ??

Or it expires before 3 customers can find a signal.

maybe an attempt at humour based on wildly out of date information/prejudice??

I've been with 3 now for 4 years, and in that time the signal performance has improved beyond recognition. I now get better coverage and signal strength than any of my friends or family on other so-called 'MAIN' networks.

If anyone is thinking of taking this offer up, I would certainly check coverage before you buy - but do not be put off getting a bargain by being given the impression that the signal quality/availability is poor - because it isn't.

OK - rant over.....!
#14
My work colleague says that in Newcastle upon Tyne, the signal strength is very poor (often non existent) on Three.

I guess it depends on where you are - as with all mobile signals. I work in the centre of Newcastle, and only ever have a problem when I'm inside my work building - but that is probably due to a lot of other factors blocking the mobile signal.
As soon as I step outside the building, I'm back up to full strength again.

And remember 3's roaming partner is Orange, so when your out of 3's 3G coverage, it roams onto Orange's 2G network.
#17
I changed my phone's firmware so that I could select 2g/3g or both manually as the 3g signal doesn't exist where I live, the Orange (I presume) signal is brilliant.

When I need 3g services (such as internet) I just switch to the Irish signal :).

Is this really such a good deal?
it cost £9.99 and you get £30 credit, so in other words you are getting a 'one off' triple credit.

Tesco Mobile triple your credit ever time you top up by £15 giving you £45 credit.

so whats a better deal 3' is a one off triple credit or Tesco Mobile's constant triple credit? Do the maths!

get you free sim cards here http://www.tescomobile-freesim.co.uk/?ref=TescoDirect&test=15GBPtopup&format=120x600 :thumbsup:

That free credit is only valid for a month according to the web site :?

Would be better if it was over a longer term.

Nice idea but really.. who uses Tescos mobile? In my experience with these alternative phone suppliers is you'll need all the credit you can get as everyone stops ringing you as it costs them too much :-P

That is a pretty good way to entice new customers though i'll admit..
#22
cold from me, 3 has one of the worst signals, yes i know it depends where you are, but my friend in leicester and london both have horrible problems with trying to call anyone, the signal seems non existent. Still at least its a good deal, shame about the signal, thats it really.

I live in east London and I had to go into my back garden to get a signal at home and I found the signal to be very variable when I was out and about. Luckily for me 3 changed their T&Cs and so I was able to get out of the contract, otherwise I'd have been stuck with their very irritating service.

3 is on my bargepole list.
#24
good timing.. my credit has expired so very useful.. can i have my existing 3 number transfered to this new sim?
#25
mumbojumbo
Best thing to do when you get your sim card is to convert your credit into 3 lots of £10 Stretch add-ons. This will give you 100 minutes a month (worth £12) for 3 months. So you effectively get £36 worth of calls for your £12.42. Or £12 worth of calls per month for £4.14 if you want to look at it that way. :thumbsup:


how do i go about the 3x £10 add ons
#26
Thanks - might have a use for this.

How true. Some people have just got used to saying it now. Bit like the Skoda thing.
It's old hat now.

Oh, one thing to bear in mind is that you do need a 3G compatible phone.

do you also need a mouth and ears ?

Cobblers. It's talk like that that persuaded me to take out my last contract with 3.
It was rubbish the first time and it was no better the second time.
Oh, and I like Skodas.
#30
can this be used overseas? I'm going to NZ next month for 4 weeks and am thinking that this will be cheaper than taking my current PAYE sim.
