Just been on the phone to 3 as I'm due for upgrade. They offered me for £8 per month on a 12 month contract;


200 MINS
3000 TEXTS
2GB INTERNET

12 MONTH FLEXIBLE - which means I can upgrade my contract at any time -

I said I would think about it to make sure it's a good deal but Its the best deal I can find out there at the minute

they will charge you fortune when you tell them to upgrade before the end of 12 month
It is much better use other network rather than 3
#7
It's not bad but you may be asked to pay up the remainder of the term if you upgrade before the 12 month term is up...
banned#8
You WON'T be asked to pay the remainder of the flex 12 month contract.

A bit harsh voting cold. It's a fair offer.

I was on an offer very like this and was able to upgrade after only a couple of months to an iPhone 4 for the same price as a new customer - I didn't have to pay the reminder of it off, they simply changed it over.

Possibly harsh from your point. but..................
Two reason I voted cold.
first it only 200 xnet min (usually ttree give 500 xnet min for upgrade contract)
second three horrible customer service and bad signal reception (mostly dropping calls)

Majority of people would agree that it is not a HOT Deal as this is a retention offer and not for everyone but it may help out people there who are looking to upgrade on 3. As long as this Community Site's purpose does not get defeated it is fine to post these type of offers here cuz after all We Members do help each other by means of information sharing.

I never had any problem with 3 since 2004. I had my upgrade (yes, I haggled a lot and had even received PAC) last year and 3 gave me 500 min X-net, unlimited 3 to 3, 2.5GB internet (2GB+500MB), 10 picture mail messages and phone of the year HTC Desire. yeah well it is on 24 months contract but for £10 a month can't be wrong. That was a year ago when HTC Desire was a craze whereas I saw few deals posted on HUKD that Phones4U is selling HTC Desire for £240 handset only.

I told my friend who was looking to upgrade and he then managed to convince 3 and got the same deal as I do but with addition of 2000 landline minutes plus some international calling minutes.

Basically, many people do not like 3G as a operator and thus vote cold or leave negative comments. Touchwood, never had any problem with their customer service either.

I have heard that GiffGaff is going to stop unlimited internet from April. It may be a rumour but better to find out before you jump on starside.

You right london farmer, posting retaintion deals help us to get right deal.

I am not agree with this quote. My mobile call dropping constantly since few months with three. Three engineer still working on it, Shame....... I am tired with my mobile as i cant talk properly with others even three customer service.
All share own good/bad experience here. You have no problem with them so possibly you voted hot or Left positive comment. This doesn't mean you promote three here and who left negative comment or voted cold does not mean that they don't like them.

they are for people who just use their standard payg package and for those that purchase the £5 goodybag, but if you purchase the £10 goodybag or above you will still get unlimited data as part of the package
