"Moderator: Sedge on September 28, 2011
@ Rhys – Currently we don’t offer all-you-can-eat data on our SIM only plans. If you want all-you-can-eat data I’d recommend cancelling your SIM 300 (You’ll need to give 30 days notice if you’ve already signed up!) and joining The One Plan or a Talk or Text plans. You’ll need to cancel your SIM only plan by calling 333."

So it's TRULY unlimited except ...
as long as you don't use your phone as a modem or use the SIM in a broadband dongle

So no doubt next we'll get LITERALLY unlimted and soon after that ABSOLUTELY unlimited - none of which comes anywhere close to having no limits.

Mere marketing bull

The thing is, you can get BT and NNTP apps for tablets and phones.

How are they ever going to know if the SIM card finds itself tethered to another box?

Ooooh, I expect I could stream quite a bit to a phone. Let's see. an HD webcam feed at 10MByte/minute. Leave that running on your phone for a day and you'd gobble up 14GB or 400+GB per month.
How long until you found their "truly unlimited" deal had an upper limit - or you got canned? ;) I'd guess less than a week before they switched you off.

Yes as long as it's through your mobile phone...No tethering.

The fact that the offer is good is completely negated by the fact the company offering it is 3.

Not voted either way.

We haven't seen the small print for exclusions and limitations as yet but, expanding on your suggestion, how about the "Zero" contract SIM? No minimum monthly cost and no minutes or texts included (obviously) but unlimited data add-on and appropriate apps may mean a handy package for £3pm.

I suspect this may just be a product to "convert" a data component of a tariff to an "unlimited" data component so one has to already be paying for a data component.

The staff haven't been informed as the add-on isn't available yet. Try after 7th October. :)

How do they even know if you're tethering? I tethered my HTC Touch Pro 2 for two years and Vodafone never said a word to me about it.

How much data did you use a month? 1-2GB wont get you told off. 5GB in a few days, that will.
#23
How do they know the data usage is tethered? I didn't think they could tell, all they could do is modify the software on the phones they sell to block the facility.
#24
Used it to download from Rapidshare when I had no home internet for a while. Talking a few gigs in a week sometimes. I always had to pay for going over my contract limits obviously, but no more than if I was using the phones own internet features.


Edit: We are talking about a Windows Mobile 6 phone here, the amount of software hacking, cracking and development was astounding. Maybe the program I had was just awesome? ^_^

I would love to use this in a dongle for my netbook, for watching youtube mainly. If I told them it was for my phone, is there any way they would know I was actually using it for my netbook?

I think there seems to be quite allot of confusion regarding the Opening Post.

Its not only £3 extra a month, its £3 extra ON TOP OF the £5.11 for the 2gb allowance.

So £8.11 extra in total a month. Unless your price plan already includes the former £5.11 charge.

I wouldn't touch 3 mobile with a horrible stick. Their customer service is absolutley shocking, and dodgy sales/retention staff are of the devil. Even their complains department is shoddy

"legal".....!!!!!!!.....only against t&c's with most networks...but not with three...have been tethering & streaming music constantly with no probs....unless this deal states otherwise.....(_;)
#29
In my experience, Three limited connectivity and 48 bytes per second is the limit of all limits!

I've got their Three One Plan sim. Pay monthly for £25 a month. Tethered to laptop via iPhone 4, get 1.5-2 megabit/s in Wembley area. Downloaded over 10 gig with no issues. Pretty fast & good connection.

Edit: Plus 2000 minutes to any network, 5000 texts & 5000 3-to-3 minutes.

The £5.11 2GB works fine tethering from an old knacker Sony Ericson W910i with a usb cable. Same SIM does NOT work in a mi-fi, they know and block it.

That's how you choose to read it (and it may well turn out to be correct) but we don't have the full detail so it's not possible to assert that such is definitely the case.

The linked page for further info states "Three announced this morning that all its pay monthly customers would be offered the option of upgrading their contracts to include unlimited all you can eat internet for as little as £3 per month (on top of their existing package).

Now we've received confirmation from Three's PR department that (a) the offer is available on SIM only packages (b) the offer is available on 30 day contracts.
"

It is perfectly possible to read that as allowing a pay monthly customer on a Zero contract (it said all pay monthly customers) to upgrade that contract to include unlimited internet for £3 on top of the current nil cost of their package. The details of the deal may well mean that they won't permit that (and I don't expect they will) BUT we don't have the details so your interpretation is speculation and not the definitive statement of fact you claim it to be.

There is a way they can tell you are tethering.
If you are jailbroken you can install an app called PDA net that hides the tether;)

I have no such issues with my All you can eat for £25pm 3 tariff. I often wirelessly tether my Dell Streak or OSF to my laptop or tablet when I need to. Having moved from Voda to 3 in March I'm a happy customer, the issue is people are happier to complain than recommend. I think that's just the 'British' way. ;)

I've never understood all the hatred for 3. I went with them several years ago because they were cheap; why is it that if their coverage is so rubbish, that it doesn't seem to matter where I go my phone seems to work (often with full bars) when others (especially Vodafone) are totally losing signal?
