I saw this deal on certain forums and didn't believe it and I myself was on the old The Link T&T 600 Nokia 6630 from last November and had already told 3 in very early October to cancel my contract come early November.
Then I saw this deal people were getting on the forums not understanding I called up 3 DIRECT and enquire about it...
Talk and Text 100mins and 100sms every month for £20/month on a 12month contract
If they for-go getting a new handset their account would be credited £200 (+vat = £235) come the start of the new T&T 200 contract, which i triple confirmed and ensured I noted the support persons name, time and date.
The RESULT of this is that so long as I do not go outside of inclusive mins/sms during the 12months come November 2007 I will only have to pay £5 and nothing else (12x£20 = £240, £235 credit = £5 to pay)
Apprantely this offer is new as of the 5th of October and no idea how long it will last.
I would of posted this as a Hot Deal but it only applies to current Three customers approaching the end of their contract so only applies to a small section of the community.
I hope this helps some people.
