I think this is a deal because:
i) it's for any phone, so even you Apple fans get the 4S
ii) it's £50 more back than TCB
iii) tethered
iv) equivalent to £27 pm
v) One X, 4S, SIII...
vi) SIII seems to be excluded as there is NO pre-order until this deal has expired a day or two.

Also, I want a tethered unlimited deal. I'd rather, like you, 12 months for the same £££ but despite asking have had not response - so here's your chance, vote COLD but give me an option (not o2 or Voda). Please.

Expires in 6 days....2 days before you can order the S3 on the one plan from Three's website. This is a shame because that is the deal i would have gone for if the £160 cashback was still going to be live on the 29th May. Damn it!

It'll go back to 110 which is still pretty decent

Why do you ask about tethering? If you tether your phone to a laptop for example and use data from your contract they don't have any idea that your laptop is then using the data do they? Or am I wrong? So tethering is not like a thing they are giving you, if your phone can do it then it can do it, it's not a service provided by three.

Tethering requires an internet connection and data package, i.e. 500mb, 1gb, or unlimited internet.

you can tether via bluetooth, usb or wifi on some devices.

this transmits your internet package you get and allows the device being tethered to to access the internet, its great.

hehe

lol

Yes, I knew that. I tether my htc desire hd with my laptop all the time. All I am saying is that a phone being able to tether should not be a plus in a contract, because it has absolutely nothing to do with the contract, a phone being able to tether is not down to orange or vodafone for example, it is down to having a data plan and the phone itself being able to tether. Or I could be completely wrong and somehow the mobile phone companies know when data is being used during a tether.

I used PAYG three sim for a month to know first hand experience of coverage and went ahead for one plan when they initially launched. Till date it hasn't let me down & I have tethered data upto 147 GB a month

cool, but H3G has issues with coverage, so the internet sometimes struggles.

AFAIK they will find you out. Also the PCs data may be higher, draining your smaller allowance faster, then costing you MB £. Tethered deals are what I am after, a bargain preferably with unlimited (yes yes, I know only 3 & t-mob do this atm).
You generally have to buy a (tethering) data package, even with the good folk at giffgaff. Seems they can track 'illegal' usage, eventually.,

with three you just call costumer support to add tethering to your contract for a fiver.
that or you use the data but just not too much of it

The One Plan has tethering included for free and it is truly unlimited with no hidden caps in T&Cs. If you live in an area with decent Three coverage (I do) it's an absolutely stunning deal that blows away all the competition.

god i'm so tempted to upgrade to the one plan now!

I have a deal that hasn't turned into a snowball!

My only reservation is, I want a quadcore phone but don't know if to wait for the S3. The S3 has some interesting features, i'm not too sure if the 1X has anything 'cranky' to make it stand out. \
Thoughts?

Please explain, they have the best 3g coverage in the UK.

No upfront cost?

Some airtime providers either block this or drop your speed as a ploy to get you to pay an extra £5 or so a month to include tethering. My iPhone contract on Tesco did this for sure. Not sure about others, I think T-Mobile arent too fussed but not sure.

Despite this being the best deal on Earth, even if it was free on everything forever, there is no way I would go back to 3 by the way. The incompetence of their callcentre "people" is legendary.

I had two contracts with Three, both times they denied to pay Quidco. Since then I decided not to bother using them again.
Good luck to those taking one of their deals b/c of the cashback!

Never used Quidco...

I have just signed up for it but havnt got a clue on what to do...

Can anyone help and point me in the right direction on what to do???

All it does is take me to the 3 store and thats it..

Cheers

1. Clear all 3 cookies.
2. Go to quidco.com.
3. Sign up if needed.
4. Search for 3 mobile.
5. Click on the large cashback button.
6. Buy the deal from the 3 website.
7. Cross your fingers and hope it tracks.

Optional:
Raise a 'missing earnings' enquiry via quidco after a week when it doesnt track and wait for months for the cashback to appear (or sometimes not at all) :-)

If your going for the Iphone 4S note the Quidco T&C's

"Please note to get to the iPhone 4S offer you must search iPhone 4S from the search box when you land on the Three site."

No, all networks block tethering unless allowed. Especially on iPhone plans.

For example, three customers are now redirected to a thethering page.
And with Orange the APN

I can't speak for other devices but I know that my previous iPhone 4 on O2 (without a tethering plan) didn't even display the 'Personal Hotspot' option in 'Settings' unless you added a plan. When I bought the iPhone 4S & moved to Three on The One Plan (which includes tethering), the 'Personal Hotspot' option is now present. That would suggest that the iPhone does know whether or not you have a tethering plan enabled on your contract (unless you JB it of course).

I was a customer of O2 for 9 years and moved to Three and have been majorly impressed with the service and in particular, the data speeds. They are rapid.

The APN is editable or addable on Orange. On Gingerbread, the APN was editable so all you had to do was change the username and password to enable tethering. On ICS, the APN was locked, but again all you had to do was add a new APN with the tethering values.

Every day's a school day! No wonder I could not get my laptop tethered to my phone!oO

The One X is a terribly flawed phone.. I wouldn't take my chances with getting one, and just get the S3.

I've had 2 One X's now, both flawed by manufacturing process (screen problems), multitasking bugs, freezing etc.

HTC have made a good phone, let down by poor manufacturing process and software optimisation.

I think you're wrong. I'm pretty sure they can tell if you tether, otherwise companies like GiffGaff and Vodafone wouldn't ban you from the service for doing so (of which their have been many experiences).

Whether they do this based on usage or something cleverer I'm unsure, but using tethering with a company that does not allow it can and usually will results with you being kicked off the service.

I have a s2 on the one plan .. Tether to my vita .. Tablet and laptop all the time never had a problem .. It even works for the xbox 360 lol..

Amazing.
