Found 27th Jun 2017
Firstly, apologies for the title, kind of butchered it a bit , Anyways! I'm always on the hunt for the best sim only deals to fill our wonderful Sim-Only megathread here, and spotted these on the hunt.

mobilephonesdirect have a few offers with Three, that when combined with their cashback, results in a tidy little saving! I spotted some that may be of interest;


2. Three (12mo) - 200m, Unltd txt, UNLIMITED 4G, £24PM (Poss £16PM when cashback deducted)


4. Three (12mo) - 600m, Ultd txt, 30GB 4G, £19PM (Poss £16 when cashback deducted - AUTO cashback, no mail redemption)

It's worth noting that deals 1 - 3 are mail in redemption for the cashback. The process is straightforward, but not automatic. You can look at the process below:

If your deal included a cash back by redemption or a line rental discount this will be shown on your order confirmation email. Your cash back is claimable in five instalments over the initial duration of the airtime agreement. Cash back on 12 month contracts must be claimed during billing months 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 from the date of connection or upgrade. Cash back on 18 and 24 month contracts is claimed during billing months 6, 9, 12, 15 and 18 from the date of connection or upgrade.

To claim, simply fill out our cash back claims form which can be found in the ‘My Account’ section of the website.

Please note that claims must be received within 60 days from the date shown on the mobile bill you provide to be valid.

Once approved cash back is paid within 14 working days directly into your bank account as supplied by you at the point of ordering.

Please note that you cannot claim a cash back if you have cancelled your order, disconnected the SIM card from the network, or you have changed your price plan with us, or with the network. The mobile bill you provide to us to at the point of your claim must be in relation to the mobile number we connected or upgraded. If you ported a different number to your new contract, the bills then need to show the number you have ported to.

If your contract includes automatic-cashback, you do not have to claim for this and it will be paid within 90 days of connection.

Cashback will become void for customers who disconnect from the network prior to their payment being made.

some good deals here nice one.
Cheers, Thanks
Ooh is it worth it. I'm out of my existing contract and paying £20/mo for unlimited data, 200 mins, unlimited texts. Is it worth lower overall monthlies with cashback if I have to manually claim them?
Just thought I would add that I've used mobile phones direct loads the last few years for my contracts and never had an issue with cashback.
Jump through this hoop, that hoop and the other one and you may get your cashback.. It boggles the brain why they don't just say you can have it for this but if you disconnect before the agreed time you will be billed the full amount.
was offered retention deal of unlimited minutes and texts and 30gb data no tethering for £15
I am already on three, how can I change my contract to one of these, Ive been with three 12 years and on a rolling monthly contract. Do i have to cancel and start a new contract with them? Or can I move over.
what are 3's retention deals like at the moment?

Missus is on a 600 mins, unltd texts, 4 gb data £15 per month atm (she had 6 months half price).

coming to an end July 3rd - fancies a galaxy s7 which is on 3 for £24.99 a month via mobilephonesdirect. Will 3 price match?

Also my Mum is sat on a £14 per month deal with 600 mins, 5000 texts and 4gb data came off contract back in April. She likes the use in Europe but could do with a price cap which 3 don't offer (got stung on a few occasions on the ferry etc she's not very tecchy)... thinking ID mobile.

I am also in a similar deal. If you wish to keep your number you need to move your current contract over to PAYG, purchase the new sim and then ask them to transfer your old number over. No PAC code as staying in the same company. I am waiting for mine to change to PAYG on 11th before switching.
Best thing about these is you'll absolutely never run out of data, the network coverage is so bad you'll never actually be able to use any.

Amazing how many times I hear this, was skeptical myself a few years back but after being with three for 4 years I have never had a problem. I live in a fairly rural town and even here we get 4G. I really don't think there's much of an issue and you can always use the coverage checker. Ps. I don't work for Three!

Also, customer service I have never had a problem with, they have always been most useful unlike some horror stories I hear about with other companies.

I agree with you iv'e been with them nearly 10yrs and never had any problems with them me the wife my son and daughter and now even my granddaughters are all on Three and none of us have had any problem so where Megaman666 gets that infomation i like to know because he must be living in the 90s when Three where bad.

Have you contacted them to find out why you have no signal because it could be one of there masts have gone down and they don't know about it...Contact them though Tweeter or Facebook if you have one of them you will get an answer quite quick if you don't want to contact custom service.
Same here. Been with 3 for 3 years never any issues.
Not really the place for this, but I've found nothing searching... I've got an old One Plan that I *still* haven't shifted (£30PCM rolling, with 600m/AYCE everything else). It's too much.

I am in Nottingham, there's a lot of old buildings and underground places. I get sod all signal in a *lot* of these. I get no signal at all in [a place near Hinckley] where my GF lives; she gets low to moderate signal on EE (IPhone 4 (temp)) Is this because of the lack of 2G on Three, or just a general persistent nuisance with phones?

That in mind, what's the best way out of this situ? I don't know if a switch to EE will help. I use quite a bit of data but probably never near 30GB. I probably only use about 200m/PCM at the moment.

Any help gladly received as it's 9mo or more I've been paying 30PCM for not very much!
Can I use the included 30gb data for tethering?

I called EE when I was switching last time and they gave me my full previous year's data usage. Generally it wasn't over 6GB except for a couple of months, so I knew I didn't need the 20GB I was paying for, and went for an 8GB. Bonza!


Have 600min/unlim. text/8GB data for £12 on a month-to-month contract - happy with that, not even come close to any of the limits.
Damn mail in cashback is still a thing. I'd genuinely rather pay a few quid extra each month than the pressure of remembering five timed mail ins. (Didn't vote either way - I understand it'll suit some)

​Vodafone seem to do some generous bundles for the money.
Few deals been posted here recently and they tend to have a good signal most places.

​Submit online and payment by Bacs, easier than the CPW group cashbacks
Nice deal !!!
three 4g 30gb 600 mins unlimited texts for £18 plus £65 cash back from TopCashback = £12.58pm

..another option
Also three 4g 8gb 600 mins unlimited texts for £12 plus £55 cash back from TopCashback = £7.42 pm

Pretty good deal for 8gb
Just to let people know that the £25 PAYG AYCE data package is being abolished in August and shifted from £25 to a new £35 package. At £25 you now only get 30GB
I will order 4GB DATA from QUIDCO (9£ per month) and £40 cashback = 5.66 pm with no reminders for cashback

Thanks.

Can I use the included 30gb data for tethering?


Yes you can. If you follow the link you'll notice that this card's has got an "advanced" tarif, that on 3 allows you to do tethering.
Had a quick look but didn't see anything that said unlimited data
I got 600 minutes,8GB of data,and unlimited text Sim Only last Friday from the Three Store in Leeds Trinity for £12.My contract was up in a month.I had the same deal previously for £16 per month.

I called Three retentions,and they wouldn't give me a better deal.I popped into the Three Store,saw this advertised,and the young lad in the shop swapped it to the cheaper deal on the spot.I was delighted.
Does anyone know how these cashback deals work if you order multiple lines? Do you get the cashback for every line or just once?
Will theses sims work on a mobile dongal
