Samsung S7 (32gb) 12 month Contract. £32 per month. Three

45
Found 11th Jan
I just got back from work and received this letter from three.

It has a list of other SIMO 12 month options but had this Samsung S7 deal. I think it's pretty good. Especially for 12 months.

AYCE MINS AND TXTS
4GB DATA
On feel at home plan (or advanced I think it's called)

They've got an iPhone 7 (32gb) with same call /data allowance for £36 per month.

Apparently these are "exclusive to me" but, seriously, I spend around a tenner a month. I very much doubt I've contributed greatly to be honoured a good deal!

This is a great price heat for that.but s8 due out in the next couple of months so these deals will be common place.

That's a great deal.

​all phones bought on the three network are unlocked

No way this is 12 month contract for £32 with no upfront cost... something is not right here

I'm going to call them first thing tomorrow. It definitely says 12 month on the plans that were on offer on the letter.

Three wouldn't make any money out of this deal if it were 12m duration contract. Website suggests it will be 24 months. Hope I'm wrong.

Can you scan or take a photo of the letter and post it for us to have a look at, please?

I'll do it first thing mate.

3 don't offer 12 month contracts on handsets, only on SIM only deals.

I've added the letter as the main image. Hope this answers some contract length questions.

I'll provide an update once I've spoken to them. It's in writing so I'm hoping they'll stick to their word.

Cheers chap just checking pricespy cheapest brand new price for handset 32g is 499 so outstanding deal

Both of those deals are unbelievable. IPhone 7 32gb that costs about £430 over the year. That phone sells for 500 quid at least. So you'd be getting 12 months worth of 4gb data for free and 70 quid in your pocket.

Seems too good to be true these. Either something happens after the 12 months of there's an upfront cost missing surely?

Terrible network who employ clowns as customer service agents.Have many a friend who have been lied to by these sharks and as for the network itself its terrible especially in rural areas.

U have to make sure it's 12 months and not saying from 12 month which only applies to simo

​Although not so good in buildings I've found Three to be outstanding in rural areas.

For me the only better network's would be EE and BT as Vodafone and O2 only have GPRS and Edge in a lot of rural places.

I have driven from Poole to Harlow and also Basildon to Norwich with my Internet radio (in high quality) only dropping out for less than 2mins once on each journey (cannot see Vodafone or O2 doing that (I have Vodafone for a works phone and wife and friends have O2).

Ive just got off the phone with them and they are adamant this deal does not exist. They assume it is a typo and should read 24 months as they don't have any handset plans on 12 month contracts.

It's in writing though. Does that help my case here? It has a ref number at the top.

I would like to think so but it doesn't help me as its not addressed to me. In addition the letter isn't a binding contract (not an expert) so they can just say no...i suspect. I've been on a 30 day rolling for a while now awaiting a decent deal and thought this was it but alas my wait goes on.

Cheers for the info. I'm going to try them now. I'll send another post shortly.

Or if curiosity, would you have picked the S7 or iPhone deal?

Sorry folks

Talk to the manager and try again. You might get it. No harm in trying one more time.

​At least you checked the facts, many would be stubborn and stand by that letter, getting upset at doubters. A huge shame it's not a real deal.

I'm under the impression they issued the letter with the 'typo' on purpose to get me/others to move to another, more expensive, contract. They even had a designated line for letter recipients!
Their other SIMO deals on the letter are good (and legit) though - no denying that.
Three's network isn't even that great in our home but the deal was to good to ignore.

I would send a copy of the letter and a complaint to Three!

Three does sometime do good deals, my friend works there and tells me there are sometimes "glitch" deals, but they tend to honour those until a certain date.

But yes, it was for 24 months, but for like.. £14 per month for a really good phone that was worth about £400?

Bought 2 and sold the phones and gave my parents the sims - pretty much a 2 year free contract ^^

Hmm.. I hope you didn't ask "was it a typo?"
