Edited by:"inamra"Found 8th Sep
Just ordered this for my sister who will be going back to Uni in September. Not sure how strict the validation on the student email address is - it seems to accept anything.

More data than I could find anywhere else for the price, hopefully it helps someone out.

That happens with any mobile network because there about a billion variables involved in how strong your phone signal is. Unfortunately that makes anecdotal evidence pretty useless.

Can save more by going through TopCashBack. Get £65 cashback without having to send off any bills or have any faff.

Birings the 12 month price down to £12.60 ish / month.

Just buy cheapest payg 3 card and you can sign to 30GB £16 contract as an additional line...

Can you post your My3 showing this so other people can ask them to match it?

I moved to 3 from talktalk (vodafone), got a good deal but 3s signal coverage is awful, no signal in places I had H+ with talktalk. Will be moving asap.

I just got a 12GB advanced plan for £12 by taking it as a second line with a PAYG sim. So it probably does work.

If you have an email with a a subdomain such as @unimail.uni.ac.uk it won't allow you to do it via the web

You typed it or copy & paste your email address? Could be something wrong with the site.

Anyone know if it's possible to move to this plan if you're an existing Three customer?

Thanks

I pay £15 for unlimited data. Only 200 minutes but thats 200 minutes more than what I use my phone for.

The website says you can as long as you're past your minimum term. I'm going to go in store and get myself on it.

I was also offered this when I tried to cancel, but fancied a different sim only contract with 30gb tethering.

Got cashback from 3 from TopCashBack with no trouble took a while but got it in the end.
If you expect to get it straight away you won't on anything you have to wait at least 2 months to get it.

It did. Choose plan, enter payg number and £2 off a month

i just did it with a unused payg number, still works
Edited by: "seaniboy" 8th Sep

Tried to get this for my daughter with cashback but it didn't track so went for the £18 per month 30gb unlimited calls / text and £45 tracked via tcb bringing it down to £14.25 per month.

Did you check area coverage before moving to Three? I get great signal in my area fine

Link no longer works anyway, add plan to basket it doesn't ask for email and adds at full price not the discounted price. I've hit expired, someone else needs to do the same

People make assumptions, it's terrible all the networks own shops won't give a free payg sim out unless you top up... how are you meant to test coverage to then contract yourself to them ? If you need to move asap then waiting on a free sim from a website/phone order is a joke...

So I've just been to the shop and they couldn't work out how to upgrade me. Might be worth waiting a couple of days for them to sort their systems out

I had same problem not accepting my uni email so I called them and took 5 mins he said there's a problem with the system but all went through after calling them

That's odd. Did they give you a reason why they couldn't upgrade? In the meantime, I logged into My 3 account online and clicked on the 'Change Price Plan' option as I'm out of my minimum term and on a rolling monthly contract atm with Three. It won't let me change my plan to anything, saying "You'll need to wait 72 hours before you can change your price plan. You can also buy a short-term add-on if you need extra data immediately.".

I am considering this but based on my experience 3 hasn't had the best coverage near me.

Got the deal on both accounts..Thanks OP
