Three upgrade sim only 4gb, unlimited mins & txt - Retention deal - £9

260
LocalFound 12th Mar 2016
after being on phone for 30 mins. was offered 4 GB data plus unlimited mins txt from £14, then £12 and eventually £9 repeatedly insisting on pac code.

12 month contract, with tethering

though, I did have two contracts to cancel at the time but only this one got £9 while the other I settled at £12.

Update 16/3/16 - tried to cancel my £12 contract and chance getting the £9 for my other contract. The lady initially said fine but minutes later came back saying system won't allow as its expired. Hard to accept whether she's telling the truth. Guess its time to expire this deal.

Yes
I have it too. Was told it's a new offer but only after I'd gone through to the cancellation person. The first guy I spoke to was trying to do anything to keep me without offering me any deals.
Is this 4gb tethering with unlimited internet or just 4gb internet inclusive of all data use?
I was offered this last week for £8/month and took it.

I was told all 03 and 08 numbers are now included in the Minutes, plus you can use your Minutes in most of Europe.

Need to book a holiday to use it in Europe now...
When I left 3 end of 2015 they didnt offer any good retention deals, now they're offering retention deals galore lol. I called them up recently to ask if they could give me good deal as I was previously a customer since 2004 or 2005 ( I cant remember exact year) anyways.. they refused to give me a good deal.
Lucky you - keep sharing

Its probably 4 gb of data use (internet if you prefer) and you can tether within this 4gb. In other words, the tethering allowance is part of the 4gb data allowance.
No deals for me despite many years as a customer, offered unlimited everything for £20, instead of the regular £30, but I moved to BT 20g unlimited calls & texts for £16 p/mth.....they couldn't/wouldn't match that so I'm off.
I left 3 this year after being with them since 2006. EE take better care of their customers!
I called up to cancel the other day and got offered nothing like this at all, must be luck depending on who you get. The guy I spoke to was based in India...

I think it's tethering within the 4gb.
Holy moly, I settled on this for £15 a month on a rolling one month contract. Will ring them now and cancel and try to bring it down to a tenner.
Two months ago my wife settled through retentions @ £15 pm for unlimited min and txt, 8 GB Data ( didn't ask for tethering so not sure I have it), monthly rolling.
tethering is included on all new Three plans.
I'm on SIM only - if I tried to cancel, would I be offered this too?

So long as it's a contract sim and eligible for an upgrade (out of contract)
Cancelled my contract last week, 3 tried their very best to keep me on the above deal but for £11.00 p/m

If they'd offered £9.00 I'd have stayed
I get 600 mins, unlimited texts and unlimited data for £12.90 a month. Been on it years so probably not a good idea to shift from it.

​You will probably get kick off that soon. I'm on the same deal and have been for 2 years but got my letter this week saying they were. kicking of it as they are. removing all their legacy plans.

I was offered this deal but for £12. Pondered over it for a day then called them to take it out only to be told that deal had expired. Had a mare this week trying to get any deal out if them. Guess I will be leaving.

They settled for £12 with me. I'm okay with that though. 4GB internet, lots of minutes and texts.
Anyone still on the one plan?
Myself and partner both asked for packing code I got 7 quid for 1gb 600 mins since I have bt wifi everywhere I need for data. She got offered 14 quid for 2 gb of data so went with ee which is a better signal where she works anyway. If they didn't have the three abroad I would have left them Ashwell tbh greedy ****.

It probably this -

9 x £27.99 (9 months full price) + 3 x £13.99 (3 months half price) - £10 (quidco) - £192 (redemption) / 12 (months) = £7.65

I did the same!
i had two contracts, the one month rolling One Plan that was about to be cancelled (i got the dreaded letter) and a £9.99 600min/1gb contract. Called to cancel both, the first department offered £12 per month unltd min/4gb (on a 12 month contract) for my non-One-Plan sim, and wouldn't go lower. They offered £16 per month unlt min/8gb (on a one month rolling contract) for my One Plan sim. Told them to disconnect me and went through to the cancellations dept, who stuck to their guns on the £16 offer for my One Plan sim but were able to drop the other contract to £9 per month as described in the original post.

He did say the £9 p/mnth deal was account specific. He wasnt able to add that deal to my One Plan sim.

Hope that helps!
Hmmm - I have two sim only accounts with 3, both out of contract, looks good, and tbh I have never had any problems with 3.
I didn't get much help on a retention side ended up £11pm 2GB data 200mins, but as that's more than I use anyway it'll do for the time being
