No worries - my back is broad! Contract deals aren't everyone's cup of tea, but this is for one of my kids, and although she looks after her stuff, both her last 2 contract phones have failed during the contract, and been replaced for free, which is a bonus. If it helps someone, great.

If you went through TCB it's been £13 for a long time. Posted recently for £12 as well less than 2 weeks ago so this isn't a hot deal at all. Sorry.
It was £12 few weeks ago - not sure how it's a deal now. Yes, still a good price.

Lasted a week before I phoned up and cancelled based on 14day return for distant seller regs. The signal on three is rubbish based on my experience. I travel all over London (zone 1-5) and the signal was patchy and Internet slow unless you had perfect 4g signal. Those who say they get good signal on three must live right under a mast and never move. I would advise anyone thinking of moving to three, or any network, to buy a paygo sim and check the coverage (the coverage maps are wrong and frequently said I should get full indoor signal when I didn’t). It will save you a lot of hassle.wifi calling is nice on three but I feel slightly ripped off to be calling over WiFi when I’m paying for cell service.

Make your own mind up and see other posts.



same thing happened with me. You phone up to cancel within 14 days. They wont do anything. They wont tell you. They will just deduct as much money as they can from your account, give you a bad credit rating and then get a debt collection company to continue chasing for payments that should have been cancelled but they deliberately fail to act on telephone requests. They will only act on written cancellations . All this for a £7 deal!! really the company is scum.

Took a rolling contract. Dropping signal and internet connection on daily basis. They run off Three network so I thought I'd have the same quality for less money. Unfortunately it wasn't the case.

The data signal is not so good. It's not the same signal as they piggyback …The data signal is not so good. It's not the same signal as they piggyback off of EE, the signal isn't the full whack signal you get with EE or BT. I've found it iffy all over the country, so has my daughter.


The only disadvantage with piggy back carriers is you may not have access to the same data speeds / features (VOLTE, 4G++, etc) and you may get lower priority data speeds / delayed texts over exceptionally congested signal areas. However this can also work in your favor if the contract the piggy backer has gives them increased priority.
Signal wise it should be identical. Any signal disparity is more likely caused by your handset(s) than the network, although Plusnet adds an extra "step" which increases the possibility of network outages. (If Plusnet goes down EE customers are unaffected but if EE goes down then Plusnet customers are still affected alongside EE customers.)

They piggy back of EE but guess what EE is owned by BT retail about time they just renamed EE BT Mobile and done with it

Please be aware of porting charges!!!

I took out a 30 day contract with ID a few months back while I waited for a great 12 month deal to come along. I've now switched but my final bill included £7.24 of porting charges. First mobile operator who's charged me to transfer my phone number. 😞
staff at store would not help. gave the wrong number to call. need to find the correct one myself.

Customer service was terrible. just request pac code. and they hanged up. no call back whatsoever. will never get close to carphonewarehouse.
poor company . I agree. Watch your credit score

How so, was it bad coverage? I thought three's network coverage was great.


Some people just like a whinge, I wouldn't worry

Coverage is so subjective it's pointless debating the relative merits. If people are happy with the coverage they get, great. But what's the point of saying "vodaphone's coverage is awesome, EE's is terrible" when it's just what works for them and, in general, EE have much better coverage of the UK?

Could some cold voter please post a contact without buying phone upfront …Could some cold voter please post a contact without buying phone upfront for less per month please?


As already stated, buy the phone on a credit card (thus no up front) & a sim only. Don't get conned by the 'free phone' marketing lies - it is not free - nowhere near it! Speaking from personal experience, I would buy the vastly superior asian model from e2global on credit card (for section 75) - would be less than £400 (nearer £300 when I bought the wife's).

The CEX deal is like New and not New went in to my local and it had marks, didn’t fancy dishing out £315 upfront. Just fancied a phone under £30 per month. Phone arrived as stated 2pm

If however you're already a virgin mobile customer, you can likely negotiate an even better deal via the retention team.

This is a great deal, especially the fact that it still applies even if you're not a Virgin broadband customer.
