I had previously been a loyal customer of three; I left them once before (on good terms) only because I found a better deal. So based on my previous good experience of Three I had no hesitation in returning to them. Sadly second time around and the service is dire. I started having problems with my mobile phone (iPhone) very early on in the contract, phone kept freezing and calls kept dropping, texts sending multiple times even though an alert popped up stating message failed to send. I phoned Three Customer Services several times on this issue within the first 12 months; each time they fobbed me off telling me I need to do a factory reset, reboot or install new software. Despite all of this the problems did not go away. My phone contract is now 1yr and 39 days which means that my 1 yr Apple warranty has lapsed but I am still within my 2 year warranty with Three (as I found out today). To rectify the issues which as mentioned have been on-going for the past year; three are now telling me that I need to take my phone to Apple and pay the £300 to have it repaired and only then will they re-imburse me under warranty if the fault is not down to damage. Yet had they dealt with the issue correctly when I first reported it my phone could have been repaired without me incurring any up front costs. My dealings with Three since returning to them has shown Three to be incompetent with poor knowledge, bad record keeping and dire customer care (each phone call taking around an hour of my time). I would not recommend Three to anyone and I will be leaving them never to return as as soon as my contract permits.

CAMBRIDGE Three Mobile  
The worst network in the UK and their customer service is waste of time as they made me stay on call for 30 minutes; transfered from one department to another as I'm trying to get PAC Code to transfer my number over to another network but they told me to call back tomorrow so they would give me PAC code, apparently generating this code is rocket science according to three.

Leeds Three Mobile  
you go cheap and you pay the price. Three are cheap for a reason but there's always someone who will bite. I was one of them. Cheap price for internet but connectivity intermittent and unreliable. And when cancelling, expect to be on the phone for some time as they try and try to get you to stay with them, giving excuse after excuse and then saying that there's an early termination fee that they're unable to waive. My recommendation, go with the providers that are most recognisable. They charge more but again, you get what you pay for.

Manchester UK Three Mobile  
Worst service from a service provider. They took my deposit, didnt deliver the phone that I had ordered and no one phones or emails to explain why. I then had to make 5 phone calls to find out what was happening on the 5th call I was told that they had tried to contact me, which was an absolute lie and i told them so. Cancelled my order there and then.

Leicester Three Mobile  
My advice is do NOT sign a contract with three. They have to be the worst phone provider I have ever dealt with.
Cannot sign into account,technical issues, outrageous charging of bills. Completely disgusted..never again

So Three UK think it's alright to offer you a refund one day and then say no sorry our guy was wrong the next day! Their customer care service is shocking, avoid like the plague... They also say they'll cancel your contract months ahead of time but they don't... You'll still need to go through a painstaking conversation with them a month before it should have cancelled :-/ not impressed

DERBY Three Mobile  
The experience with Three has been awful.
I share my experience hoping to avoid the same nightmare to others.
I decided to give a chance and test the mobile broadband. I tried for 13 days but the quality of the network was terrible. I decided therefore to cancel the contract within the 14 days and to return the router. (option allowed by the contract)
The customer service told that there was no problem.
However after few days I received an invoice for more than 28 pounds. (the contract was for 25 pounds per month but I cancelled after 13 days due to the terrible quality)
I called the customer service to complain and they told me that the invoice was not for the data but because they still didn't register the return of the router and that I should not worry about it.
Unfortunately someone from the company called me again twice, telling that the invoice was due because I used data for the 13 days.
I clearly stated that it was not logic at all and that despite I could almost not use the system due to the poor service, in the worst case scenario I should have only paid a pro-rata for the 13 days and not double of the amount.
I called back the customer service and they again confirmed me that the amount was not due, and that they were going to take care of it.
Despite of such assurance, I kept receiving calls from another number telling me that the invoice was due!
To be noted that the customer service was using very poor English, difficult to understand.
In summary I absolutely suspect that such practice is close to be illegal and aimed to make money from deceived customers.
In summary:
- the offer to try for 15 days if false!! You will be asked to pay double the amount;
- the service offered by the customer support is extremely poor from a language point of view, and from a content perspective.
- the coverage of the network is absolutely terrible in London and for this poor service Three is trying to charge double of the market price, even during the test period!!
- Avoid Three offers!!!
