    3 and their atrocious customer "SERVICE" centre are a complete joke! I don't know anyone who has stayed with them - clueless!

    3 is BAD. stay well away from 3!! trust me!
    the phones and tariffs may well SEEM TO BE really cheap....but they are not. the tariffs actually work out more expensive than PAYG. the phones are almost always tied to the 3 networks so they practically force you to only have their media from their website on their phones. the phones always have many of their features crippled
    also, the 3 network is NOTORIOUS for dropped calls and poor signal.
    again, stay well away from 3! even vodafone are better....and that is really saying something.

    Can a 3 phone be unlocked and used on any network?
    I was told by the local agent that the frequency used is different and would not work on any other network.
    I see that several are for sale on Ebay as supposedley unlocked. Perhaps this is why they are for sale. They are no good.
    Has anyone tried?

    I bought my Nokia 7600 on april of last year. A month later, the sim card got blocked. I called 3s customer service, they asked for all my details and they said my new sim card would be delivered to my home a week later. 2 weeks passed by and i called again. They said they didnt have my details, so i gave them again. I had to call them back 6 other times. :mad: On OCTOBER, after i unlocked my phone, changed networks and gave up about my replacing sim card, 3s sim card arrived. 5 MONTHS AFTER I FIRST CALLED THEM!

    They have been fine for me over the past 6 months. Sometimes calls don't go through first time but that's about it.

    im into my second year as a 3 customer and whilst at first it was crap, the service has got loads better and i hardly ever go out of a service area, and not very often drop calls. The cost was the main reason for me to go with them and it has stayed fairly cheap throughout, as long as i dont download any videos or games fromthem. I agree with the customer service thing, was on the phone for bloody ages once trying to change my address then get a bill sent. Guess thats what happens when you put a call centre in a country where enlgish is a second language!

    Apart from that, its alright, dont know of anyone who offers a cheaper service.

    my wife had a 3 contract and i can honestly say that the customer service is abolutely appalling. to many reasons to list here but suffice to say it took the threat of court action for them to accept that i wasnt going to pay for a service that they werent providing. the phone has been boxed up now for 5 months awaiting collection from 3!. From my personal experience i wouldnt recommend 3 to my worst enemy .
