Three has unveiled brand-new Essentials plans. The cynic in me wonders if this is a sign of things to come (namely that one day the current ‘Advanced’ plans may be phased out, or made a lot more expensive), but the optimist hopes it’s just a way to offer better value… [Click for more]
From July 14th 2016 O2 is extending its O2 Travel service, which gives fixed-price daily roaming in Europe, to 30 new destinations beyond Europe. This means that the £1.99 daily charge for access to ‘unlimited’* data, 120 minutes of calls and 120 texts in Europe, now covers more countries, with… [Click for more]
You’ve got to admit, the way EE rolled out and tested VoLTE (what it calls, 4G Calling) since last year has been rather unique. But today, it has been made available throughout EE’s 4G network. As an early Christmas present, iPhone users were given a taste of VoLTE last year,… [Click for more]
Now it’s the turn of EE to offer a bargain SIM-only plan (great for Three users considering options)
As those letters to Three customers on older tariffs continue to land on doormats up and down the country, it’s the turn of EE to offer a deal that could offer an alternative to phoning up and haggling for a discount. (This follows the amazing deal that Vodafone advertised primarily to… [Click for more]
Three’s 321 PAYG plan was an incredible offering for users, and one of its killer features was unlimited data with a simple £15 add-on. As part of Jackson’s plan to make everything right within Three, the cost of getting all-you-can-eat data increased to £20 last August. And from March 31st 2016,… [Click for more]
Life is never dull with Three. One minute they’re upsetting hundreds of thousands of users with letters warning of huge impending price increases, the next they’re rolling out a game changing update to the Three inTouch app that will make a massive difference to most 4G handsets. The big news last year… [Click for more]
EE will next week (February 10th) launch updated SIM only plans, ahead of further changes to handset contracts that will be made around April. The highest SIM only plan now tops out at 16GB, instead of 10GB previously, and most plans gain EU roaming for calls and texts – but not… [Click for more]
This evening I heard about a rather interesting mobile broadband deal from Three. Following an purchase of the SIM for £10, which comes with 1GB of 4G data pre-loaded, you’ll then enjoy 200MB of data free every month. There’s no need to worry about exceeding your allowance and running up a bill because everything stops… [Click for more]
I knew the One Plan was dead. I knew I’d be getting ‘the letter’ one day. But despite knowing my days were numbered (arguably, I’ve lasted longer than some given I’ve been out of contract for well over a year), I still didn’t expect this. EDIT 5th February 2016: Read my update… [Click for more]
EE is probably regretting ever offering customers a free Power Bars, creating no end of problems and negative publicity since they were first introduced in April. Since then, there have been reports of potential and actual fire-related incidents, that prompted a recall of an entire batch of portable chargers (marked E1-06) in… [Click for more]
[Updated] On EE? Remember the VoLTE settings that the iPhone 6 got recently? Well, you might just be able to use it right now!
Last week, iPhone users on Three got a significant update that gave access to VoLTE (aka Three’s ‘Super Voice’ network). In that same update came VoLTE support for EE too. So far, EE hasn’t launched its 4G voice service, or even given a launch date. [UPDATED 14th FEBRUARY 2016: All iPhone 6/6s users… [Click for more]
iPhone 6 users on Three can now get VoLTE access and improved coverage – just in time for Christmas!
Apple is currently rolling out the latest iOS 9.2 update, and it should bring plenty of festive cheer (and improved coverage) for Three users with an iPhone 6, 6 plus, 6s or 6s plus. Along with the new OS update comes a carrier settings update (23.1) which allows Three subscribers to use VoLTE by accessing… [Click for more]
It’s finally going to happen, after a number of hurdles and delays that nearly made it look like it would never happen. But, at last, the EU will soon be treated ‘as one’ for mobile phone users who live within the EU themselves. From July 2017, it will be possible to… [Click for more]
I don’t know why EE keeps offering them, but who is going to complain? No sooner are the last of the Summer SIMs with their 200GB of free data (subject to a single £10 top-up) starting to expire, than a new promotion has started. And the deal is the same as… [Click for more]
Following my news a couple of weeks ago that stated Three would switch on its 800MHz network to launch Voice over LTE (VoLTE) on September 10th (which it did, for Galaxy S5 owners), the network has today confirmed some more details. However, before everyone gets too excited, there’s still a long… [Click for more]
Rejoice people, because I’ve heard a rumour that September 10th marks the day that Three finally puts its 800MHz spectrum into service. 50% of the UK will get access from day one, rising to 65% by the end of the year. The rest will come in 2016. Even if you’re… [Click for more]
Feel at Home, the service that allows Three customers to roam in selected countries and only pay the same rates as at home, has resulted in a staggering £1.3bn in roaming charges being saved since its introduction two years ago. This equates to around £330 per customer, per year – with an… [Click for more]
No sooner has the Glastonbury themed promotion ended, but EE launches a new one. This time to celebrate Summer.
