13 calls to 3–mobile, 0 calls made on 3–mobile

Follow-up to I Envy People with Phones that work from nathanielho :: blog

Downtime: 42 days

Right today I have submitted my complaint (about 3-mobile service) to Ofcom. Hopefully they will give them a right bashing. Endless calls on behalf of my case have already been made by the wonderful people at The Link (thanks Chris! - and I'm a Carphone customer!).

On another note, today Chris brought in his Vaio and phone cable, and we had a mass phone SIM-unlocking session. The lucky phones were:

The other Chris' SEM K700i (locked on Orange)
Rob's old SEM T610 (locked on Orange)
And my SEM K608i (locked on 3)

Mine was the most experimental (3mobile said they didn't even have codes for it). Seeing that unlocking phones can go wrong. It would literally make or break mine! But success! Chris has saved me a lot of money (that would have gone into 3's pocket - we don't want that do we). And finally my K608i was no longer a glorified glow brick, and works with my Orange SIM.

  1. Conclusion… 3 are cheap, and the reason they are cheap is they are no bloody good! Sticking with Vodafone…

  2. Yeah I'm cheap :(
    But video calling is cheap, MMS is cheap, and mobileTV is a nice novelty (for a day).

    On the plus side I now have an Orange contract SIM (borrowed) to use in my 3branded K608i.

    And I'm getting a nice CSS-25 speakerphone desktop charger :D
