Giving 3 mobile the 2–fingers

Follow-up to 13 calls to 3–mobile, 0 calls made on 3–mobile from nathanielho :: blog

Unlocked by Chris Pursell and holding his spare Orange SIM.

Yey! free from SIM-locks! (can't be unlocked my arse!) This is definately something 3 mobile doesn't want to see. Contract Orange SIM inside thanks to Chris Purssell (voted Bloke of the Week and Benefactor of the Month by this website). Yeah, Chris has random spare SIMs with 200 free mins to donate to charity cases like me.

This is the first time the phone has worked in 43-days – no thanks to monkeys at 3.

  1. Yay for Purssell!
    I've been following your Three doldrums, and am glad your phone is back in the action.
    You're a very good (bad) advert for Three!! I hope Ofcom sort them out good and proper for you.

  2. Yeah they say the big companies get worried when people slag them off on blogs. Because blogs are more personal, and its a real testament of how good a product or service is.

    But the thing with human nature is that, when something goes wrong, you moan about it on average to 10 people. And when something is good and working fine, people usually only mention it to a few people.
    Diagnosis: Humans like to Moan!

    Nice pics on your site btw.

  3. I've never had personal experience with three, but the general consensus is that their deals are good, their service is shite. I've had O2 online for a couple of years and have no complaints.

  4. Well every time my phone broke, they replaced it. This is a freak problem, but still not acceptable.
    Yeah O2 are good, I've always had an O2 PAYG as a spare. They're reliable and best of all: they don't (usually) sim-lock their phones :D

    In fact 3-mobiles have always used the O2 2G network as a secondary network when there's no 3 UMTS signal.
