Monkey men run UK Phone network

Follow-up to Giving 3 mobile the 2–fingers from nathanielho :: blog

… result? no service for 47 days! Now That's Customer Satisfaction!

Hey don't call 0870 numbers, especially if its to the mongs at 3-mobile. Call the customer services on 0800 358 6795. And make them pay.
Rachel suggested that I should threaten to call them on their 0800 number for every second I'm disconnected. So that's

47 days = 1128 hrs = 67,680mins

even at a lowly cost of 2p/min

that's a phone bill of 67,680×2p = 1353
(thanks Chris S for spotting the mistake)

Hmmm also sent a complaint letter to their Hutchison 3 UK HQ in Maidenhead and a few phone calls. Turns out they're going to send me a new SIM card. Yippe doo wee. All is great. You can just see flowers sprouting out from behind my desk and singing birds are perched on my shelf.
Except being the mongs they are, they sent it back home without telling me.

Now to decide the fate of the last SIM card they sent me. Death by 10KV or microwave? What do you think?


Stay tuned to find out what happens to the criminal SIM 8944xxxxxxxxxx7444

  3. Right corrected.

    We're in Stage 1: the SIM card (Property of Hutchison 3 UK Ltd)
    is now in my freezer.

    When it has reached the suitable temperature of -22degC. We will throw it into boiling water.
    And then into a bucket of ice.

    And then see if it works.
