Capture moments faster & more beautifully.

You’re serious about the photos you take on your mobile, so Samsung took camera quality to a new level on the Galaxy S5. For one thing, it has a super fast Auto Focus (<0.3s) meaning you’ll never miss the action, no matter how fast it happens. It has selectable advanced High Dynamic Range (HDR), which means your photos will be artfully lit, even when the subject is in the shade, or backlit. Selective Focus allows you to focus on what’s important and blur the background. All this with a stunning 16MP camera, means your mobile photography just got amazing.

Reasons to choose Three.

Still can't decide which network?

Here's why you should choose Three.

We believe it's time to tackle the big things that other networks won't. The things that will make mobile fairer, squarer, better.

So we've ripped up the rule book and introduced lots of stuff you may not even know about. Here's what you can expect with Three:

All 0800 calls are free on our new contract plans.
Call all 0800 numbers for free, and 084 and 087 numbers for up to only 5p a minute. All on our new 24 month contract plans.
Enjoy 4G at no extra cost.
We think you should enjoy the wonders of 4G, with no catches — which is why we're making it available to all at no extra cost. If you have a 4G device and you're in a 4G area, switching is easy — all you need is a software update.
Use your phone abroad at no extra cost.
We're tackling roaming rates because we just don't think they're fair. So we've introduced Feel At Home in 16 destinations — with more to come. It lets you use your allowance to call and text the UK and use data just as you would at home, without paying a penny more.
Low Pay As You Go rates that never expire.
We don't want you to have to spend more than you need on things like bundles and extras. So our Standard Pay As You Go rates are considerably lower than our competitors' and better yet, they don't expire after 30 days.
No nasty Pay Monthly price hikes.
You agree to pay us a set amount each month so you don't expect it to change. That's why we won't put your price up anytime through our agreement, unlike other networks. It's only fair.
Your Three phone, unlocked.
Our phones are now sold unlocked. And if you have an older device that's locked to Three, bring it in and we'll unlock it for free.
Your life back with Three Rescue.
Your device is your lifeline. So if you choose to take our Three Rescue insurance, we'll be there to help you get back up and running as quickly as possible.
Test drive devices in-store before you buy.
All our stores have live devices, letting you try out the ones you're interested in before making your mind up.

Coverage.

We know that if you are thinking about joining our Network that coverage and speed is important to you.

We have more than 97% coverage for calls, texts and mobile internet. Use our coverage checker to see our coverage in your area.


Delivery.

Phones, Tablets & MIFI ®.

We offer next day delivery (unless otherwise stated) on phones, tablets and MIFI® that are ordered before 4pm. Orders placed after 4pm will be delivered in 2 working days.

We ask you for a mobile phone number and email address so we and our delivery partner can send you up to date delivery information about your order or contact you if there are any unforeseen delays.

Our deliveries take place between 9am and 6pm (we don’t deliver on weekends or bank holidays and deliveries to our Inverness 3Store take an extra day). Please note that if your order is being delivered to your billing address then it will need to be signed for.

If you’ve pre-ordered a device you many have to wait slightly longer for your delivery, but we’ll give you an estimated delivery date when you place your order and send you any further updates as required.

SIMs & Dongles.

These are delivered to your home address within 1-3 working days and you will not need to wait in to sign for these.


For more information please take a look at our 3Store Support pages.

Returns.

You can return any new and unused device or accessory bought online for an exchange or refund within 14 days of purchase by contacting our returns team on 0333 300 330.

Please make sure you keep your Delivery Note and any collection receipts (for orders picked up from one of our 3Stores).

For more information, including what we mean by ‘new’ and ‘unused’ and any possible charges in our
full refunds and returns policy.

What to expect on your first bill.

Your first bill will be available for you to view in 7-10 days. About 19 days later we'll take this payment by Direct Debit, so please ensure you have sufficient cleared funds in your bank account at this time. The bills for your new agreement with Three must be paid on time; failing to do this may have a negative impact on your credit rating. You can keep track of your usage and bills by going to My3 on your mobile or at Three.co.uk/my3.

The first bill you'll receive from us will be higher than your usual monthly charge as we charge you for a month and up to 8 days. Find out more at Three.co.uk/bills.
