Here at Three, we're always looking for ways to make your life easier - these apps and services do just that. Check 'em out.

At Three, we’re constantly on the lookout for ways to make your life easier. Sure, it’s partly because we’re downright lovely. And also because we want you to know just how much we love you. But mostly, we’re just here to make your mobile life easier, because why shouldn’t it be?

So here are the Three apps and services you really need to know about. Now.

Out with the old, in with the new

We’ve all got that dusty old drawer that we use for old batteries, Sellotape and USB cables. Rifle through it again and we bet there’s an old phone hiding in there, too. Whether it’s in the kitchen drawer, the under-stairs cupboard or nestled in the laundry room, it’s just cash waiting to be claimed.

With Three you can trade in your old handsets and get the cash back within days, either online or in store.  This handy tool helps you figure out how much cash you’re likely to get back. If you get a better quote from any of our competitors, we promise we’ll match it, because we’re honest like that. 

And if you’re just in that giving-is-better-than-receiving mood, then please donate your old phones to us. Through our Reconnected scheme, we’ve teamed up with different charities to make sure that your old phones are donated to those who aren’t connected, to help improve someone else’s life.

Three saves the day

It’s no secret that breaking your phone is like losing a lifelong companion, which means when it does happen it’s the worst thing ever. No worries though – it’s Three to the rescue. Literally.

If you bought a phone with us between 7 August 2017 and 6 March 2020 and took out our insurance, you’ll have  Three Rescue Cover. And if you make a claim, we’ll send a replacement phone or tablet to you the next day. That means in a mere 24 hours, you can catch up with your WhatsApp groups, update your Facebook status and upload an Instagram selfie of you with your shiny new phone. #blessed

Friends with benefits

Who wants to get a present outside of birthday/Christmas season? We do, that’s who! We all know that the greatest gift is giving (blah, blah, blah), but with Three, it totally is: refer your friend and you’ll both have £25 to spend on anything you want on Amazon. Consider it a present from us, to you. Go on, you deserve it. Or even if you don’t, go on and enjoy it.

Free delivery. The very next day

Once you’ve made that decision to buy a new phone, we know how important it is to get it immediately. Like yesterday. So let’s say you’ve ordered the iPhone 7, an iPad or a Samsung Galaxy S7, and you need it to organise your life ASAP (and for bragging rights, of course). 

With us, you can get free delivery on all of our phones, tablets and mobile broadband – to your home or nearest Three store (whichever is more convenient). Just order before 8pm, Monday to Friday, to have that gorgeous new gadget in your hands the next working day. 

And you can test-drive any live device you want in our stores, so you can make sure the new phone you’re eyeing is as easy to use as it is easy on the eyes. Because we’re big believers in ‘try before you buy.’
