Mobile Phone Offer from Three – 8GB for £8 a month with unlimited texts & calls

Is this a no-brainer?

Three have always led the way in including roaming before anyone else, it now stretches to 71 countries including Australia and the USA. Although there is a “fair use policy” and technically you’re not supposed to use it permanently abroad but we don’t know of people being blocked in using it for a ski season.

Finally, at the end of last Winter, Three allowed 4G roaming (after their 3G was becoming almost unusable) and it’s a pretty decent service across France now.

There are always some catches, but we can’t see any – it roams free in Switzerland too for those Geneva transfers unlike iD Mobile, the Dixons/Carphone virtual operator who actually use the Three network!

There won’t be tethering abroad and calls / texts to foreign numbers will be charged along with picture messaging ( but not iPhone Messages or Facebook Messenger / Whatsapp photos etc). It is 5G ready too.

The offer closes at midnight Friday and it is a 12 month sign up – if you Quidco it you may get another £47.50 cashback making it only £4 a month eventually. There’s also a link here for a £25 Amazon Voucher – no idea if you can do both – but that makes it possibly less than £2 a month in effect. Surely this can’t be right???

Try the registration for the Amazon voucher first then get the link off Uswitch or Quidco to buy.
