    posted this in another thread:
    been trying to ring three all day about the iphone 4s

    got through, guess how much they want to cancel my contract early 7 months early (i thought mine had finished it was my partners) and then pay for the iphone 4s on a new 24 month contract?
    bear in mind i paid £300 to upgrade to the htc hero (can u believe that? lol)
    £300 to upgrade to the iphone 3gs!

    £99 for the handset and no fee for early termination (should be £124) for the 16gb white (dont need more than that)
    but they said i cant stay on my current contract, i need to move up to the £35 a month contract which i get is:
    2000 mins
    5000 texts
    5000 3 to 3 mins
    and all you can eat data

    so ive gone with them!

    if i went with giffgaff/three payg.
    £124 to end contract (thats what they said)
    £500 for handset from apple etc
    £15 a month = £360 (£15 x 24 months)
    thats £984.
    ok i know i would have the flexibility of leaving when i want with giffgaff/3 payg, but im happy

    stay with 3
    £35 = £840 (£35 x 24 months)
    handset = £99
    thats £939!

    cheaper by £45! and i get to keep my insurance package through 3 aswell then!
    and they said i get it on day of release!

    OH YEAAAS!

    did you people not know that?

    My Iphone 4- activate the HOTSPOT.

    i can connect upto 5 devices.

    example.

    i can connect my Macbook pro, my Ipad 2 my PS3 and others at home can connect all at the same time for free as long as i have my unlimited DATA with three which i only pay £15/month and i get 300 minutes too which is plenty for me.
    :D

    Very pleased with mine on the 3 network, and unlimited data is just plain awesome. I've never seen my speed drop below 2 meg either, and I commonly receive 3-5 meg downloads, which is better than the copper broadband services in my area. Their Indian customer services suck a bit, but whose don't?

    I'm on the lowly iPhone 4, however, Three is a great network. I've been with them for a month now using their payg service.

    With £15 I get 200+ mins (can't remember exactly), 3000 texts (may as well call it unlimited because most carriers have a "fair usage" policy on texts) and the unlimited 3G internet with tethering. Absolutely amazing bargain.

    Sorry, what? £115 cash back?! How can quidco afford to offer that? Is it upfront or payed over time?

    Why not log on to quidco and see for yourself?
    I have been using quidco for almost 2 years now, maybe more, and have earned/saved over £1200 in this time.
    It's normally paid in around 2 to 3 months after the contract is taken out.
    I don't know how they afford it but I have rarely been disappointed.

    Make sure wifi is on- on your iPhone.

    Click on hotspot on iPhone make sure it's on:

    From your MacBook search for wifi devices like you would search for your router. You should find your hotspot and enter its password.

    Then your iPhone should highlight on the top in blue.

    Only on the One Plan tariff.

    Honestly Iphone3gs, are you on commission? I'm a happy customer of 3, but your constant banging on about them is starting get really irritating. Let people make their own choices on merit. If you preach at them, they're as likely to go somewhere else just to stick two fingers up at you.
