    Still be harassed by @ThreeUKSupport despite resolving their mess when they promised to cancel contracts and didn’t. Their customer service is a hideous thing with departments & systems that don’t talk to each other.

    @ThreeUK can check that I am not lying about the battery life OR I can send my phone away for 3 or more days. Really terrible service, definitely going to cancel my contract as soon as I can but the charge for that is also ridiculous! . . . 3 of 3

    @ThreeUKSupport My friends have said they don't get outages like this but I don't either, it seems to be just my area. The rest of the household have iPhones and have no problem on your network. Is there perhaps a carrier update for my phone I might need to do?

    @RossKemp @ThreeUK Ross why you working with these 2nd rate muppets for? I can’t even get a complaints number from them so I can speak to someone in UK about my account! The number just reverts to India and with that the inevitable communications issues between differing cultures! Why Ross? Why??!

    Gator (@DCIDibble) reported

    @ThreeUK What is it with this 2nd rate crappy telecom company? Take all your money from your account but not willing to talk to you unless you like phoning India! Bunch of idiots this company! My advice cancel your direct debits! Then they will speak to you!

    Clairabella (@PalmerC73) reported

    Why does my @ThreeUKSupport text keep saying they have failed to send but yet I get a message replying to the message I’ve sent? I’ve also got Wi-fi calling displayed. Does this mean my signal has gone for phone calls.

    @ThreeUKSupport Gone to your Merryhill branch. My partners on 3. 5 months left on his contract and the phones broken. Checked online and found a deal for the iPhone 7, when he’s gone into store they are trying to charge him £13 extra a month plus cancellation. When asked if they could help (1)

    @ThreeUKSupport Wow see your customer care is so poor. That £17 was not a good will gesture,it was refunded because someone at 3 said I can have 20GB of data for free for 1 month because I ran out then charge me for it. Which made me overdrawn with my direct debits,with my bank.

  • mr_shaf666
    Shaf (@mr_shaf666) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport how could you allow a dodgy company to charge £4.50 a week? Never subscribed to this company and now you can’t help me? You suggested I contact the company who never respond! You are my network provider who I pay to so do something about it! Block these numbers!!

    @52063K @ThreeUK @EE @O2 All I know is that being a loyal and decent customer with multiple contracts over the years means clearly very little. I really don’t want the ‘I’m leaving dance’ - it cheapens the customer service experience and leaves me with a bad taste in the mouth for the brand

    @ThreeUKSupport @asurion I'm still without replacement phone 9 days after accepted claim, despite your charge of £80 excess for next day. Also many wasted calls to support - people just forget you exist the moment the phone goes down, and no one cares enough to follow up. Awful.

    @ThreeUKSupport I work in the store and consistently get no coverage at all in the employee lounge while people on O2 Vodafone and others all get signal. WiFi is not available for us. My signal comes back when I walk away from the store but only H+ speeds. It needs addressing.

    @ThreeUKSupport Not at all. It happens to my flat mate as well. It’s always the same for too long now and apparently there’s no solution...I live on a ground floor just next to the street, I don’t why my signal doesn’t work properly. Thanks anyway, but it’s frustrating.
