    @ThreeUKSupport I was told by the techs at Apple that they would probably replace the phone rather than repair so 3 customer services have said..”tell them to repair or replace, whatever it takes, pay the bill & you’ll be reimbursed “ but I cannot afford to pay that.

    @ThreeUKSupport I have cancelled now but i am being charged 83.00 even though you credited my account with 70.00 then took it back! The 70.00 was for my contract that ended in march but was still charged until September. No help from three at all was told all my fault due to t&c.

    @ThreeUKSupport Same old. Will call me back... I will advise everyone I meet not to use Three. Customer service is awful.

    @ThreeUKSupport I sent an hour with someone this morning and got nowhere. I'd like someone to call me, this isn't good enough. I've been a customer for 7 years and never had such poor service. Not to mention costing me a fortune

    @ThreeUKSupport Doesn’t help me that much but might help others. Turkish signal (KTTCELL) is obviously considerably stronger than your partner’s signal (PrimeTel) moving around the island, my phone searches for signals! Thankfully I realised after 2 days - hate to think what a week would cost!

    @SingleMAhoy Our saturday afternoon was ruined by @ThreeUK calling and demanding silly money for a £9 pm sim only contract for one of the mobiles and disconnection of another last tuesday even though I do not and never have owed them a single penny in the last 13 years! #IDIOTS !

    @ThreeUK cracked my 14 month old phone screen, misold three rescue, they wanna send me a second hand phone, zero guarantee on condition or battery life. For £60 Been asked to speak to customer relations on Web chat. I hope you can sort this. Would never of bought "used" insurance

    @ThreeUKSupport G31 2QS - that area has almost no signal (3 or 4g) I’m on 3G now and that is better ...

    @ThreeUKSupport Hey, I’m on an iPhone X, I’m in central Glasgow and G31 area - signal has been so patchy! I need WiFi to get anything done 😕

    @ThreeUKSupport I’m putting a formal complaint in and contacting the PS authority. Really disgusted with the way you have treated a customer who has been with you from you started 14+ years and who had no less than 4 family accounts with you.

  • therucket

    @ThreeUKSupport terrible customer service - my contract ends in 3 weeks but I've been told about a 30 day notice period from today - been a customer for 9 yrs - disgusted!

    @ThreeUK appalling service in your Ilford store. Such an aggressive assistant I am sitting here having a tea shaking 1/2

  • RyanRafferson
    Ryan (@RyanRafferson) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport I called yesterday and they said can't can't until the 2nd of December. The whole reason why I have an issue is that I was told I could upgrade for free now and then been told I have to pay for it.

  • o0sandsii0o
    ♕Sandsii♕ (@o0sandsii0o) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport They’ll run diagnostics and service checks based on where I am, the Problem doesn’t lay where I am, the problem lays that half a city centre is nigh on unconnectable. Raise a ticket to have the masts checked in 80% of leeds city centre

    @ThreeUKSupport It comes up whenever I try to open any webpage. It does the same when I try it on my laptop too so seems to be an issue with my account rather than my device I think 🤔

    @jollyboya @ThreeUK I hope you were not using the maritime network on the ship. Not included in Three at Home or EU roaming regulations. @threeuk and other networks do not do enough to warn users.

    @EJSiameseDream @Chris_NorfolkCC @JoVertigan @norfolkchamber @techcorridoruk @Vodaphone4 @ThreeUK On the flip side, paying £40/month and getting more than 14 down 0.5 up would be nice but doesn't take 5G just takes some investment in the region

    @ThreeUK are an absolute joke. My dad rang the other day to cancel his contract as I’d got him set up with @EE and they failed to cancel, as they are far too interested in trying to sell him another 3 contract.

    Stuart Manning (@stuartmanning) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport Calling 333 is like pulling teeth from one head. I am not getting any help, even today I tried again. Some of the staff are lovely, some are difficult to understand. Some are just lost and apologise. But no one ever can explain or sends me the information I request

  • BCCIRyan
    Ryan ❤️'s BCCI (@BCCIRyan) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport They can't understand why it won't work. Have raised a technical issue. It won't work for my girlfriend either on a different phone and different browser so it's a problem at your end.

  • stuartmanning
    Stuart Manning (@stuartmanning) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport The issue at hand, is there have been unauthorised modifications to my SIM Only account Which I’m going to have to raise with the bank. I have alerted your company on multiple occasions. And am yet to have a satisfactory explanation or “even a response, as promised”

  • stuartmanning
    Stuart Manning (@stuartmanning) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport I had “multiple” phone accounts. A Three Sales member, did a *special* thing for me, as I was a long term customer and gave me an extra SIM for my partner. And the problem has been since then. I was sold a new Sim Only contract and to this day, no one at three can understand.

    @ThreeUKSupport That a copy of all transcripts would be sent as of last Novermber 2017 when I alerted your staff to the issues and irregularities

    Not sure if I should cancel my @ThreeUK because the network is temperamental . Sometimes I have no network in a location I already have used the phone.

    Stuart Manning (@stuartmanning) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport I have spent endless days trying to get support from your call centres. Even when I asked for my PAC code to be released. Your team refused to do so. There was a clerical on your companies side, A great salesperson at Three me a special favour. Which has cost me dearly

  • MontanaDeGuero
    Butterfly (@MontanaDeGuero) reported

    @ThreeUK horrible customer service! For the second time this month my phone's three sim has stopped working for week long periods of time, after a very unhelpful phone call I asked to speak to a supervisor after which I was hung up on! Very disappointing.

  • stuartmanning
    Stuart Manning (@stuartmanning) reported

    @ThreeUK @ThreeUKSupport I have repeatedly asked for copies of all dialogues including calls with your support team to resolve this matter. To date, despite even writing to you, I have heard nothing. I have had my number held to ransom for two years (sim only) //cc @Ofcom

    Pedro Cat (@ElPedroCat) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport It’s gonna be several postcodes but always seems to be the same two spots so I’ll have to find them. Speed is always slow like 0.58Mbps and streaming apps just cut out etc.

    @ThreeUKSupport thanks three outstanding contract ended in March only to be charged until September! Too much to explain on here but been a loyal customer got 3 contracts and 3 payg sims just got off phone to be told all my fault!

    @VodafoneUK my advice to any potential customers is don’t use @VodafoneUK try @O2 or @ThreeUK as I have family members who have received quality customer service unlike the approach I’ve received from @VodafoneUK. Disgraceful

    Bry Armour 🦍 (@Bry_Armour84) reported from Wallasey, England

    When you get harassed by your network provider cause your contract is due for renewal and you can’t remember the password you set up silly amount of years ago, so they can’t take the conversation any further which is fine but still try and ring me 10 times a day! Taraaa @ThreeUK

  • katierobbo89
    katie robinson (@katierobbo89) reported

    @ThreeUK so I thought you had redeemed yourselves as a company but after missing a phone call by a second yesterday and ringing straight back been told that my advisor would call back and still nothing, your customer service is shocking.

    Lauren Victoria Rhodes (@LaurenVRhodes) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport No, it’s the only branch near the airport and probs won’t be near another one before it runs out. If the app/scanners broken surely @CostaCoffee should figure out another way to honour the offer than just a flat out no...

    Lauren Victoria Rhodes (@LaurenVRhodes) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport @CostaCoffee what’s the point in offering a free drink on #wuntu it the Costa at Southampton airport refuse to accept it because “their app is broken” 🤨 apparently they can’t even put it through the till manually.

    After a very stressful time financially, @SkyUK @elephantUKHelp @sheilaswheels @btsport have been more than helpful, the one company that have almost forced me into ruin is @ThreeUK who simply cannot or won't help. Gutted. Just gutted.

    Katie (@katiecain) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport Cancelling with you is NOT simple. It took me weeks and numerous phone calls from me (after being told someone would call me back) to cancel. I doubt the amount of hoops I had to go through was even legal on your part.
