Get creative to win tickets to Snowbombing festival.

Fancy hanging out in an igloo on top of a mountain and then checking out a live set from Rudimental?

That’s the kind of thing you can expect at Austria’s infamous Snowbombing festival in Mayrhofen, which we’re very excited to announce we’re sponsoring for the first time this year.

Austria is one of 16 countries you can use your phone abroad in at no extra cost with Three. This means that all you snow worshipers can tweet, Facebook and Instagram away, just like you would at home, but with no extra cost!

If you want the chance to go to this stunning, icy festival, we’ve got an exciting opportunity for any of you aspiring vloggers out there. We’re looking for a raving reporter, our man, or woman, on the ground at Snowbombing, to capture the buzz and excitement of the festival and explain how you’re using your phone in Austria without the hefty cost.

Exclusive network tariff partnership with Honor just announced.

Anyone following our Social Media over the last few days will know that we’ve been over in Barcelona for Mobile World Congress 2015. We’ve seen lots of exciting new phones and gadgets and heard from some amazing speakers.

But the highlight for us has to be that we’re now able to announce an exclusive network tariff partnership with Honor for their latest flagship phone; the Honor 6+. The 6+ is the first Honor device that we’ll range and we couldn’t be more excited. You guys will be able to buy one on a variety of contracts for the first time in the UK.

Honor have built-up quite a fan base as an innovative and exciting brand, so we’re really looking forward to working with them to bring the 6+ to an even greater audience.

Their devices have so far only been available online, but their partnership with us means you’ll be able to get your mitts on a 6+ in selected Three stores across the country.

If premium design and specs, without the hefty price tag are your thing (let’s face it, who doesn’t want that!), then the 6+ may we’ll be for you.

To start with there’s an impressive 1.8GHz octo-core processor as well as 3GB RAM which gives you power and speed as well as great battery life. 32GB of internal storage only adds to the array of high-end specs.

Couple that with a dual lens 8 MP rear camera, an 8MP front facing camera and a built-in aperture lens, and you can see how the 6+ could be a major player.

This is a premium, stylish phone that manages to also bring affordability. You’ll be able to enjoy the Honor 6+ with the added benefits of our network like 4G at no extra cost and Feel at Home in 16 destinations around the world including USA, France, Australia and Spain from April 1st.

We’re really looking forward to bringing the Honor 6+ to Three and we’ll be able to bring you news of dates in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

Away the lads.

Being a football fan can be tough. It often requires dedication and sacrifice. Particularly during the FA Cup when you could be required to travel for miles in order to support your beloved team.

This is exactly what Plymouth Argyle fans face this weekend. The most dedicated among them will be making the arduous 800 mile round trip to see their team take on Hartlepool United on Saturday.

Making this away journey one of the longest away journeys ever. Fact.

To celebrate this momentous event, we’re set to become the Official Away Fans sponsor of Plymouth Argyle for the match. We think their commitment to their team should be rewarded, and to do this we’re going to help Argyle fans stay connected to their club throughout their long journey using our award winning network.

Use your phone abroad at no extra cost in Spain and New Zealand.

The Christmas lights are still up (just!) and the turkey leftovers are still going strong. There’s a limp, slightly brown looking Christmas tree clinging on for dear life in the corner. But we all know what’s coming and we have to face up to it. Christmas is over. No more lovely food, no more tinsel everywhere you turn, nothing to brighten up those grim January days except the nagging feeling that you should probably be in the gym.

It’s going to be ok though. Now’s the time people are starting to think about escaping the doom and gloom. Thoughts turn to sunnier, warmer climes and we begin to book our summer holidays – hoorah.

We think we might have made those summer holidays that little bit sweeter this year too…. We’re really excited to be able to announce that as of April 2015 you’ll all be able to use your phones (and tablets!) at no extra cost in both…. Drum roll please…. New Zealand…. And……Spain!

If you intend to tell everyone you love them this New Year…. Just remember one thing!

It’s 11pm on New Year’s Eve. A great time to message your entire contacts list with a soppy ‘I love you so much, happy new year!’ message. Nothing wrong with that we say. But before you press the send button we just want to make you aware of one thing…

Due to a larger than normal recipient list on New Year’s Eve some phones, by default, will convert a regular SMS (text message) to an MMS (picture message). Picture messages aren’t included in bundles, which means you guys could end up with a larger than normal bill.
