Black Friday Sony PlayStation treasure hunt.

Black Friday is rolling around again, striking fear into wallets everywhere. And to help you get into the mood for shopping, we’ve teamed up with Sony PlayStation and Uncharted to bring you the ultimate treasure hunt.

We’ve hidden 3 PlayStation 4’s in 8 Three Stores around the country. Your job is to find them!

Some of history’s most notorious buccaneers set sail from our shores to seek their fortune in strange foreign lands. Thankfully you won’t have to go quite as far as they did to find your own treasure, and what’s more you should be able to pop in to your local grocer at the first signs of scurvy. We’d advise against cutlasses, muskets, pillaging or other piratey acts, but be sure to have your wits about you – you may need to do a bit of research to find out where each console is hidden.

Trade-in your old phone.

Last year we introduced trade-in, which allowed customers to trade-in their old phones for cash when they sent them in to us. But we’d always planned to get to a stage where customers would be able to use that money instantly in store towards their heart’s desire; that shiny new phone.

Today we’re pleased to be able to announce that you’ll now be able to do just that and get the value of your old phone there and then in the form of a giftcard that you can spend instantly in store. Just bring your old phone in and we’ll value it on the spot. If you’re happy with the price offered and you’re upgrading to a minimum 12 month contract or taking out a new minimum 12 month contact, you’re good to go. The gift card can be used for upfront fees, tablets, Pay As You Go phones, top-up credit and accessories.

To find out more about our fab new trade-in service, take a peek here.

It ain’t over til it’s over….

Ahead of the Rugby World Cup final this weekend, we got in touch with our friend Cai Griffiths, a prop for the Ospreys (@Ospreys) rugby team in Wales. He gave us some top tips on how to make the most of the last weekend of what’s been an incredible and unforgettable six weeks of international rugby.

So it’s here, the Rugby World Cup final! Hope you’re as ready as me and the rest of the world… I’ve been waiting a long time for this great event. Being a Welsh man I’m obviously disappointed that we didn’t make the final, but I think this is the final that World Rugby supporters ultimately wanted; New Zealand v Australia!

These two teams have been on top of their game throughout the competition – from the All Blacks destroying France 62 –13 in the quarter finals to Australia showing their class in their pool A game against the host nation England, and then again versus Argentina in the semi-finals. This is truly going to be a MASSIVE match between two giants of the game.

As a player and a fan I thought I’d give you my (and Three’s) three essential tips for Rugby World Cup final enjoyment;

We’ve all seen those grainy photos of beautifully carved pumpkins in the lead up to Halloween. You have to take a picture in the dark in order to show your beloved creation off in all it’s candle-lit glory. Then, naturally, you want to share your efforts with all of your family and friends online. But we all know that some smartphone cameras aren’t up to the job of taking decent low light photos, hence the plethora of grainy pumpkin shots in newsfeeds all over the land as Halloween approaches.

That’s where the LG G4‘s camera comes to the rescue; with it’s wide aperture (f/1.8) which basically means it lets in tons of light,  your pumpkins will look as amazing as you intended.

If you fancy getting your hands on an LG G4, all you have to do is carve an amazing, competition winning pumpkin (easy, right?), take a pic of it, and yes we will accept grainy entries, then tweet it with #LGPumpkin and wait for the judges to decide which they think is the bees knees! You’ve got until Friday afternoon to submit your entry.

And no cheating folks, we won’t be accepting photos of pumpkins that you’ve found on the interwebs!

Good luck and happy carving!

New spectrum will boost speed and reliability.

We recently told you about the roll out of 4G Super-Voice on our network, when we became the first UK Operator to use 4G for voice calls. We also rolled out our low frequency 800MHz spectrum, meaning you guys are able to make calls, send texts and get online in more places than ever before.

As part of our programme to further improve reliability on our data network, we’re really pleased to announce that speeds on our network will now increase by up to 50% with the roll out of additional spectrum, namely 5MHz, within the 1800MHz spectrum.

This extra spectrum will help to increase the performance, speed and capacity of our 4G network, and will also help to further improve reliability by adding some much needed capacity in congested areas.

We use the 1800MHz to carry 4G on our network, and the extra 5MHz within this is already live across Northern England, the West Midlands, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The rest of the UK, including London, will receive access to this additional spectrum when the roll out is complete.

This will definitely come in handy as we’ve recently learned that we carried 42% of UK mobile data traffic in the year-ending March 2015. With average data use per customer reaching 4.65GB per month in June 2015. Wowsers.

To get a better idea of the amazing ways people are using our network every day, just take a look at the other impressive stats, below. For example; 215 million Whats App messages are sent by our customers, every day. That’s 215 MILLION.

We process a huge amount of data on our network for customers every day and that’s why they’ve rated us as the UK’s most reliable for each of the past five quarters, according to YouGov research.
