Bad news for phone unlocking shops up and down the country….
We all know the pain of being stuck with a phone that’s locked to a particular network. Do you stick with the network, which may or may not be right for you at that time? Or do you go through the sometimes painful process of getting your phone unlocked, not to mention stumping up around £15 for the privilege.
Or, you’re lucky enough to be given a decent hand-me-down phone, but there’s a problem, you have to take out a contract with whoever the phone is locked to. Or again, attempt to get it unlocked.
Which? understand this common bug bear and have launched a campaign to get all networks to sell their phones unlocked.
The thing is, we’ve already started doing it. We’re one step ahead of them, which is definitely a good place to be
Every phone you buy from us now comes unlocked. Our Director of Customer Strategy, Danny Dixon said:
“We want our customers to have the best mobile experience. Unlocked phones give consumers a choice as to how to use what is on their handset. We’d rather focus on making the services we offer attractive and useful rather than limiting what our customers can do with their phones.
“We’re confident in our network and want to provide the best experience to those that purchase their device from us. We feel that this gives flexibility and choice in the hands of the customer, helps the environment, and it has been very well received by consumers across the board.”
We’re pretty confident you’ll have no reason to want to leave us when your contract’s up, but we don’t want to force your hand. Choice is good.
And if you have a current Three phone, you can get it unlocked, for free, here.
So, we’re sorry phone unlocking shops…
