Three inTouch downloaded 1 million times.

Cast your minds back to the hazy, sunshine filled days of summer 2014 and you might remember that we launched an exciting new app called Three inTouch.

inTouch is a nifty little app that allows you to make calls and texts over Wifi. Perfect if you’re on the underground, or, in a nightclub, or, well, anywhere there is Wifi but no network connection. Pretty handy huh?

Three inTouch has been hugely popular since it was launched, we even released a new version last  month which ironed out some of the little glitches you guys had told us about, like:

1. You’ll no longer have to turn off Wi-Fi to activate inTouch on Android

2. If you downloaded the app to your “Rooted Device” you’ll find that it now works*

3. You can now select not to receive SMS’s into the Three inTouch inbox and you’ll be able to get them sent directly in to your normal inbox when you’re in 3G or 4G coverage.

Today, however, we’re really excited to announce that  Three inTouch has now been downloaded and activated by a WHOPPING 1 million customers! This is quite an achievement and naturally we’ve popped a few bottles of champagne at Three Towers today to celebrate. We’re even beating Spotify and Twitter in the app store charts!

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.

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.
