Pre-order dial today.

Today is THE day. dial, the next generation wearable from will.i.am’s company iam+ is finally available for pre-order exclusively with Three. Learn more about dial and how you can get your hands on tickets to will.i.am’s concert at the Royal Albert Hall to celebrate the launch of this very exciting product :)

dial, featuring AneedA; its intuitive and intelligent voice-based personal assistant, works without the need for an accompanying phone. It carries its own Three SIM card. Meaning you can call, email, tweet and communicate straight from your wrist. No need to take your phone to the gym, or on a night out, your dial will be all you need.

AneedA is a sassy personal assistant who can give as good as she gets. But more than that, she allows you to perform everyday tasks with simple spoken commands, be that helping you to write and send a text or email, recommending the best restaurants nearby, letting you know the latest headlines or even booking you a flight.  She is definitely handy to have around 😉

Featuring Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS, a 1.63” AMOLED screen and a 2 Megapixel front-facing “selfie camera”, dial is a force to be reckoned with, especially when you consider the 32GB of on board storage.

But there’s even more to dial. Much more. Namely a unique ad-free music service, i.am+ music. All dial customers get full access to over 20 million tracks via a huge music catalogue. That’s not all though, access to that music is free in every sense of the word because you’ll be able to listen and download tracks to your hearts content without it being deducted from your data allowance.

To celebrate the launch of dial and its amazing music service will.i.am has announced that he’ll host two exclusive free concerts at the Royal Albert Hall on May 11th.  The event, aptly named ‘AneedA Night Out’, promises to be a once in a lifetime concert.  Thousands of tickets for the concert will be available via ballot that anyone can enter via Three stores around the country. Simply enter a Three store and scan a QR code for your chance to attend the gig. Once you’ve got your code, you’ll be given a url where you can enter your details and you’ll be entered in to the ballot for tickets. Names will be drawn on 6th May. If you’re lucky enough to be chosen, next stop will.i.am at the Albert Hall!

And for the opportunity to win a VIP package to the concert, stay tuned to the Three Twitter account next week.

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.

We’re sorry.

Recently, you may have noticed a dramatic rise in sunsets appearing in your social media feed.

We’re sorry.

Responsibility for this holiday spam rests entirely on our shoulders.

We thought allowing our customers to use their phones in 16 destinations worldwide, like they would at home, was a good thing.

No extra cost for calling and texting back home. No extra cost for data.

But we failed to consider the consequences.

We’re sorry.

Sorry for all the sunsets, the fancy cocktails, for plane wing after plane wing after plane wing.

Sorry for the mini monuments, the beach feet, the street food, the #nofilters, the hot dog legs.

We deeply regret the frustration this has caused.

We urge all Three customers, when abroad, please brag responsibly.

Thank you.
