#LenovoOnThree

Introducing the latest flagship to come from Lenovo is the Lenovo P2. This phone doesn’t only look the part with its full metal body and slim design encasing a 5.5” FHD super AMOLED display, but it also delivers the goods too. From Pay Monthly rates starting at only £18 on our network, you really can’t lose. Forget carrying your charging cable with you wherever you go and making sure you have spares in the car, this phone can last up to 3 days on a single charge! It’s that good, you can even use it as a power bank for other devices too. In the event that you do start running low then you can charge the whopping 5100 mAh battery with its 24W rapid charger, which will give you up to 10 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes of charging. Mind = blown!

Three brings some pre-Christmas cheer – and Internet connectivity – to Hebron.

Pretty, quiet and remote, the village of Hebron, Northumberland (about thirty minutes north of Newcastle) has a lovely church dedicated to St. Cuthbert, a smattering of stone cottages, modern bungalows and farms, and 172 residents.

What they haven’t had, for years on end, is a reliable high-speed Internet connection.

Until now.

The residents of Hebron have been relying on a copper cable which runs through the village for Internet access, and despite having a BT cabinet installed this past August, Internet connectivity has been patchy at best, with buffering issues and extremely slow speeds making any Internet use more of a hindrance than a help.

Things most of us living near the urban sprawl take for granted – downloading emails, streaming beloved shows, finishing an online homework project – are a daily nuisance for many in rural villages like this one. Imagine the inconvenience of trying to run a business or work from home.

Frustrated Hebron residents – who were left waiting in vain for someone from Openreach to arrive and sort out the issue – have had no choice but to pay for costly line upgrades, fixed broadband and portable Wi-Fi back-ups out of pocket, just to get online.

So we’ve put on our Santa hat and flown our sleigh right over to Hebron.

OK, fine, we took the train – but we did deliver some fabulous Christmas cheer.

And we’ve made sure that the residents of Hebron are connected to friends and family everywhere this Christmas. And for the new year ahead.

We’ve given the gift of Home-Fi to the residents of Hebron. Our broadband wireless routers aren’t linked to a fixed landline, so are ideal for anyone with long-term patchy Internet issues (like if you’re living somewhere remote) or for those in need of a short-term Internet fix (students and employees in temporary business locations will also benefit from this).

Now, this Christmas, Hebron villagers have the freedom to join in on the Christmas festivities however they want to, whether it’s Skyping with a loved one across the ocean or falling in love with the Queen all over again by catching up on Netflix’s The Crown.

And, of course, if need be, they can also tackle any looming work deadlines over the Christmas period. From the comfort of home.

For us, this is just another step in our daily journey to #makeitright, one day – and innovation – at a time.

Ride a unicorn to work.

Yes, you read that right. The dark, cold, autumn days may have started to set in but this week we are brightening up the commute for Londoners. Fancy riding a unicorn to work? We thought so. We’re partnering with ZTE to create #MagicTogether, and injecting a little sparkle into the commuters’ day.

Forget the tube, train, bus, or even the Thames Clipper – for three days only our ‘Unicabs’ will be available to flag down in busy commuting areas across the city. The fantastical creatures have been brought to the capital to officially celebrate the launch of the new ZTE Blade V7 device that is exclusively available with us, and to make it right for busy workers fed-up of the same repetitive journey to work.

The beautiful white and rainbow-coloured Unicabs, fitted with a carriage big enough to seat you and three colleagues, will operate in Canary Wharf, Monument and Southwark on October 26, 27 and 28.

On board passengers can also trial the slick new ZTE Blade V7 and snap the sights that Londoners take for granted from the comfort of their private Unicorn-drawn carriage.

zte-blade-v7-thumbnail

Are you ready to meet the lowest-priced 4G Super-Voice phone on Three?

TLDR: It’s officially here: the ZTE Blade V7 phone has arrived exclusively at Three.
Here’s why we’re obsessing over it (and not just because it only costs £129.99 on PAYG)…
You want a high-end, premium smartphone at a fraction of the cost?
You need a phone that looks sleek, has powerful performance and a price tag you can actually afford, we hear you cry? Well, good news: your prayers have been answered.
The ZTE Blade V7 Android phone has landed at Three – exclusively – and it’s officially the lowest-priced 4G SuperVoice phone that we range.
What does getting a new phone boil down to? For most of us, we want a device that lets us do our talking/texting/social media stuff, takes amazing photos, makes our lives easier/more efficient/more organised and doesn’t cost the Earth.
It’s not too much to ask: the ZTE Blade V7 ticks all of those boxes – and more.

Here’s a quick round-up of some of the best features you can expect to find with this phone:
•The performance of a much more expensive phone: Think a 13MP rear camera, double colour flash front camera and a gorgeous 5.2″ Full HD display. We also love the rounded-edge design of the handset, which makes it easy to stash in your pocket, or hold onto as you spend agonising minutes – or even hours, we’ve been there – perfecting that Snapchat-filter selfie. What’s more, we’ve been working tirelessly with ZTE to bring you a stock Android experience, currently running the latest version of Android, 6.0 Marshmallow, which has cool, make-your-life-better features like easy cut and paste, voice search from the lock screen, smart lock for passwords and Google Now on Tap.

•The price is so good it sounds like we made it up (we didn’t). You can choose to purchase the phone as part of a 24-month contract with no upfront costs – this will cost £11 a month and lets you benefit from Three’s Feel At Home plan, now available in 42 countries. So you can do everything you love to do on your phone, pretty much anywhere, at no extra cost. OR you can buy the new ZTE Blaze V7 on Pay As You Go for just £129.99 (and pay Three’s market-leading rates of only 3p per minute, 2p per text and 1p per MB of data).
Have we mentioned the ZTE Blade V7 is 4G SuperVoice enabled yet? Which means you can say sayonara to signal failures and bye-bye to black spots, whether you’re in the city or the country, a cellar or a cave.

We’re particularly excited about this launch: not only are Three the exclusive retailers of this snazzy-yet-affordable new device in the UK, but we really like ZTE as a company. They’re good people.
Even cooler? ZTE is currently crowdsourcing ideas for its next mobile project to give the public what they want in a product – as well as the opportunity to design it from the ground up. Now that’s something we can get behind.
