Three FAQs

Can I keep my mobile number?

Yes, this is called ‘porting’ your number and is a huge benefit - it means you won’t have to communicate a new number to all your contacts. Your new provider can sort out moving your old number to your new network when you’re signing up.

Can I upgrade to a handset plan from a Three SIM-only plan?

With a 30-day SIM-only plan, you have the freedom to upgrade or change your plan at any time, without worrying about exit fees or charges.

You can check the available upgrades by logging into My Three.

How long will it take for my SIM to arrive from Three?

Once your order is confirmed, your SIM will be delivered by standard post within 1-3 working days.

What are the advantages of SIM-only deals?

SIM-only plans are cheaper than deals that include a phone. So, if you’ve paid off your phone - and are still happy with your handset - you’ll make a saving by switching to a SIM-only deal.

If you’re out of contract, you can also move to a SIM-only deal with your current provider, rather than rolling on your contract which includes the cost of your handset - although it’s worth noting that some networks will automatically move you to a plan-only price once your handset is paid off, so make sure to check with your provider.

SIM-only plans are also a good way to check how a new network performs without locking into a 2-year deal.

You could also decide to buy your phone outright, and then go for a SIM-only deal - it may work out cheaper than paying it back as part of your monthly mobile cost, but this will depend on your provider.

What do I need to switch to an Three SIM-only plan?

You can sign up to a Three SIM-only plan online - you’ll need your passport, drivers licence or EU National ID Card, as well as a €1 payment from your debit card.

Once you receive your SIM, you simply need to pop it into your phone. If you want to move your existing mobile number to Three, you just need to fill in the form on the Three website.

You may also need to contact your current mobile phone provider if you need to unlock your handset.

What is a SIM-only plan?

Basically, a SIM-only plan does exactly what it says on the tin - you’ll get a SIM card, with an allocation of data, texts and minutes, but the deal won’t include a phone. Because you’re not paying off the cost of a phone, SIM-only plans are generally cheaper, and so you will save money by going for one of these.
