    Three Mobile >>> answering the 'phone 15th Jul 17 at 3:02 PM
    I waited 45 minutes for Three to connect me to an operator yesterday evening. It never happened. Do people ever get through to Three? Is it an illusion that their customer services exists at all?

    I got my own answer in the end though an hour's Googling.

    At least you didn't call one of the very many fake "call connection service" premium rate scam numbers that purport to "connect" you to Three. That would have wasted a lot of money on top of just wasting your time.

    Really depends when you call.

    They will be busy first thing in the morning, around 1pm to 2pm and after 4 pm into the early evening.

    All times people are not working.

    Sometimes just redialing can get you connected quicker. After 20 mins I would have redialed later.
