    I had a web chat with them the other day regarding the wife's contract. She was paying 7 pm for 600 mins, unlimited texts and 1gb and over the last couple of months she's been close to her data limit.

    At first they offered me 4gb for 16 but when I mentioned a friend was getting 4gb for 9, they quickly offered me the same deal. So 12 months of unlimited mins, texts and 4gb for 9 pm

    Hope that's of some use for somebody

    My EE sim only for 150 mins /all txts/250g data ( am low user) was costing me 10 a month. 12 month contract just ended)--wife also has same deal--2 smart phones costing 20 a month on one account in toto--grrrreat.
    Saw that Virgin (also piggybacking on EE) was offering the same 150/all txts/250g data for 5 a month.
    Rang to close down EE and switch to Virgin--but EE said they could match what I'd spotted two smartphones on low usage(as above) for a total 10 a month has put a nice smile on my fuzz!!

    Best deals offered with Three's Plans
    Hi all

    I'm one of the many people who were on one of Three's old plans and have been/soon to be changed into their new plans.

    I have been on the One Plan, however as I haven't upgraded in I think 4 years (I know, not very money saving!), I have been paying 35pm for it, whilst many others paid 15!

    I'm finally looking at their new contracts but will be looking to haggle regardless of which I choose. I've read of lots of people saving 7 on their 24pm one month plans (8GB data, unlimited mins & texts, 8GB personal hotspot (tethering).

    So I'm just wondering what others have Achieved by haggling?

    Just to add to that...I'm particularly interested in the 24pm 12 month plan with 30GB data, Unlimited texts and calls, and 30GB tethering.

    Has anyone haggled this plan lower?

    I was on the One Plan and ended up with 600 mins, 30 GB for 25/month (12 month contract). They also included 2000 3 to 3 mins.

    Personally, the current "special" offer of unlimited mins and 30 GB for 24 looks good to me, especially as we use their Feel at Home a lot too, currently enjoying the Spanish sun on our 5th trip here this year

    Oh wow so they didn't budge on their plan price with you then (excluding the additional 3 to 3 mins).

    I'm also interested in the "special offer" plan. Just toying between that and the next one up (AYCE data for 33). It's just such a big jump, with respect to price, from the "special offer" plan ��

    Has anyone achieved anything by haggling??

    I don't think the AYCE data for 33 is worth it compared to the 30GB for 24, I find Three's data very variable, school day mornings it's quite good, but pretty hopeless later in the day. Not many will be able to utilise more than 30 GB each month, and AYCE is limited to 30 GB tethered.
