Dodgy roaming deal from three
6 replies 285 views
Just started roaming in France on my pre-EU charging SIM contract. 24 months so protected from roaming charges for a while yet.
After spotting I was roaming, unsolicited marketing text from three arrives in France offering me an early upgrade to a fresh contract. Great deals, lower monthly charge than current and more data. However, would be on new terms so my EU data would come with a daily charge.
Am I being cynical in assuming the two are connected? PS No I’m not.
Anyone else been nudged to a “post EU protection” contract?

The real kicker is that in order to stay with the one-month rolling contract option that I currently have, they are literally doubling the monthly price, as well as charging me for the roaming! Go Roam was the only reason I've put up with poor customer service and shonky coverage in the past, so time to vote with my feet.
I shall be moving to ID Mobile who still offer EU roaming as part of the package and use the Three network.
Question: For simplicity, I have all 5 of our family SIM contacts in my name (all on Three). If I now move 5 SIM cards to another provider (such as ID Mobile), will this adversely affect my credit report (5 hard searches?)
They say that there's no way to avoid multiple credit checks.
