    If you don't pay for the phone you would effectively be stealing, is that what you want to do?

    Evening all,

    I don't post here much so forgive me if I am not up to speed on how these forums work.

    I have been a customer with Three mobile for about 5 years. The first 3 were fine (coincidence? ) but these last two have been pretty bad in terms of network service quality, specifically 4G speeds. I usually get no more than 5Mbps and sometimes as low as 0.19.

    I foolishly took out another phone on contract with them in the summer and had been experiancing the same problems. Anyway, long story short, I took out a sim only plan with EE and am now getting over 40Mbps, which proves that it is an issue with their network.

    Yesterday I got on the phone to them and explained that I wish to leave early as I was tired with their poor service and find EE's much better.

    At fist they wanted almost a grand in Early termination fees (Took out a flagship phone ), to which I said I would not pay as I am only leaving due to their own network, not because I just feel like leaving. After a bit of back and forth, they said that if I would pay off the remainder of what I owe just for the phone (£530), they would call it quits.

    My question is, do you think this is fair and could I possibly take this further and not pay them anything as I suffered with their cr*p network long enough, much to my unknowing that I could of had better had I switched.

    Thanks for making it to this point and any feedback you have would be appreciated.

    You signed a contract, they’ve been more than fair. You can try and run away, the debt will just follow you.

    Can’t see this ending well for your credit rating in the long run
