Frequently Asked Questions

Why Choose a Pay Monthly Contract?

Pay monthly phone contracts incur a fixed monthly fee for a set period of time.

The advantage of taking out a pay monthly contract is that you don't have to pay as much upfront for a new smartphone – in fact you'll often get the phone itself free, which can make the whole cost a lot more manageable, particularly if you’re after a high-end phone which would usually cost hundreds of pounds.

All contracts come with a bundle of inclusive minutes, data and texts to use per month. Most modern contracts are taken out over 2 years, after which you are free to switch to a SIM Only deal to save money or upgrade to a new smartphone. Those looking for even more flexibility should consider a Pay As You Go phone.

Why choose a Three Pay Monthly contract?

There are numerous reasons to choose Three, but one of the most important is the great value deals that are available with free phones starting from just £10 a month.

There are also a number of additional benefits on Three that you won't get elsewhere, including free worldwide roaming in 71 destinations, truly unlimited data and unlimited tethering.

Plans with more than 12GB of data also come with Go Binge meaning that using Apple Music, Netflix, Snapchat, Deezer, Soundcloud, Lifetime and TV Player won't use up your data allowance.

Can I get a free phone on contract?

Free phones are available on Pay Monthly contract from £10 a month. There are also a wide range of phones available with no upfront cost, including the latest iPhones, Samsung Galaxy phones and more. 

Bear in mind that it sometimes offers better value to pay a small upfront cost for a phone, which helps reduce the cost to the network and lowers monthly costs.

Will I need a credit check to get a contract phone?

All Pay Monthly phone contracts require a credit check due to the value of the phones being offered to consumers.

Those with bad credit might want to consider choosing a Pay As You Go phone, or getting a SIM Only deal as they have less strict credit checks.

Can I get a 5G phone on contract?

Yes, Three have a range of 5G Ready phones available to buy. Those lucky enough to live in an area with 5G coverage can enjoy superfast speeds, while those still waiting will be future-proofed for when it does arrive in the area.
