Three Network Features

Unlimited Data

For the ultimate smartphone experience, get an iPhone 12 on Three’s unlimited data plan. This will allow you to benefit from the six months half price offer as well as the free pair of AirPods that are currently offered by Three.

When you get unlimited data on Three, you’ll have access to unlimited data at 5G speeds. There are no hidden fair usage limits or speed restrictions for using too much data in the UK. You can also tether and use personal hotspot to connect other devices without any limit.

Three differs from many other mobile networks, which often have a fair usage limit or speed restrictions for unlimited data in the UK.

5G Coverage

Customers buying an iPhone 12 from Three can access Three’s 5G network and faster 5G download speeds.

According to Three, they’re building the UK’s fastest 5G network, having significantly more 5G spectrum than any other network. They currently have 140MHz of usable 5G spectrum, of which 100MHz is contiguous spectrum. This compares to the 40-50MHz of 5G spectrum used by other networks. It means Three is able to offer faster download speeds, handling more data at the same time on their 5G network.

At present, 5G coverage is available in the following locations on Three:

Three’s 5G coverage is currently being rolled out to other locations across the UK. There’s also a major ongoing upgrade to their 4G network which will boost the speeds available on 4G in many areas.

Go Roam

When you buy an iPhone 12 from Three, you’ll benefit from Go Roam Around The World.

Go Roam allows you to use your mobile phone abroad at no extra cost when travelling to 71 destinations. This includes most European destinations along with many others that are further afield like the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Singapore and more.

This can save you a significant amount of money when you travel abroad, especially to destinations that are outside Europe. For instance, many other mobile networks charge more than £1/minute when you’re making a phone call abroad outside Europe. You’ll normally also need to pay at least £5/day extra to use mobile data on your phone when you’re travelling outside Europe.

For more information, see our guide to Three’s Go Roam offer.

eSIM for iPhone

Three now offers eSIM support on their mobile network, with full compatibility with the iPhone 12 and full support for 5G connectivity.

This means, if you like, you can request to transfer your iPhone plan onto an eSIM. This is essentially a virtual SIM card that you use inside your iPhone. Using it will enable dual-SIM functionality on your iPhone 12, freeing up the physical SIM card slot for another SIM.

For more information, see our guide to eSIM on UK networks.

Keeping Your Phone Number

If you’re switching from another network to Three to take advantage of their iPhone 12 deals, it’s a straightforward process to bring your phone number with you.

Start by asking your current mobile network to provide you with a PAC Code. You can get one through your mobile network’s website or app, or by texting PAC to 65075. Once you’ve done that, you can order your new iPhone 12 from Three’s website.

You can either provide the PAC Code to Three when you buy your iPhone, or you can wait until the iPhone arrives. Simply fill out this form on their website and they’ll arrange the transfer of your phone number (normally for the next working day).

For step-by-step instructions on how to transfer your phone number to Three, please select your current mobile network from the drop-down menu below:
