Telecom Tuesday – 26th August 2014

Hey Guys,

There has been a few changes regarding my telecom needs these last few weeks so thought it was time for a update.

Network Three – Sim only contract – Now cancelled

This contact I took out in November 2013, it was £6.75 a month and in January – April of this year when I had no landline or broadband, so I upgraded this contract to £15 a month for unlimited tethering (tethering is when you connect your phone to your laptop via USB or wifi and just use the mobile internet).

In April when I started to use Tesco Homephone and Broadband I downgraded this contract back to the £6.75 a month. Then just last week I cancelled this contract, it was meant to be a 12 months contract running till November 2014, but as Network Three signal is so bad they have let me leave mid contract.

Network Three – iPhone – £24 a month, real cost £0 a month

As some of you know this is a free phone really. While it is in my name, my boss refunds me the monthly contract (plus a little extra) as some of the work I do is to test apps and review them. I would never dream of spending £24 a month of a mobile contract myself, but apparently some people spend close to 40 quid a month, it’s all crazy if you ask me lol

Now for the new one – Vodafone

Due to the awful signal with Network Three I have taken out a Sim only contract with Vodafone. This contract was taken out 3 weeks ago, but as of now I still can’t use the sim.

The fools at Vodafone sent me the wrong sized sim from what I ordered to fit my mobile. I have told them this both via e-mail ticket and twitter and as of now still nothing.

Voda

You can see that tweet is from the 17th August, that’s 10 days ago and that is the last contact I have had. They have not sent me the correct sim, they have not sent me anymore tweets, hey they have not even replied to the e-mail from me.

So as of now I have no idea if the contract is live, if they will try an bill me, no idea what the hell is going on. Why is it so hard to find a company that care about customers? As they say on twitter #useless.

I will keep you updated on this problem with Vodafone and will update next week.

Till then,
Newt x
