3 are such a big company these days that the only way to get access to some decidedly unsavoury and old Skool ways of. Usiness whilst accessing new and very profitable customers is to have a "side" company. Along comes I.D Mobile owned by Carphone Warehouse but on 3's network. I was initially impressed with the deals on offer, but like everything else, the devil's in the detail. After getting my mifi dongle from them in quick time I attempted to register myself with I.D to monitor where I was with my 20gig of data. Initially I tried the app which was a waste of time. A point not lost on various other app users who had left their comments. Then I tried to do register via my browser. Unfortunately, it wouldn't recognise my phone number that I.D had given as it was a mi-fi dongle ( possibly.) So, after failing at that I tried calling them for a few days. Please bear in mind that calling their I.D mobile freefone number (7777) wasn't very free for me, having only purchased a dongle at £20 a month. Needless to say getting through to them on the phone was impossible - a point not lost on many of their complaining customers - After using up my data over a couple of weeks I put the dongle back in the drawer and waited until my new Monthly allowance kicked in. I was blind on how much data i had used, because I couldn't get anywhere with registration. I presumed that, like my previous 3 mobile dongle, it would stop once the data had run out. The first month this did actually happen, but I was then charged £95 for February. I was told the charge was for "data usage". So, lets understand this correctly: For the first month I.d automatically stopped my usage on 20 gig, as per my contract, but apparently then let me run up a huge bill on data for the next! I'm positive (for a start) that I didn't use anywhere near that amount of data, but then to change the rules when you don't or can't get access to your own account is extraordinarily stupid. As a grown up (almost 40 something im pretty sure how much data ive gone through! I have now seen many other people commenting that they have been unable to set up their accounts either, leaving them not knowing anything about their expenditure. This is 3 using " old School" tactics that they can no longer use themselves because they are too much in the public and politicians eyes. So, they've set up another smaller company along with Carphone Warehouse to play the old tricks that all the big boys used to, e.g. like EE, o2, etc. I will be complaining to the Ombudsman and have now asked for my contract to be cancelled. Why do the British public get slammed by Telecoms companies all the time. It's endless the games they play and the money they make out of chaos and nothing other than radio waves.

Answer:

No theirs no success with them I'm still waiting on them to reply to me now as I can't solve anything with them because the help line does the complete opposite of what they say they do which is help so now I have to wait for some one to reply back to me from the emails and messages I have left them
