Three offers free wireless charger and triple data with Samsung Galaxy S8

Monday, November 6th 2017 by Oprah Flash

While excitement over the new iPhone X release is still fresh in the air, Three is diverting attention back to the Samsung Galaxy S8 by giving away a free wireless charger and tripling its data tariff.

Until Friday 22 December, Three is adding a Samsung Convertible Wireless Charger free of charge when you take out a pay monthly contract for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. The RRP for the charger is £79.

The data allowance for the handsets has also been tripled to 12GB for the price of 4GB on a 24-month Three Advanced Plan. This includes All-you-can-eat minutes.

The charger itself has a sleek leather design and acts as either a stand or a pad for you to place your phone on and wirelessly charge the battery.

Samsung’s latest phone is available from Three in two colours, Orchid Gray or Midnight Black with 64GB of internal storage. Like other high-end smartphones currently on the market the Samsung Galaxy S8 and its big brother are dust and water resistant.

The phones feature an iris scanner for added security as well as facial recognition autofocus on the 8MP front camera to help you perfect that Instagram-worthy selfie.

Three says the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus have 4G Super-Voice capability, meaning you can make calls and send texts in areas that would have normally been blocked by indoor blackspots with poor signal.

With the pay-monthly Advanced Plans you can access Three’s Unlimited streaming package, Go Binge, as well as free roaming in 60 countries across the globe.

If your current Samsung phone needs an upgrade you could benefit from Samsung’s £50 trade-in offer by purchasing the Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus from Three.

Three is also tripling data for a range of mobile phones including the recently released iPhones, the Razer Phone and LG G6.

Three is not alone is sweetening the deal for Samsung Galaxy handsets. EE recently announced a range of deals and Sky Mobile has included a free Samsung Gear VR when you buy an S8.

If the free wireless charger has convinced you to order a Samsung Galaxy S8, Three says the phone can be in your hands within 24 hours of your order if you book it before 4pm. If you order it later than 4pm the phone will take up to two days to be delivered to your door.

Once your contract is sorted and you have your handset you’ll receive your first bill within 10 days. The first Direct Debit will be taken around 19 days later.

Expect the first bill to be higher than the agreed amount as it covers the cost of a month and up to eight days extra. By the second month your bill will return to the standard price.

Let’s talk money

All of the Three Advanced Plans include a Personal Hotspot allowing you use your phone’s data allowance to connect up your other devices and can prove useful when there is no wi-fi.

They also include the Go Binge entertainment package and Feel at Home free roaming in 60 countries.

Three’s triple data gives you 12GB of data for £41 a month on a two year contract. You’ll have to pay a £79 upfront cost for the Samsung Galaxy S8. With this plan you get all-you-can-eat minutes and texts.

For the bigger handset its £50 a month, also with an upfront cost of £79 on a 24-month contract.

For 30GB you’ll have to pay the same £79 upfront cost but the monthly charge goes up to £45 a month for the smaller Samsung Galaxy S8. You’ll also get all-you-can-eat minutes and texts.

For the same amount of data on the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus its £54 a month with the same text and calls bonuses.

Three is offering an introductory price of £49 a month for 100GB on a 24-month contract for the Samsung Galaxy S8. Just like the other Three Advanced Plans this includes the unlimited texts and calls.

The same introductory offer for the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is £58 a month.

If this all seems a bit much and you feel you don’t need a big data allowance you can opt for the 4GB Three Essential Plan. This includes all-you-can-eat minutes and texts and a 4GB tariff over 24 months for £39 a month and £99 upfront.

If you like the sound of this plan but want the bigger phone its £44 a month. This plan doesn’t include Go Binge or free roaming.
