Stores reopening! (15th June 2020)

Three Stores are starting to reopen!
Three stores are opening across the country where it is safe to do so. All stores will follow strict distancing rules and you may be asked to queue outside. Check the store locator to see if your local store is open.

You can still contact a store representative without leaving your home with  Three Store Now, the online chat service with friendly store advisors http://www.three.co.uk/three-store-now .

Important update about customer support and our stores
Following government guidance, we’re closing our stores and our contact centre staff won’t be able to get to work as usual. Our aim is to look after those who are most vulnerable so please use other ways to get support during this time like Three App and our website that is available 24/7.

Or you can talk to us live on our website on Three Store Now, our online chat service with friendly store advisors http://www.three.co.uk/three-store-now for general product questions 9am-6pm.

Important update about our contact centres
We know this is when you’ll rely on your phones and devices more than ever. What you can be sure of is that we’re doing absolutely everything possible to keep you connected.

Due to the impact of Coronavirus and advice from the Indian government, our contact centres are currently operating a reduced service.

To help us to protect our most vulnerable customers, such as those currently without service, where possible, please hold off on calling us or using Chat. You can still manage your account, top-up, and get support via the Three app, and via our website. You can also get help in your local store.
