Three are a shower of moronic muppets.

So following on from my post yesterday I decided to hand back my kit and caboodle to Three. I checked the website and saw the Cork store (whose staff were pleasant and efficient when I dealt with them) was open until 19:00. So in between dropping kids to beavers and collecting them we dashed into town and arrived at the door of Three at 18:35. What did I find ? I found a closed shop. A very firmly closed shop. A shop that was definitely not open. Lo and behold as far as Three are concerned the shop is open until 19:00. It wasn't. Now it also says that it's open late tomorrow night. Will it ? Sheesh. Is this anyway to run a business ? Basic facts and information should be up to date on websites especially for a communications company. God help the national broadband tender. ...

  1. When they open back up again maybe you could ask them how come three.ie/my3 NEVER EVER works?

  2. Never, I repeat never, buy a 3 Phone from a 3 shop!!! I've only been in there once, and once was enough... describing the staff as inept, doesnt even come close to reality.

  3. @ Eoin O'M - I don't understand why companies can't get their site offerings to "just work".

    @ Gamma - I may be wrong but I detect that you're alluding to a terrible event which left you scarred for life ...

    I rarely darken the doors of phone shops but the tales from them seem to be of incompetence , inefficiency and inability.

  7. The best you can do is to go and make an official complaint to 3 (see their website) and then when they don't resolve it log a complaint with www.comreg.ie

    Also have a look at www.boards.ie - they have a massive thread about 3 Broadband.
