Have a problem. My 18 month contract with 3 comes to an end on 22nd October 2011. I have been in contact with them since May on a couple of occasions enquiring about this. Today I spoke to them again saying that I would not be renewing my contract when it ended. After offering me all sorts of other deals, some of them good I have to say but I don't like being tied into such long contracts, they then informed me I am too late to cancel as I have to give them 30 days notice !!!!!!!!!! Why do I have to give notice to end a contract that I have contracted to be only 18 months long? If the contract ends on 22nd October 2011, why should they need notice that it is going to end?
Sorreee steam coming out of my ears at present. After reading some posts it looks to me as though this is what mobile companies do, I am a bit long in the tooth. I did study law for awhile, and silly me I thought the end of a contract, was the end of a contract and did not need ending !!
Anyway if I cancel now, what is likely to happen? Will 3 try to tie me into another long contract? Will they try to charge me extra for not ending the end of my contract (that is just soooo weird and wrong sounding) by giving them 30 days notice?
