The mid-range Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 available on Three.

This feature-packed smartphone is available for free when you buy it with all 24 month price plans. For just £32 a month you get all-you-can-eat data, all-you-can-eat minutes and texts, plus standard benefits from Three such as free calls to 0800 numbers* and 4G at no extra cost when you are in a 4G area.

Otherwise, if you are a data user who doesn’t make many calls, you can pay just £26 a month for all-you-can-eat data and 300 minutes. Alternatively if you don’t use much data you can get 1GB data with 300 minutes for £20. Plus if you happen to be approaching your contract limit you can easily buy add-ons for voice or data to cover you.

You can also buy the device outright for £159.99 and make the most of Three’s market-leading pay-as-you-go rates of 3p per minute, 2p per text and 1p per MB of data.

The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 has a 4-inch screen, for easy viewing of friends’ social media updates and browsing through your pictures on Facebook. Plus, since the smartphone comes with five megapixel camera and Best Photo feature, you can capture silly moments with friends and family with ease. The Night-Mode feature means that even in low light the snap-happy can take great photos.

This device also has the Smart Alert feature, which lets users know via vibration if they’ve missed any calls or messages since they last picked it up.

Sylvia Chind, head of devices at Three, said: “The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 is a 4G ready phone that is a great all-rounder at a really attractive price. Our 4G roll-out is now well underway and we are aiming to reach fifty cities and many more towns by the end of this year and cover 98 per cent of the population by the end of 2015. This will provide our customers with a faster, smoother, and more reliable internet experience.”

As with every device on Three, the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 is even better with Three Rescue™ a brand new insurance plan that replaces a lost, stolen or broken device within 24 hours, so Three customers aren’t ever left in the lurch. Plus, the accompanying Three Rescue app (available on Android and iOS) backs up cherished photos, videos and important contacts, so you can get your life back with one call.

  • 4G Ready
