    Thought I'd make this thread for fellow oneplus 3 (OP3) users on Three (3) in the UK.

    Post your issues, questions and related discussions here. Especially, when you think the issue/question may involve the network or be network related.

    Please include your build number (and other related info) when posting about issues.

    Thanks.

    Some useful three UK related links:

    Does the OnePlus 3 work well with Three (3)? I was planning on getting Three when my Vodafone contract runs out (Vodafone is absolutely terrible for the price.) Thanks in advance for the reply. :)

    Not on Oxygen version 3.2.4 as 4G is unusable. Comes up for a second then drops back to 3g. I am not the first to have such issues with this version of Oxygen.

    P.S. Apart from my little bugbear Three works fine with OnePlus 3.

    Works fine for me, South London, never had any problems. I never use Wi-Fi either because of the unlimited data plan.

    I'm on 3.2.2 have good LTE connection in my region (Blackburn, Lancashire), but not as high as above screen shot. It'll depend on 3 coverage in your region.

    Had a calls issue, where I couldn't hear the other caller for a random few seconds (not sure if they could hear me). I Don't think it's a 3 issue. So I sideloaded 3.2.2 and don't seem to have the issue anymore.

    I'm holding off 3.2.4 atm. Can someone give feedback if they have updated to it OTA or by sideloading.

    3.2.4 is similar in terms of signal and the phones lack of ability to hold onto 4G, so if you can handle 3.2.2 you'll be fine on 3.2.4

    Glad that someone has made thread! Received my replacement OP3 a few days ago, 3.2.1 out of the box, had signal issues with strong 3G being prioritised over weaker 4G (however in the Surrey area, a weaker 4G is twice as fast as a strong 3G).

    Updated to 3.2.4 via OTA, issues still persist. I'm now having issues trying to downgrade to 3.2.2 to see if the software is the actual cause. Seems to be fairly common. Hopefully resolved sooner rather than later @Adam Krisko

    How was your LTE signal on 3.2.2? Did problems start only after upgrade to 3.2.4? And did you try sideloading?

    It was fine it worked well. Yes the problem only started with 3.2.4. No I have not tried that as I don't have access to a PC.

    Lol it's not crap. Better than EE for me, and obviously GiffGaff. I only had Giff-Gaff for a month to test it out.

    It's nowhere near EE in quality. You get what you pay for right and since it's free..........Slow rollout of 4g nationwide it's slightly slap dash.

    P.S. No tell a lie it's not slightly slap dash it is slap dash.
