How good is iD Mobile?

In our latest survey we spoke to more than 3,300 customers from 16 of the biggest phone providers including EE, O2, Vodafone and Three. They told us exactly what they thought of their phone network, from the customer service on offer to the value for money they get. 

In this in-depth review of iD Mobile, we'll:

  • give you a full breakdown of how its customers rated it for key factors, including customer service, value for money and incentives.
  • report quotes from real iD Mobile customers on their experiences.
  • tell you whether it scored highly enough to earn our Which? Recommended Provider award.

What network does iD mobile use?

iD Mobile uses the Three network. iD Mobile is a virtual provider, which means it uses another providers' infrastructure – in this case Three's. It offers 3G and 4G coverage.

How good is iD's mobile coverage?

You can check coverage where you live by using our free interactive mobile network coverage map. Simply enter your postcode into the map and it will tell you how good Three's signal is in your area, as well as comparing it with the other providers.

iD Mobile's deals and incentives

iD Mobile offers a range of pay-monthly and pay-as-you-go (PAYG) deals to customers. 

All plans are for 30 days and includes a range of pricing options. Choosing a pay-monthly also allows you to choose whether you want a supplied handset or prefer a Sim-only option.

iD Mobile stores

iD Mobile doesn't have its own stores – instead, it's a Carphone Warehouse brand and so is available exclusively from its branches. And with such a large presence in the UK, it's pretty easy to track down nearby help and advice.

You can find your nearest branch using the Carphone Warehouse store locator or you can access live chat services here
