3 UK to no longer carry Windows Phone? No decision yet.

There has been some confusion surrounding a tweet posted by one of the social moderators who run the @ThreeUK Twitter account. The tweet in question (shown in the above shot) is a support answer to another Twitter user and should not be mistaken for Three UK not supporting Windows Phone as there is a massive typo at play here. See the below follow up tweet:

"That was a typo - There has NOT been any decision made about ranging windows 7 phones."

Unfortunately, Three UK still haven't got any Mango devices lined up for launch on the network - a real bummer for myself if this holds true since my contract is soon to run out and I wouldn't mind a free Mango handset upgrade (who wouldn't?). We'll keep an eye out on the coming soon section of the Three website in hope that they throw up a surprise to go next to the wide range of Blackberry and Android handsets.

As far as we're aware Three will be shipping the Mango update and they do support the platform as of now, just no news on any upcoming hardware. For the shorter version of this article: move along, nothing to see here.

Result of MS's lack of advertising, low sales. Even without Mango the OS was good enough as a 1st smartphone, but they decided not to tell anyone. Cant blame the carrier too much.

**** I'm with 3. I just purchased my Mozart off ebay and plan on sticking my sim in it. If they don't support it I wonder if this is going to make it difficult for me in anyway..

I'm sure Three will not drop support (I'm with the network too). They had/have the Omnia 7 which turned out to be a popular handset. If they stick with Mango and actually bother to advertise Windows Phone along with Android and the iPhone then we should be okay.I've only ever seen O2, Orange and Vodafone (if I remember correctly) adverts for WP7 on TV.

I went into the a 3 store a few weeks back and they told me they were no longer selling the Omnia 7 and that they had decided to no longer hold WP7 devices.The guy seemed to not like the device either and couldn't tell me anything about it!I think this is down to Microsoft personally! Come on MS, get out to the carriers and give their staff the training they need!

They sold the last of the stock as refurbs in August.£17 a month 500 mins 5000 text 1gb data.Got 2 for my teenagers :)

Microsoft and its oem partners are to blame for not marketing their devices. If people aren't educated about your product they will not buy it and in the midst of a market leader that has everyone talking, being lax won't cut it.
