iD Mobile is a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) operating in the United Kingdom as iD Mobile Limited, using the Three network. It is owned by Dixons Carphone, and was launched on 12 May 2015.[1] Until April 2018, service was also provided in the Republic of Ireland, again using the network Three.

Products and services[edit]

iD only offers 4G pay monthly contracts for twenty four months (with a handset), monthly thirty day rolling or pay as you go SIM only deals. These can be bought online via the iD Mobile website, via iD Mobile telephone sales or in a store of the Carphone Warehouse.[2]

Ireland[edit]

On 28 June 2017, Dixons Carphone announced their intention to exit iD Mobile from the market in Ireland.[3] On 6 March 2018, Dixons Carphone announced the appointment of a liquidator to wind up the Irish arm of the company, after failed attempts to find a buyer.[4]

Advertising campaigns[edit]

iD mobile started their network with the advertising campaign of being "Personal, Flexible, Control and Fuss free" as a tagline.

In 2016, iD Mobile used taglines "The network as individual as you are" and "#DoYourOwnThing". Advertising featured the Fletcher Street Urban Riding Club from North Philadelphia.
