I have a 3 contract SIM.

If I buy a simfree handset, will I lose any functions on 3? i.e. like checking my bill and so on?

Thanks

No but i'm pretty certain you need a 3g capable phone.

No, as long as you have a 3G unlocked phone and you are connected to 3 you can access MyThree.

Yeah it will be a 3G handset, a Xperia U, but wasn't sure if it mattered if it was on 3 or not?

I also thought they could terminate your contract if they find out you're using a non 3 branded phone?

No. If that were the case loads of people would be doing it to get out of their contract

They got pissed off a while ago if you were using a 2G only phone as its against their terms and conditions. Moan, moan mutter, mutter "Roaming!"

No.

They quite clearly state that you can use any 3G phone.
