New to the iD Community or want to learn more about the Community ranks?

Here’s how it all works...

Read on to find out how to get involved, rank up, get the most from your phone and gain access to exclusive content…

Welcome to the iD Community!

This is the place where iD customers, phone and tech enthusiasts come together to get answers, ask questions, chat to one another and enter epic competitions.

Our ranking system is there to help you get the most out of the iD Community. With rankings, you can see how active and knowledgeable other iD members are, and they can see how knowledgeable you are.


There are nine ranks, starting from Civilian all the way up to Legend. Once you reach Superhero level, you’ll be able to access the exclusive ‘Superhero Hideout’, where you will gain access to a whole host of insider information, perks and rewards. Nice!

The more involved you get in this, your community, the faster you rank up and get access to the exclusive content that only the most active iD members see. It’ll also boost your chances of earning top rewards as you go; such as, extra data, gift cards, tablets, mobile devices and accessories! The list goes on!


Ranks: Civilian to Hero

 You’ll start as a Civilian, and work your way up as a Newbie, Rookie, Novice, Sidekick and Hero. When you reach the Hero rank, you’ve nearly made it to the hideout area.


The Superhero Hideout features content that only Superheroes get clearance to see, and we’re making it better all the time. 


Congratulations to:

Four of our top members have already made it to the Superhero hideout (shout out to @terrywebbs @Adzdalton , @daniiiiiv , @Gregor  and ), and you can be there with them.


But first, here’s how you get there:


Got a question? Ask away

You’re in the right place to find out about all things iD-related, tech and lifestyle. Our brilliant members offer a wealth of knowledge on all kinds of topics. But if you’re struggling to find an answer, or you want to find out more about what your phone can do, feel free to ask your own question!

Just click the ‘Ask a question’ button on the top right and give your post a clear title and description. Don’t forget to add the most appropriate category and tags so your fellow iD’ers can see it.

Once you get the answer you’re looking for, be sure to ‘like’ the answers you’ve found useful. It makes it easier for others to find the same answers and will help you on your journey through the rankings.


Know your stuff? Share it with others

Help make the iD Community an awesome place to be. We have members posting questions regularly, waiting for the right person with the right answer to reach out. That could be you!

Dropping a useful comment or friendly guidance on a regular basis will help you fast track your way to superhero status. Try to give correct and detailed answers and you might have your answer marked as ‘most helpful’ this will not only benefit your rank reputation and progression but also make it easy for other members to find accurate answers.

It doesn’t stop there!

You can even earn badges that show your expertise when you give great answers to specific topics. For example, if you think you know your way around iPhones, helping other Community iPhone users will earn you the ‘Apple Guru’ badge. So, everyone will know you’re the go-to person for all things iPhone. Get involved!


Just browsing?

Don’t feel like you have to visit the iD Community for anything in particular. Feel free to have a browse around the different posts and discussions that are active right now and check out our blog posts and competitions. We post a competition once a month, giving you the chance to win great prizes like a shiny new phone, extra data, gift cards and more.

And while you’re here, why not strike up a conversation? It doesn’t have to be about phones or iD Mobile, and who doesn’t love a good chinwag?  Get chatting to fellow members about anything and find common ground - that’s what a community’s all about, after all.  

That’s everything you need to know about earning your cape and getting involved in the iD Community. Hopefully, we’ll see you in the Hangout soon!

My favourite superhero is my friend Katy - always there to make everything better and keep me sane!

I would like to mention me (after all I was the first superhero on iD Mobile)


simply because he likes to help people on the iD Community Forum

Userlevel 1

My favourite superhero is my best friend, he is also someone I love. Although our stories are like rollercoasters; he became my main support, and made my life more interesting and colourful. We have fight through many obstacles together and even became each others obstacle, yet we still have a strong bond. Thank you to this person for being there for me. I hope better adventures await him.

Thank you iD for holding this competition for us.

One day hiking in Wales I lost my way and scrambled up a hill which became a cliff face. I’m not great with heights and became paralysed with fear, not able to go on or back. I had my mobile but no signal. I prayed and I saw one fleeting bar on my phone so quickly called the Mountain Rescue Team. As soon as I rang off my signal went. So I sat on a tiny ridge in the cold and dark and waited. They found me after about 90 minutes and took me to safety, back to my car and stayed with me till I was in a fit state to drive home. I will never forget what they did for me. I got off that mountain alive and in one piece because of that Mountain Rescue Team - all of whom were volunteers. Amazing self-sacrificial superheroes.

All the NHS workers are my superheroes, for all they have had to deal with over the past year!

My superhero is a friend Dudley who is 83 and does the same Pilates class as me. He just inspires me to keep going

The green arrow was a good archer and we'll trained at hand to hand combat. He had technology but no superpowers. He gave all to see justice done.

My superhero is my husband. Although with long term health issues, he is always happy and will do anything for me.

My  Super Hero ,has to be ‘ Malcolm Macdonald , who wore the No 9 shirt for Newcastle united and England .When he received the ball , he used to run through the defence ‘  and score  . 

                                    Brian Welch .

my favourite superhero was the incredible hulk growing up and now i am pleased to see that my 3 yr old son also has the big guy as his favourite hero also :)

Hulk Smash

My superhero is a wolverine, a little crazy but very nice ...

Userlevel 1

I think for me it would be Zatanna, I don’t know why but it probably has a lot to do with the “fishnets”


Userlevel 1

In terms of comicbook superhero arc, Ironman - from arrogant and selfish to (spoiler alert) giving his life to save humanity...aaannnd my dad’s pretty cool too.

Userlevel 1

Got to still be Superman. I grew up with him!

Userlevel 1

Alan Shearer , turned down the chance to join Man U for his home town Team , Newcastle United , who he supported as a boy .. Still the premierships all time record goal scorer 

Favourite superhero? Gotta be my big bro, sticking it out as a trainee doctor through what is such a bizarre time period right now, and managing to always do it with a smile!

Userlevel 1

My sons are my superheroes as they are young carers for their youngest brother and they do so much for him and for us, their parents and they hardly ever even moan about it!!!

Userlevel 2

My favourite superhero is Wonder Woman, happy memories watching her as a kid :-)

Userlevel 1

Superman, a classic super hero...always the good guy

Other than all the amazing people in my life, I would have to go with Maleficent (yep, counting her as a superhero). I can complete understand the way she feels about people and think she's awesome!

Userlevel 1

My superhero is every key worker who is keeping our  country going on despite the global pandemic 😷 

It’s their every day fight to keep us safe, well and bring us together even when we are apart.

All key workers are superheroes and deserve recognition for all their hard work! 🏅 😊 🌎

My favourite superhero would have to be Dumbledore from the Harry Potter books.

He had done questionable things in his youth and never forgave himself but learnt from it. Knew his limitations and where to draw the line. Was incredibly powerful but only used it for good and to instruct and inform new minds. Admitted when he was wrong.

He died to save others.

Not much you can add to that.

He may be fictional but his lessons, hopefully, extend beyond the written word.

Superman.  He’s got it all, he’s not just a one-trick pony.
