I am looking to order a sim only deal with Virgin as I am leaving T-Mobile and have a PAC code, which expires on 26.08.2016
I don't want to buy the sim too early as I would be paying Virgin and T-Mobile at the same time until 26.08.2016, but I don't want to leave it too late that I miss the PAC code deadline and have to pay T-Mobile for another 30 days of contract.
Anyone ordered a sim only deal with Virgin before and can remember how long they take to send the sim out? T-Mobile take ages to send sim only deals out, as they send them 2nd class post so it can take up to 7 days to arrive. I have had to wait for 10 days before, but they cheekily charge you money immediately from the order date and not the receipt date! Hence they were in no hurry to send the sim out once you have ordered it.
I am hoping someone can confirm that Virgin sends out the sim first class and that it gets to you pretty pronto from purchase date.
