Deeky, you were on a similar deal to mine. You received anything yet?
#2
Up from what?

I am paying £5 with Virgin media mobile and nothing mentioned so far.
#3
Up from 9.50 which was up from 5. Depends what your package is. I was unlimited everything. It's only gone up to 9.50 for one month.

Looks like I'll be moving from Virgin.

Was the initial discount based on the fact you're a current virgin media customer?. And are you still a virgin media customer?. Just logged into mine and im still on £5 per month, unlim calls, texts and 250mb net.

Yeah, full Virgin media customer. You're only only 250meg Internet hence the 5 price. Mine is unlimited everything.

Looks like I'll be asking on the ask forum X)

Atleast need some counter offers before I threaten to leave.

Any good deals on EE you've seen? Data more important than minutes.

Who runs life as in which company? Or is it a subsidiary of EE?

How's ID mobile for service and coverage. Some decent deals on uswitch. Going to phone Virgin tomorrow, see what my average data usage was over the last 6 months and then decide.

Any company's to avoid?

We had 3 sims with giffgaff and speeds were terrible, so looked at id as it seemed to offer the best 4g deals but I was seeing so many poor customer service reviews. ordered one thinking how bad could it be as I would I couldn't remember the last time I had to speak to giffgaff. I then kept seeing poor reviews on here so I cancelled the sim I had ordered. They were very good when I contacted them to do the cancellation. Went with life transferred over all 3 sims and two of them have had issues porting the number across seems lots of companies have the same issues from what I have seen. The data is only 3G same as virgin but up to 10 times faster than we were getting with giffgaff. Problem is our local area signal EE signal seems poor even though the coverage says it's ok, dropped calls and some no service expect if you have had virgin then you shouldn't see any issues. So probably back to probably looking around again, might end up giving Id another go.
#11
Right so life is actually a subsidiary of EE which is good to know. ID is part of the car phone network but that has 4g.

Well I'll probably be in a better position tomorrow when I find out my average usage over 6 months.

Will miss having unlimited data but can't justify the hike from £9 to £18.

Lastly, I've been with Virgin mobile for about 7 years so not done any pac code transfers. What's the method these days? Get the new sim then request pac code? Or get pac code, then buy new sim?

Want to make it goes through as smoothly as possible.
#13
Mine went from £12 to £13.50, then to £16.50 last month, I'm already looking to leave but if they also kill my £5 discount and put me to £21.50 I'll leave instantly.

get the pac code then you have 30 days to use it. during this time you buy the new sim.

Its a shame that in the t's and c's these days mobile companies tend to add a little bit where it says they can change the price at any time. Funny when the price does change, its always up and not down.


My friend joined talk talk after 10 years on ee/t-mobile, no complaints so far. And he complained every month or 2 when on ee.

I'll Probably end up going on a monthly contract and might end up swapping about until I get to a provider I like.

Only heard bad things about talk talk on this site but again, a lot comes down to location.

Hopefully Virgin will heomorage customers and lose lots of customers on their mobile network. The recent price hikes have taken the Michael. Without any upgrade to service like offering 4g.

The same happened to my dad, apparently they're eventually bumping up the prices for people with unlimited everything.
#20
Same here. From 10 to 11.50 then 14.50 a month back. Received a letter on Friday saying price would go up to 21.50.
No discounts at all.
Ridiculous
