So my 11year old has been hassling me for a contract sim for ages. I've just called virgin and have been offered a rolling 30 day contract for £5 a month for the first 6 months. After the 6 months I will be charged £10 but I can cancel before that or phone up to get a new deal. For this deal I was an existing virgin media customer ( I didn't have a mobile phone with them) and had to bring a phone number over to use. For £5 a month I get 2GB Data , 2500 Minutes, Unlimited Texts,Unlimited Virgin mobile minutes and 2500 Mins to 0800/0845/0870/0808 numbers . I am also being sent a free payg SIM card with £10 free credit and 1gb data ( I think it had some other free bits on but I didn't get it all down) . It's not 4g yet but the lady said he will be provided with this free of charge next month when it's brought in.

I am now in sons good books so even if this isn't voted hot I've won mum of the day award

Be worth a mention in the title that this is for existing customers only

I'm not 100% sure you do need to be an existing customer. I had to have a credit check for the phone even though I've been with virgin for about 5 years for my tv/ landline/ broadband. It's worth trying even if you're not an existing customer.

I am with virgin and I would recommend but just be aware they do not cap your data so make sure they don't go over as it will be very expensive. Voted hot.

It's existing customers only, these deals have been posted many times, you can't ring up and get this without having a previous/exisiting contract for either mobile or their home services

I've just read that online too. With unlimited texts and 2500 minutes ( he might use 100 texts and 20 mins at most) he will find it difficult to go over and has been warned about picture messages! He may need to stay off Pokémon Go near the end of the month I think!

Wookiemummy.... Download the Virgin Media "Manage my Account" app from the Play store so you can keep an eye on usage.

Keep an eye on the Virgin Mobile website... They just had a " double up offer". If they do so again, even before the end of your 6 months, if may be worth changing deal earlier.

What you have is the £10 per month bundle.

I have the same, but just got double data (4gb) for the tenner.

I am with Virgin media and virgin mobile.. In Sept I try to leave but lady said in october 4G service will be available... no sign till now.. I have very much doubt that virgin will give 4g for general customer as they are running 4g service on mobile for business customer... Does anyone has any confirmation for date?

4G should have been October but it has been pushed back to November.

Current tarrifs might not be 4G compatible so when 4G gets rolled out existing customers will have to swap to a 4G tarrif.

I'm an existing customer of 2 years on a rolling 30 day sim only contract. This offer was on a few months back so i phoned up and it was painless. I'm on a £10 pm contract of 2gb, 2500 mins & unlimited text, enquired about this offer and now get an additional 2gb pm allowance so now on 4gb for £10 pm

Funnily enough, thats what they said last month. And the month before. And the month before. etc etc

That's not a bad tariff. We were on unlimited but after their latest price hike we got offered the £15 tariff for £10. The op said the higher tariffs would be 4g enabled 1st.

Personally think it was just a way of getting us on the £10 a month and not the £8 promo running at the time.

You say this, but, think about it, going into seniors/high school around that age, isn't it best we all give our kids a phone and contract, not sure if it's just me but the world is getting worse. Best to give them a cheap contract sim like this, along with a half decent handset if needs be.

I've been told "Next month" for ages although the local shops now started saying end of the year...

That said tariffs don't know or care if your in a 3g or 4g signal area. I suspect their is a bit of poetic licence here so they can moved people off older tariffs that may be too generous with data when you have a faster download speed, or its a chance to upsell you.

An 11 year old who travels 5 miles on a bus and walks through a town centre to get to school. To be honest I'm not bothered by the 4g as he is only 11. I just want something cheap that I know he will always be able contact me and allows him a bit of Data too.

I guess you wont reply to any of the comments since you have made an amazingly low level of comments in your time on this site, but its not for you to judge and unfortunately many kids are now in an age where they need a phone even for school. Schools are using google classroom to store so much stuff including homework and use the websites for timetables etc. My eldest can do her homework in her lunch break and upload it straight back to the cloud. times have changed, the world has moved on significantly.

I have the unfortunate pleasure of working in one if their high street stores. The last update was November but who knows? We have been told that current tarrifs won't allow for 4G

Have to be a existing customer with some sort of virgin service, that's how you'd get it for 5 for 6 months otherwise it's 10 pound for anyone whether you have a virgin service or not

it's the 10 a month contract you ask for highlighted here

not bad at all, remember it's an 11 year old using this and it's not CAPPED. So be very wary and hope you don't get charged more than you should but a great deal none the less

I have to say Virgin Mobile staff aren't being helpful with this deal at all. Like previous deal in September, some of their staff aren't aware, and others seem unwilling to do it.
Their customer service seems to have changed for the worse this year.
#39
I'm sure Virgin Mobile sends a text before you get too close to your limit when you’ve used 75% of your data, 95%, and then 100%. When it gets to 100%, confiscate his phone. Also make sure you change his phone settings so that Facebook videos only auto play when connected to wifi and not 3G, as this eats data. You change it in Settings / Videos / Use Mobile Data.....on the iPhone, but there will be similar options on other phones. Good luck!

Vermin media are the work of the devil... always promise and never deliver, move the goalposts all the time, and plain old lie to you... the bills are calculated by dyslexic nutters, every month you phone and query them with a person thousands of miles away with a poor grasp of English, with a solution promised, until next month...
They dont cap and the charges for overuse are crippling...
You have been warned.
