I have broadband and phone from virgin media and I added virgin mobile 100 minutes and unlimited texts @ £5.00 per month last month.

I have been with virgin mobile for 1 month now and today I called to get PAC code and they asked why I wanted to leave. I told them about the T-mobile deal on here for £7.82 and they put me on hold for few mins.
Then he came back and offered me 800 minutes, unlimited texts(3000), 1 GB internet and unlimited(3000) virgin to virgin on a 30 day sim only deal for £6.43 per month.
I took the deal as it suits me fine.
My friend who is not with virgin mobile but has virgin media broadband and phone tried to get this but he was offered only the £5 sim only with 100 minutes and unlimited texts.
Three of my friends who have virgin mobile phoned up and requested PAC code and all of them got this deal for £6.43, the same one I got.
So if anyone is on virgin mobile who would like to get this, give them a call on 08000520238 and say you want a Pac code and mention the T mobile deal and you should be able to get this deal.

Hope it helps you.

yet another retention deal :D

I work there and this is not just dependant on you saying you have seen a deal elsewhere, it is dependent on what the system will offer.

A good few of you will get a similar offer, but not everyone will get this kind of price.

you wont get it, you have to have at least a sim only or contract to get a retention deal.

Think I might post my staff deal up on here as a new deal and see if people vote it hot as some people may be able to get it
#10
I've been with them for 17months now out of my 18month contract. Called them a few days ago, wouldn't budge on any sort of deal. Mentioned to them about tesco SIM only deals, they wouldn't match it. I get charged every month for my free internet usage! I have to email them every month in order to get a credit, a real hassle! Might call them on the day my contract is up and try again to get this deal!

Makes sense to me. When i wanted leave my Virgin pay monthly contract six weeks ago, they offered me a good deal to stay (Basically the £20 sim tariff for £10). Fine for me, but not as good as the OP's. The moral is the same as it is for many products these days. As soon as your contract is up, shop around and try and get your existing provider to beat it. Bit of a ball ache but increasingly necessary.

Getting stuff out of Virgin is like bartering in a Middle Eastern bazaar.

My contract ran out last week and we lost our fone signal for most of the day at home for 11 days due to mast failures, So when I renewed the other day I got £35 compensation ( 2 phones) , a new Samsung chat 335 wifi fone,and a deal of 100 texts 100mins and 1gb internet a month for £10.32 ( which is more than enougth for my usage)

OMG oO That is SCORCHING!!!!

Yeah I got this deal a couple of weeks ago. Not entirely sure I'll stay with them but I'm happy for now.

I've heard a lot of people complain that the discounts with Virgin don't get applied properly and they have to ring up every month and go through a whole load of hassle just to be able to pay the price they first agreed.

At least with the T-Mobile deal their customer service may be very inconsistent but at the end of the day they manage to apply their discounts properly.

I can agree with this sentiment. Got offered a retention deal by VM, so i decided to stay with them. The guy agreed on an X amount every month and guaranteed that price will stick for 12 months, even if there are 5 price increases.

Then we got the contract through in black and white, which stated an 18 month contract, not 12 and almost £20 worth of extra cost then we agreed. Called them up to cancel service under the 7 day cooling off period, they told me to ignore the contract, it was sent out incorrectly.

7 days cooling off period then passed and the bill came £10 more then agreed. Gave them a call, explained the situation, they knocked off £6 but insisted that due to price increases we'll have to pay the extra £4 every month, despite telling them what was agreed. They told me they couldnt do anything about it. Now, for the 3rd month running, I keep getting the extra £10 bill and have to call them up every month for them to manually adjust the direct debit. Also, when i ask them how much extra i would have to pay a month to go from L 10 mb broadband to 30 mb, they tell me £28 extra. Quite inconsistent.

Virgin mobile are not worth the hassle. The offshore CS is very very poor and so is the UK based one. Good deal as long as you don't have to go through to CS.
It took them more than 15 minutes to tell me that I should call back in a few days to see if they had received the handset I sent back as I wanted to cancel the contract. While the best deals use to make the difference for me, I am gradually moving to companies that offer a better customer service, while still keeping a balance.
Got rid of Abbey/Santander. Virgin mobile. Wish I could get rid of Virgin media but for the broadband speed. Orange is gone as well.

My wife, an existing Virgin Mobile (+Media) recently tried to upgrade her PAYG Sim only deal for their £9.99pm Blackberry deal but was told in 3 separate phone calls that it was for new customers only and she couldn't retain her number. As a result, she got her PAC code today to transfer the number to her new Three phone. Virgin are also looking at an ASA complaint into their advertising as a result. Bunch of muppets.
#24
not sure about virgin, i have them for my tv, broadband etc and seem to be pretty decent, although i couldnt rate any higher for this new giffgaff at the moment. order a free sim, comes within 2 days, comes with £5 free credit, and add an extra £20 and you get unlimited texts, internet, and 1500 mins?



been using this thing for a month or so now, and dont think you could get much better :D

cold ... too much messing around, would be hot if could buy straight off site

andy182: for those who are able to get this tariff or a similar offer, how long does the offer stay on the account? Does it expire after a certain period and goes back to full price?

My other half just got the deal by asking for her PAC and she's an amateur when it comes to mobiles/negotiation etc. Plus it means she doesn't have to change carrier (and I don't have to deal with the inevitable hassle that will involve).

Thanks OP!
#31
Hot deal - I got the t mobile sim yesterday. Only wish mobile operators would offer better upgrade deals then that way customers won't have to leave or shop around...its such a hassle!!
#32
I can't vote hot for this so abstaining. 2 reasons;

1 it's a retention deal and in my experience Virgin are all over the place with consistency on this sort of thing, and I've had similar problems with Virgin as in post #21.

2 I'm still trying to get into my Virgin email account - that I've been locked out of for months - to take a look at the billing for the two Virgin mobiles I've already got. And I'm not happy with them.

Kudos to OP for posting though.
#33
niceeeeeeeee
#34
for everybody who goes for this deal and gets it keep a close eye on your billing each month to make sure right amount taken out.
i have been on 800 min unlimited text and 1gb internet for 8 months now and still have to check it!
#35
I just called and now i have this deal thanks
#36
I tried to get this but as I was already on a retention deal (300mins, unltd text and net £9.68) the best they could do was 600 mins, unltd text and net for £10.43 p/m.

These deals are rolling 30 month contracts which don't expire, I always get a text which says my minutes have been added but at the normal contract price (£18.68 for me) but when the bill email comes through its always charged normally. Though I have had to phone to correct the random loss of included internet once or twice before...

Call them 30 days / 1 month before else you'll get stuck another month!
#38
Just gave them a call and was refused point blank, she even promised to send me my PAC within next few hours.
#39
I just phoned and got the deal in less than 10 minutes! My deal is not 800mins but 600mins all the rest is the same and 3000min Virgin to virgin for £6.43.

Thanks!!
