Virgin Mobile have the BenQ Siemens E61 on pay as you go for £49.99 on their website. Purchase via their lifestyle rewards scheme in order to get 20% off. Basically, all you have to do is enter the code "14000" at the checkout and it will bring the price down to £39.99!! Delivery is £2.99 so it's £42.98 delivered. There's £35 FREE AIRTIME included so you can get talking right away and save plenty of money. Don't forget QuidCo cashback at £8; meaning that you get the package for just £34.98 delivered... less than the value of the airtime you are receiving, never mind the phone!

To purchase via QuidCo go to QuidCo's virgin mobile bit, click on their link then change the end bit of the web address on the pagew which has loaded so that it reads...

Does anyone know how long the credit lasts once you have made a top up?

I don't know that exactly, but I do know that if you choose to pay by direct debit then you don't need to get top-ups and the phone stays permanently connected. They'll also send you an itemised bill monthly.

Yeah, it's called a contract...

:-D

I assume you get a £20 and £15 top up vouchers. I would only have this phone for emergency use. If each voucher only lasts say 1 month then after 2 months the phone would be useless. The minimum top up card looks to be £10 so if thats true it would cost £120 a year to run if its used or not.
Would this be correct?

No it's not.

I've been with Virgin Mobile for years on Pay As You Go paying by direct debit and with no contract or monthly fee at all.

They cant take credit away from you, could you image how much people would complain if they topped up with £10, if they didnt use it in one month the credit would disappear..
Im sure the credit with this phone will either come preloaded on the sim card to stop you selling the vouchers or you ring up to claim it.

The £35 airtime seems to be just ordinary airtime. There's nothing on their T&Cs to suggest that it ever expires.

They rarely close accounts. You don't have to top up every month on any pay as you go network to keep your account, however some networks close your account for a long period of inactivity. If you make a call or send a text every couple of months then you should be fine.

Thank you mikesmith165 and duckmagicuk2 for your replies. that does seem to make more sense to do it that way and this offer may be ok for me.
I had a look at their T&C and couldn't find an answer so i did do some reseach before asking......freddy

hi, i've also been with virgin a long time and you have an unlimited time to use the vouchers.

you can pay by direct debit on pay as you go (they might do a credit check to do this).

also if you are an ntl/virgin media customer (with say phone and tv) you can get 300 minutes talktime + 300 texts (both to any networks) for only an extra £10 a month!

i got a phone from virign and the credit is in card format like you would get form the shop so you could see it on. its one of them scratch of to find the code and enter into phone
#14
dont forget quidco forgot to add
#15
Can the phone be unlocked?
I've read somewhere that Virgin will give you the code for free if you spend £35 on airtime, so would the £35 spent when buying the phone qualify for this?

It's £30 on further top ups. Having said that, it would only cost £10 to unlock the phone anyway.
#17
You could quite easily sell the phone for at least £30, I intend to use the sim in Santorini this year. I called Virgin earlier and they confirmed that there wasn't any expiry on the airtime.

Could we use www.virginmobile.com/tribe which will give a 25% discount, instead of 20% discount by lifestylerewards.

You could, but it's intended for staff... you need to enter a staff code later on. Some people have been making these up. It's upto users to decide if that's morally acceptable or if they want to take that risk.

Does anybody know if this phone is SIM locked? I need a phone for a Vodafone SIM
