First 3, now Virgin Mobile. It seems owning a mobile phone has never been so cheap! The latest tariff offering from Virgin Mobile includes 100 minutes of calls, 100 texts, a free high-spec mobile, free voicemail and free Instant Messaging. Sounds pretty good to us!
After 3's £9 per month tariff, Virgin has undercut it by 50p to release a £8.50 monthly deal that will be available from tomorrow (February 10th 2009).
The package includes a choice of handset (see below), 100 minutes of calls, 100 text messages and free voicemail.
The handsets available are
Samsung G600 - 5 megapixel cameraphone
LG KC550 - 5 megapixel cameraphone
Nokia 3120 - 3G mobile with free instant messenger
Customers will also be able to take advantage of Virgin's mobile Internet service from just 30p per day - allowing access to online sites like Bebo, Yahoo Search and Facebook.
