considering the cashback likely won't pay out for between 3-6 months, how on earth can this be applied to the first month's payment ?

cold from me ..

well for a start i'm already with virgin and i'm getting a better deal than this ..

I just feel that presenting it as "effectively £2 for the first month" is misleading and inaccurate because it'll never happen.

what will never happen? the cashback?

for me, i went for it, i will keep it for a few months, hopefully get a retention deal like yours and my first month will effectively become £2 with the cashback is confirmed, it does bother me when it comes

Decent considering IF you can get the retentions deal after 3 months then this tariff will work out at just over £8.50 per month until then.

The're giving you false information.

They supply micro sims for the intended purpose of use in the iPhone.

I am even using a BlackBerry Monthly Contract 'normal' VirginMobile sim in an iPhone with no problems.

Data works fine on iPhones but I can't get photo messages to work

I'm thinking of this. But just need a phone to go with it.... Haven't seen any great deals on handsets for a while

the cashback will happen - eventually, but months down the line. to claim that effectively reduces the cost of the first months payment is, quite frankly, bizarre.

You're overpaying :)

I've got the same package for £9 a month .. ring them back and tell them that you've got family members who have had the same deal you've had but have been offered this package for a lot less and ask if there's anything they can do. say that you feel the only reason your family members got offered the lower price was no more than luck of the draw because your circumstances were identical. i've always found that the trick is to not go in to the conversation as a negotiation because they'll get defensive and only offer you the minimum they can offer.

if you just approach it as if you're geninely looking to cancel for a better deal elsewhere, i've always found this gets better results.

What does "Cashback valid on all simonly contract £12 and above" mean?

...wait, I think I've figured it out:
Cashback valid on all sim only contracts of £12 and above

How is this new? Had this for like 6 months now.

Bizarrely this deal has only just become "hot" - four days after the £10 quidco eligibility expired on 20 Jan 2013.
The deal no longer exists.
Expired.

good deal
#37
giffgaff is not unlimited (fair use policy) and cannot be tethered... their data plans that allow tethering are not cheap compared with the unlimited virgin sims that are truly unlimited (they may throttle the speed once you ger over 10 or 20 G in a month).

virgin sims are a rolling monthly contract so no long term commitment, with giffgaff (unless they've changed it) you have to remember to keep topping up with goodybags

giffgaff can be good depends what you want, handy for capping usage for kids phone

Do Virgin actually give decent 3G (or 3.5G) speeds?

I get 2-3Mbps with EE, yet people I know on 3 mobile are getting upwards of 20Mbps.

Mate of mine has virgin sim only and just got an iphone 4s but couldnt get on the net out side.

He called virgin today and they told him they havent got an iphone server so he wont be able to get online on his phone??

Anyone any thoughts on this?!?!? Never heard it before!!

Just ordered my SIM card and it gave me the option to choose micro-sim.. Guessing they work on iPhones or wouldn't supply the SIM card?
