Hi guys, virgin mobile have a black Friday deal on - sim only with 20gb 4g data for 15/month.

Im pretty sure the data rolls over too!

Definitely a deal to check out if you just ordered a new shiny phone from Very...

Have used them for a few months and coverage/speeds seem to be fine.

Edit: they also have 6gb for £10/month!

Still nothing compared to the 5gb for £4 they had few weeks back (I so need a time machine )
Also 3 offer 12gb for £12 not really not that great.

...
Is this a 1 month or 30 day rolling contract ?

Brilliant, just called and got them to drop me back down to £15 as it had gone up due to RPI%

I phoned EE to say I was leaving (had £9 contract with only 1.5GB) for that 3 offer, they gave me the same deal for £13 a month so I stayed to save the hassle. Some amazing deals available if you're smart enough not to buy an iPhone every time a 'new' model comes out...

I assume you were with EE already? If your tied into a contract how can you tell them your just leaving wouldn't you need to pay a cancellation fee?
Deals are ok but gutted I missed the 5gb for £4 virgin deal. I only have a budget of £6.5/month for simo contract and need 3gb of data and at current that's not possible (ignoring the tcb/quidco deals from 3, as actually getting the cashback seems impossible!)

Youve got a long wait ahead imo

Right...I'm going to get on the phone and do the same!

I really rate Virgin Media's SIM Only plan. I love it when I have 20GB data + my rollover to stream when out and about .

You could just your friend has the deal and you want them to match it. Good luck

Great deal, but in the drop down menus it says minimum term 12 months, then in legal boring bit it says 30 day rolling contract?
Anyone know if it's 12mths or 30 day please?

Lol I've tried that with various providers various times and they say that they deal with cars individually

What is virgin like compared with EE? Is the speed the same as I look to tether to run Xbox live when I'm away.

No tethering allowed

How do they know if you are tethering or not

Depends on the phone.
iPhone - remove personal hotspot from menu.

I don't know "how they know" but a few weeks after I joined them I tried tethering and my all my data allowance just "vanished" in seconds.

I think they test for multiple connections.

I tried tethering an S7 edge a few days ago on a Three contract that didn't allow tethering (I didn't kbow at the time). Don't know how they know, but they know. Showed as connected to the Wi-Fi but no pages would load, so somehow they throttle it to zero when tethered.

Nice deal but I'd want to tether that 20gb so no good for me

I've got no tethering with Virgin. Except I've been tethering full 4G since January.

I've tethered to my Xbox and laptop just fine without any problems or allowances disappearing ... Though most of the time I have a VPN running so that's probably bypassing Amy restrictions. I've also torrented using the 4G too.

I got the £10 40gb deal a couple of weeks ago. I tethered about 500mb in a hotel and I've not been beaten up by Branson's Boys yet. In reality tethering is possible on a Virgin SIM and Virgin potentially turns a blind eye to it, probably based on various secret conditions.

If iPhones can have features turned on and off per SIM/carrier, that's just another reason why iPhones are crap.

I doubt your anecdote. Did you receive a communication from Virgin? I don't believe they can just remove your data allowance and start charging per MB without warning, even if you break the T&Cs.

I believe it's officially slower on Virgin, even though Virgin uses EE's network. But as long as you're not trying to watch 4K videos on your 6" phone (if you are you need to have a word with yourself) you should have no problem.

Check their coverage map.

i assume you were already with them on contract when you phoned?

also i keep seeing people who are on contrats say they phoned their provider threatening to leave if they didnt offer a better deal, but what i dont get is, surely if your tied into a 12month sim only contract you cant just leave? surely you would at least need to give notice and pay a cancellation fee .... or ultimately actually at least serve the entire term of the contract? NO?
