Just passed my local Virgin Shop and saw in the window that existing XL phone customers can have a free Blackberry 8520 on a 24 month contract for £7.50pm!!

The offer is 100 minutes, 500 texts and Blackberry Internet Service (others charge £5pm) all included.

Signed up and half way through sign up options it turns out that the only deal available for him to enter was coming up and priced at £7.15pm.

Total contract price is £180 (if you get the same deal as me £171.60). Phone alone must be worth £100, so works out at just over £3 per month.

Existing Virgin XL phone customers only though. He was able to confirm my details on his computer.

We got a leaflet in the post about this today - but prices were given as £10.21 for Virgin customers and only 50 mins and 250 texts. Calls to other Virgin mobiles are free. Nothing about XL users.

Appears to currently be an in store only deal. Saw it in the window (a sticker on their Blackberry offer display). Was offered 2 deals on their XL customers, "£7.50pm" contract. 50mins and 250txts or 100mins and 500txts!!!??? Both have calls to other Virgin mobiles being free and both come with BIS. Yes, I know what you are thinking.....50/250 or 100/500? oO

Like I say, when he entered my details and got to the offer and contract part on his computer, the only option available was for the deal to be £7.15pm....I'm well happy. Teenagers these days are crazy for a Blackberry and I can't beat that monthly cost. When he comes home from school my son will be made up.

not a good Blackberry this one - but it is a good price. Word of warning though - my teenager texts 3k-4k texts per month on his blackberry

That's where BIS comes in. Apparently they all use BIS to contact each other. No txting required and is included in the price
