I have this contract but wish I could cancel it.

The 4g is very unreliable. It just goes off randomly.

I recently went to Mexico and got a surprise when I returned. Unlike other networks, Virgin charge you everytime your phone rings or goes to voicemail when roaming.

Their customer services are also terrible.
If they openly allowed tethering I'd be up for it. Don't like the ambiguity.

Ridiculous policy, for all networks. Data is data, regardless if its on a phone, a tablet or a Nintendo 64.

*What* are you doing on your phone that requires more than 38mb/s?? I'm happy if I just get 300kb/s!

I can watch good quality YouTube and Netflix videos with no buffering at that speed

I'm currently on 40gb for £18 with them (not a retention deal) but because of some weird circumstances where I had their previous flash sale offer: 20GB for £15 and I had to cancel it because it wasn't possible for me to keep my old number so then they offered me this instead as they could not apply an expired offer on the new SIM. Spent 2 hours on the phone though..
Does anyone know if Virgin support WiFi calling on the OnePlus 5?? I was with EE and it worked fine but recently switched to ID mobile which do support WiFi calling but I can't get it on my OnePlus 5.

Wi-Fi calling works on my Nokia 8 if any help. Comes up as EE WIFI calling so should work for you
Can I use data abroad as I use it in uk?

Up in Scotland here. Jumped from 3 and no better. Nothing close to EE, should have stayed with them. Great value for money though.

Yip. Not rest of world though, USA +. Europe it's all good, where we go. You can't use more than the previous 3 month average when you were at home. Fair usage something, if I've read it right.

Based solely on my personal experience in my location, I was getting 1-2 bars less overall signal, and speeds around 30-50% of what I currently get on Vodafone. I ended up cancelling with VM within the 14 day policy

They did this to me, I complained and then raised a further complaint with the CISAS and got a full refund - chase it up. The basis of my complaint was that their roaming guide made no mention of these charges and in fact encouraged you to check your voicemail regularly!
I’ve used mine for tethering to my iPad frequently for past 5 years

Thanks for that.

I did actually make a complaint and never heard back. I rang them a month later and apparently they don't even let customers know the outcome of complaints if it's about "a valid charge".

I might try CISAS just out of principal.
This network is crap

I've always wondered how mobile networks can stipulate 'no tethering' but you'd never be able to enforce it unless they provided the phones and mandated their own policies on the devices!

No it isn't.
What's the Signal & Speed like compared to EE then?
I can tell you tethering is allowed, there Web chat support gave me there script as evidence that u can tether, also they are updating there terms, on all new 4g sim u can tether, I find there speed to be much faster then Three, Vodafone, EE and 02, I been getting close to 50mbps where as other network 30mbps or less.
I was on Three with unlimited 4g data could not use as speed was proper shyt

So tethering is still achieveable, just not supported, meaning if your tethering setup is having a dull day, you're not going to receive any support from VM to sort it.

Seems that in February they updated their t&cs and now allow tethering. It’s been mentioned in another thread on here and a quick google shows it up in a couple of tech sitearticles.

It’s just a ridiculous example to show that it shouldn’t matter what you’re using the data for (as long as it’s not illegal) - I think anyway.

To be honest I won’t use an MVNO for my main line any more, had enough grief with direct, a virtual network is going to be worse by definition.

Seems an accurate statement. The "no tethering allowed" phrase that was included in pre-2018 VM t&c is not present in today's 04 July 2018 t&c at (archive), where the phrase was "...It does not include using your handset as a modem to connect other devices such as laptops and tablets - also known as "Tethering" example in t&c at 30 Dec 2017 (archive).

Getting charged for VM is standard across all networks as far as I'm aware (o2 for sure). Always rmb to switch off your VM abroad if you don't want to get charged!

Only within the EU, if you need to use outside the EU then have a look at three network advance plans which lets you use your data in USA Australia New Zealand Canada among other countries.

Don't even think about using virgin mobile outside EU, minimum they charge is £5 per mb data also around £2 per minute to dial or receive calls.

Second that, my coverage is pretty flakey in and around Glasgow, and I get "stuck" a lot loading pages when browsing, not to mention quite a few texts saying I've missed a call which never rang. Regretting moving from O2, who share their infrastructure with Vodafone. Both seamless here, but I went for the £9 5GB rollover SIM only deal with Virgin... D'oh!

Just EU...Thing is that BT told me I can do this when I did a sim contract with them..but when I went to Barcelona I couldn`t even make a paid call from my phone:))Contacted them and told me that I need to wait 6 months to do that as I had ` a poor credit score `..:))So they didn`t allowedd me to use a FREE service due to my credit score.
I want to know for sure if I can use vodafone services outside UK but inside EU as at the end of this month I`m going in holiday..for a month:)
