40gb data 5000 minutes, unlimited texts Virgin media retentions Sim only deal £10

Found 18th Jan
Hi, i got a call from virgin media today and they offered me a 30 day rolling contract sim only with 40gb data, 5000 minutes, unlimited texts.

the catch.... you have to be a customer of some form of service from virgin already (i have virgin fibre and tv package). this entitled me to £10 off ‘loyalty’ and they added the promotion of ‘double data’ to give me the 40gb data.

i was driving at the time so i told them to call back tomorrow morning when i won’t be at work... i will update tomorrow after getting this deal if there is anything i have missed.

Great offer, but is there a possibility that while you were driving the Eddie Stobbart lorry that over took you, and covered your car in dirty water at just that Milli second when she said 'twenty' and it sounded like 'ten', due to wipper blade sound and '2 4 8 motorway' by Tom Robinson band blaring out of Eddie's lorry.
I called virgin two days ago about this deal and they denied it existed. I am a cable customer. Anyway considering they don't allow tethering I am going to another network
Q: Is this deal real?
A: it's better than real, it's pretend
I am using the same deal

If it was the other way round and you said you knew someone who had it they would then state they can’t view it due to DPA. Virgin Media reps in my opinion make it up as they go along.

That 0345 number let me find out for u
I got 40gb 5000 mins unlimited tex rollover data £18 a month flash sale if you look on the website its there
I managed to 3 SIM cards and a family member managed to get 4 the last time this was posted.
If you don’t use your full data in a month, up to 20gb data is rolled over to the next month
I have just come off the phone with Virgin Mobile.

The offer that has been posted is only for new numbers, as in customers who have other services with Virgin but no mobile. It is sales trying to hook new customers.

As mentioned, there is a 40gb offer for £18 and this is open to anybody. (until 31st Jan.)

I am currently on an offer from about 6 months ago which was the 5000 minutes, 20gb with data rollover. 30 days contract.

Was getting for £15, but just managed to get the same 5000 minutes, unlimited texts, 20gb with rollover, still 30 days rolling, for £10. I have 2 sims with them so savings of £120 a year.

Isn't Virgin backed by EE, and as far as I know EE allow tethering.

It’s been posted twice since it first hit in October, we got the 5Gb for £4 offer on 4 sims, then this one came on here and called cancelled one and took this for the daughter. At the time it was on offer but depended on who you spoke to and had to say your friend had been offered it and you were also a customer, I took the sims out the but we are customers in my wife’s name for BB. It’s bettervthan the other advertised deals as it’s rolling contract and like 12 month deals prices can go up but only by the same rate. All of the other benefits are in this offer.

You probably won’t get a better deal just keep trying.

Officially they don’t allow tethering however it’s not blocked on phones like companies used to do and you can tether, people have said that if they tether most of their data they get a letter and a threat to cancel the sim which no one seems to think they ever have but tethering is still allowed.


Saying that things are changing at virgin though they use EE up until recently all services went through EE but now Virgin manage the back end system and are changing everyone’s sims. They officially say that this will allow them to offer better deals which they have been doing and I worry that they will use their own sims to allow them to switch off tethering. Don’t use it much but it’s useful to have.


Also EE have been known to match these offers as well so if you are an existing customer might be worth a call.

I don't tether often, infact only time I did was when the Virgin Fibre went down.. and had to tether then.. lol Its basically why I have a 20gb data deal myself, to cover if the fibre goes down.
I'm not a virgin media customer

Officially they don’t it’s in the t&c but unofficial they do as they currently don’t block the feature on phonessaying that everyone is getting new sims as virgin take more control of the backend systems so you never know what will happen.
If I am getting 40GB of data I really would like to be allowed to tether as I cant see myself using all that just on the phone. It is a risk to take if they decide to enforce their T&C and block you. The other thing I would like to know, what will happen if you end your cable contract, lets say 3 months after starting the mobile contract? Can you continue on the £10/month even though you are not a cable customer any more?
thanks for some of the comments and heat for my first post it wasn’t the best but just wanted to share this deal. why some people are so sarcastic and dismissive when your trying to share a great offer is beyond me though
called VM today and got 5gb deal for £6
Edited by: "aazar" 19th Jan
I just called them and said my vodafone contracts were up for renewal, and I'd seen this deal posted on HUKD.
Was told it was expired but they'd honor it nonetheless, no resistence.
Got 4 x 40GB sims @ £10/month.

Thx:)

Just call again mate.
TBH, I called VM to renew my broadband first. Then asked about the mobiles and was told it's a different department that deals with that and they transferred me. Not sure if that would be a different team to the one you'd call directly?
have transferred 2 numbers to Virgin

I having problems with Missed call: this person/number called at 10:35 on 19th Jan but left no message.


The above service used to work and it stopped working

Virgin sent me a new sum card in the post to rectify the problem

Has anyone having the same problem

No they don't - officially it is not allowed & that is clearly stated. Not blocking it is not the same thing. Too much of a risk - use 4 or 5 GB against the T&C, then have no defence if they bill you (just think how much that would be at even 10p/MB).

"Tethering and peer to peer file sharing prohibited." Under General mobile then General on their sim only page for this tariff.

Also from their Acceptable Use Policy - this was the final straw for me; "Excessive use over 3.5GB of data per calendar month will result in your maximum bandwidth being restricted to 3G speeds (384kbit/s downstream, 200kbit/s upstream) on our network. We reserve the right to review these usage levels from time to time."

I think they must have wrote that 5 years ago (at least) - over 3.5GB is not excessive & 384Kbps is now 3G in the middle of nowhere on a bad day! 4 to 12Mbps would be normal (I think it can hit 30 or 50 theoretically).
