I wouldn't trust this lot after the price hike issues I've had with them in the past. I wonder as this offer finishes on the 29th June new subscribers will be hit by there first increase in a a day or so after. This is from the t's and c's of the contract
''The charge for your airtime plan will increase with your July bill each year. Any increase will be in line with the retail Price Index (RPI) rate of inflation announced in the April before and we’ll always give you 30 days’ notice of the exact increase each year.''

​nice work
I'll stick with plusnet for sometime thanks.
Pity it's a 12 month contract as it would be very good as a monthly one.
I have been with virgin media for a number of years and have a TV/ Internet contract and until recently was paying £7.00 per month for a sim only 4g deal of 2 gb data 2500 mins and free texts. I had a £2.00 discount on this account already for loyalty. I managed to haggle them down to £5.00 per month for the same deal and got a replica deal for my wife too. I'm not posting this to boast but highlight that you can really haggle with virgin media. It took me a while to do it but I kept refusing the initial 'offers & speal' and reminded the operator that I was prepared to leave and that I had been a loyal virgin media and mobile customer. Haggle them down..... It can pay dividends if you are a long term customer. Hope this helps someone.
Been with them for 6months now and after my offer of £12.50'expired i decided to downgrade and there relling me i have to have a credit check to downgrade absolutely outraged
Looks like a good deal, thanks!
Some of your comments are worrying me. My wife and I switched to this very deal (for £8 each) earlier this month. Hope they don't put the price up soon oO

They were chargin me 10 pm this jump to 25pm I left
yes I'm another long term customer who Virgin thought they could try shafting. I'm now with ID mobile and no complaints
anyone know if you can tether with this SIM card
thanks
I was on the Unlimited mins, Unlimited texts and 250mb data sim for £5 per month back when the offer was on.

Everything seemed ok, it was used in my backup phone as a secondary line so i wasn't gonna use it too much. However this month the bill was £47... to my shock. The data had gone over (play store app updates) which were charged at £2 per session ie... 31kb cost me £2 numerous times adding up to £42 (+£5 monthly charge).

Absolutely shocked that virgin don't cap the data automatically OR AT LEAST give you a warning message that you're going over. I spoke to them and they say they want to be transparent, which made me laugh out loud.

When i asked for the pac code to leave as it was a 30 day rolling contract, they gave it to me without offering me any deal to stay. A couple days later i phoned them to see what other deals they could offer, more specifically i was looking for more data. They said they don't offer unlimited mins anymore. The best they can do is 1500 mins, unlimited texts and 2gb data for £9, i pointed ou that the same deal you just offered me is £8 on your website.

So in short... They don't want to keep existing customers. They offer new customers much better deals.

THREE UK are just as bad at offering deals. Im paying £30 a month with them and they randomly called me the other day giving me a "once in a lifetime special offer for existing customers only" deal. The deal was EXACTLY the same as what mobilephonesdirect.com are offering for £10 a month.

They sure know how to get loyal customers to lose trust in them very quickly. I give them that.

Thankyou
Recently went with BT Mobile for my family - they're offering 6GB/unlimited/unlimited on EE (their network) x five sims for £42pm + £40 Amazon/itunes voucher. Don't normally like BT, but this is a stonking deal if you need multiple sims (not so good with just one or two). Also includes free BT wifi. 12 month contract on first sim, monthly on all the others. Offer rums for another day or so. HTH someone.

Thats not true and you can do it online in your account.



I dont have my account details but not sure why they would need to do another credit check just for downgrading
I'm with Virgin and they are fine until something goes wrong. The Customer Service is beyond shocking and I'm now looking to switch when I can find a company with decent customer service.
Plusnet are pretty good.... lots of deals for£10

i signed up 2 months ago for £10 for 5gb data

you can put a £2 cap on it too just in case
I left Virgin mobile as the deal I had was ok, but only 3g, they wanted to almost double the price to give me the same deal on a 4g sim...I'm back on GiffGaff for now.
They've also blown it with me for home broadband, they lock you in to get a deal, then increase the price during that deal, called to cancel, but was told I'd have to wait until the contract ended...I'm gone once this contract ends, you cannot take your customers for granted.
I left Virgin '4g' wasn't that great at all.
EE it's definitely better than Virgin

I was on BT last year and they were faultless.

The only gripe i had was at time of renewal they gave me absolutely no deal.

I can't seem to ever get a good retention deal with any company i've ever been with. Got my mrs down to £8 though from £16 on her Tmobile contact.

I'll be happy to put up with this deal for the same-ish price in 12 months time, other things being the same. Meant to mention, don't think there was a credit check as it is on my existing landline account, and they also have the option to cap expenditure separately on each sim.

From what the customer services said to me was I have brought this deal this year i won't be hit by the rpi increase this year not that i believe what they said they offered me a new package was a great deal ran my credit check again they said it has all gone through you will start this package on your refresh date that day rolls around and I'm still on my old one I rang up and was told the package I was offered expired weeks ago and the lady who offered it me was wrong no idea why virgin media are using a South African call centre clearly they have no idea whats going on half the time

Seems a good deal as was paying £9- for 1500 minutes and 2GB data - so just switched it. If there is a rise it won't be until this time next year in which case you can change. I never use all my minutes and data anyway but it's always there if needed.
Edited by: "Flymo123" 22nd Jun 2017
The £9- rate is for 12 months so don't get how people are saying it will in crease in July? July 2018 next year maybe.

Branson never gives a sucker an even break - I avoid anything Virgin
Branson never had anything to do with the running of Virgin Media or probably any of his other Companies. They use it as a Brand name. Virgin Mobile Europe and Media is owned by Liberty now anyway.
£20 cashback via tbc
Voted cold as it is Virgin and their customer service is abysmal oO
Does whatsapp voice and video calls count

No - I use them all the time. They may use your data but not alot.
There is plenty of good stuff and knowledge here, but on some deals people just keep moaning round and round. Yes, we know you had troubles with Virgin, BT, Sky or any other company - all of us do have problems but we all need to use something. If you don't get good retention deal just go elsewhere. People moaning about large bills for extra abc - 99% of the time it is your fault - read t's & c's before buying contract - if you don't like what you see go elsewhere.
Does it allow tethering?
Not virgin but EE but I was told in March that I wouldn't get an rpi increase. Don't believe salesman crap even if they don't know they guess that you won't get an increase absolutely shocking
I'm paying 15.23 for the 14.50 EE 32gb deal interesting when that comes up in august
Have used Virgin Phone and Media for years never had a problem and whenever I have asked for a retention deal they have always obliged. Not sure there is a package elsewhere that is much cheaper than this? I don't mind Companies making a wee profit!
I've just seen the £20- tcb cashback but already ordered. Is it worth cancelling and doing it again?
I just left them and they asked why. Told them I was offered a better deal from BT and gave them the details/link when they asked.
No counter offer was made, which was stupid on their behalf as I hardly used any of my 2500 minutes most of the time and even my data use isn't that high. I'd have expected a better offer after a few years of me being with them.
If they had offered me 4g while letting me keep my 0870 inclusive calls I'd probably have stayed.

Thank you for this, just had a few hassles with Virgin and it will be handy to have this just in case.

I took up this deal, it's clear as you sign up that there will be no increases till July 2018.
