36 month contract are they taking the P?

The battery on my Samsung has a short life coming up to 2 years on its contract

There are a few providers doing 3 year contract. It’s not the phone being worthless that would worry me it’s if the phone will last 3 years.

Where can i get it for £179?


You can't currently, closest I can find from the same supplier I used is £199 they're all unlocked, the one I purchased was cheaper as it's locked to EE. Smartfonestore is the place I bought mine.

I suppose the data would do me until lunch time on the 1st day of the month O_o

Wife has this phone and she thinks it's great.

From the reviews of the phone and what you get in the contract...not great

Cold - not pro ps4

looks good to me if you are in the market for both items and in need of a contract to boot.

Offering 50Mbps for £28 or 100Mbps for £33 but both are for new 18 months contracts. Either way they are not super deals I'd say.
What is even worse, you can get TV+Phone+Broadband 100Mbps for 12 months for £30/month on a 12/month contract. Yeah, they ought to charge £20 for installation but you can get that back on USwitch and top it up with £40 cashback.

Virgin Media is really milking current customers as much as they can.

Each year they increase the bill by 6.3% which is just not acceptable.

Not sure if I think these companies may have put in place a 'you can't re-sign for x about of time' I'm not really sure if they'd even bother to check but I've never tried that tbh.

If do you live with someone above the age of 18 then you're free to sign up under a new deal customer under their name and just use your banking details on the Direct debit form I know people who when they've been offered a dud deal said "Right then, I'll just get my SO to sign up as a new deal" and they've then gotten the same deal without having to actually do it, Virgin are a funny company though I honestly hate dealing with them.

While people are willing to part with such ridiculous amounts of money then they'll continue to pull your pants down. The only thing revolutionary nowadays is the price!.


Actually someone raised one of the best points I've ever seen or read in another thread elsewhere, I tried to emphasise it. If you want to use iOS (explicitly therefore, Apple only) then the iPhone X is pretty much the only choice. For Android, there is a huge choice and therefore competition is higher too - I use both as I've frequently said before as I can't get everything I want from a phone from one or the other alone.

Yes, you can vote with your feet but people aren't just going to boycott a phone or product because of the price, most people will just accept the high price and get on with it. Doesn't mean I like it either but sometimes that's the best option. But one thing I'm not going to do is pretend I didn't pay full price by masking it with a ridiculous 36-month contract.

Be aware that Virgin are actually charging something like £1255 for the handset, so the 0% finance offer isn’t as good as it seems on face value

Ridiculous hyperbole aside, it is a very expensive phone but not that far …Ridiculous hyperbole aside, it is a very expensive phone but not that far off the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, which is widely considered the one of the best Android has to offer. If you genuinely appreciate the features the phone offers and want the best that iOS has to offer then there's not a lot of choice. I bought mine outright on pre-order and don't regret it. I'll use and enjoy it each day - I haven't sacrificed anything to buy one.I still disagree with 3-year contracts however Virgin paints it, even if it's a Freestyle contract where the phone is financed and the airtime is able to be cancelled - it's like O2 Refresh but worse and I don't trust the performance of MVNOs, when the networks get congested at peak times, they are the first to suffer - go direct with EE, Vodafone or O2 for the best network service IMO.

As for lying about the price, check it price on ebay you tit
Edited by: "machomansavage" 1st Nov

people lets get to the task in hand, instead of endless debates of what phone is better . this is a deals website and should be discussing whether this is a feasible deal or not.

there is another option that is not really discussed and that is buying the phone yourself upfront and getting a SIM only.

if we used this as a comparison, this is what my calculations say:


£38 pm x 36 months = £1368

if we remove the £699 upfront cost of the phone your left with £669. we divide that by 36 months and the monthly tariff will be £18.58.

so the question is whether £18.58 is a good deal for 5000 minutes, unlimited texts and 40gb data.

if you didn't want to be tied in over 3 years they offer 2 year option

£52 x 36 = £1248

remove the £699 upfront phone cost and you are left with £549

£549 divided by 24 months gives us £22.87

obviously you need to read the T's & C's as each company provide different benefits.

it does say the roll over unused data, but unclear if the 5000 minutes is cross network. (can't assume)

having checked all this, I think its the best deal so far! I'm not in a hurry to upgrade but the 40gb data is what gives the value.

you could buy the phone outright and find a SIM only deal, but would you get a sim only deal that could give you this amount of data. without data minutes smartphones are useless and costly

hope this helps

If they refuse to give it to you for free, then as soon as you have had any of those ppi or accident phone calls, ring up and insist because "you feel vulnerable and harassed by them"... I think they have to then...

Yep didn’t say easy but comments were made on whether it was replaceable well my answer was it is. I wouldn’t follow that guide. Same as the 200 plus guide on servicing your car. I’d take the same route for both. Find someone professional and pay them to do it.

As a current very customer the £100 extra is out for me but have been doing some digging on pricing.

This virgin deal shouldn’t be cold in comparison to others such as O2, orange, EE etc as they are charging over £2k for a 20gb 2 year deal.

To compare 64gb iPhone X 2 year:

Virgin. 2yr 0 + 24 months payment

5gb + rollover data 2yr £58 no upfront. £1392
Or 3yr £40 no upfront

8gb + rollover data 2yr £61 no upfront £1464
40gb + rollover data 2yr £64 no upfront £1536

£1536 total for 40gb also £94.50 tcb and like O2 Refresh you can payoff handset and cancel anytime but the penalty is high as the handset cost is set high.

Don't worry, you will definitely get a call. I have always received one so hopefully you should.

Which package and for how long is the contract for?

It is good advice to just cancel and wait for a phone call from them in a few days, but beware what happened to us, my wife was at work when the call came to her phone and she couldnt answer it and they never phoned again !

Negotiation is simple.

At the end of your contract call and say you are leaving, don't bother having a discussion with the advisers at this point.

Wait until they call you back (it may take a week or two), you are now talking to the people who can do the good deals.

Yes, frustration understood, and VM's sales business model clearly needs to be gamed.

But, they have the best reputation for broadband provsion in my area, and if HotUK'ers can start with a decent deal as new customers then hopefully the annual negotiations might be a little less of a chore?

(Aside, I'm not sure how a negotiating strategy that works wouldn't count of a 'deal' here - whilst appreciating that it isn't as easy to get as just clicking something cheap from Amazon? Given that VM's cancellations team clearly wany to avoid a lost customer, I'd also be keen to know what bargaining points others used).

What are Virgin Mobile like in terms of speeds? I know they use EEs network, but are the speeds similar?

How about customer reviews service! This is a seriously tempting deal...

You should be in luck, but to be sure, I would probably go to a pound store and buy a Virgin Mobile PAYG SIM and put this in your iPhone and check it works before you sign up to a contract.

You don't need to buy any credit, once the SIM is in your phone just call the Virgin automated service and ensure you can connect through to that. If that works you should be in luck to get a contract!

Top cash back has so far tracked showing as £49 quid but this could come down to £45 I believe. So if that pays out this will be £11.91 per month, which is fine for me.


You only need to have a payasypugo number to get it and some have got it wothout
