Looks decent!

Thanks. Gonna sign the other half up for the £10 a month one. If I wasn't still on the Vodaphone deal with free Netflix I'd do this.

Tried to get my current £8 package upgraded to 2GB but they said it was only for new customers Nice deal if you're a new customer who doesn't mind 3G though.

It's not just 3g it's really slow "3g" I've compared 3g on an ee sim and virgin sim before and the difference is staggering

​cancel contract and resign up then port ur number away and back probably all in and hour to do it all over a few days.. if it's worth it to you..

If you sign up get clarity on the free 080 numbers, in the small print it says these could be charged out of plan charges or maybe in, its not clear to me.
"Calls to service numbers: The way you’re charged for calling numbers beginning 084, 087, 118 and 09 has changed. The cost of calling these numbers will be formed of a combined access and service charge: we set the access charge and the company you’re phoning set the service charge. Your access charge for these numbers will be shown on your bill and is currently 36p per minute for Pay As You Go and 45p per minute for Pay Monthly. The service charge will be advertised by the company that you are calling. If any of these numbers are included in your bundle you will not be charged the access or service charge."

What kind of 3G speeds do people get on Virgin?

I remember reading some of the MVNO cap the data speeds... I have no issues with 3G, as long as decent-ish speed, get anything from 7-15MB speeds on T-Mobile and similar speeds on my work Three phone when outside of 4G areas. Both are perfectly acceptable for streaming music on Deezer and watching YouTube Videos.

Thanks OP just ordered

​Depends where you live.. Average speeds near heathrow i get 2MB.

Virgin mobile offer virgin media broadband customer for £5/month (2gb data) on the first 6 month. Can i request 4gb data too?

Not bad if 3G is okay for you.

Icing on the cake is the additional free minutes to call 08 numbers that can be put to good use

More for your money with Talkmobile if like Virgin you are happy on 3G.

Just speed tested my Talkmobile, 7.8MB down and 1.2MB up.

Voted cold VM are a nightmare when the sh*t hits the fan...

I just done mines got 4gb instead of 2gb i am on virgin sim only

Smashing!

And with VM it's not if it goes wrong it's when.
I had the unlimited minutes tariff and after a few hours of calls it cut me off and kept saying I had no credit, on a SIM only contract?

Customer services explained after 3 advisors and 50 minutes on the phone to them that it was that I had used all of my 'virtual credit', they reset it and explained every time it happens just call and ask for a virtual credit reset.

More hassle than it's worth.

In 10 years and 3 SIMO tariffs never had one day of trouble hot from me!
Although pricing is a bit erratic I have 3 x unlimited everything contract for £15 each, however that tariff is charged at anything upto £30!

They hit me with that crap too, I started the formal complaint procedure as I am an existing VM customer and then they changed their mind and said the tarriff was not available for their loyal customers!

I had been on a £27/month 5Gb Tarrif with 6000 mins + 5000 txts dsicounted to £6.60 for years and they sent me a letter out the blue saying this was an old tarriff and the loyalty discount was being removed.

So happy chappy. Asked about 4G when on the line and they said that is coming later on in the year.

Great spot OP, thanks!

Virgin Media customers only.

Their 08 numbers inclusive minutes are very confusing as their paperwork mentions 0845/0870 only then on bills it states 0800/0845 only but on their website it states all 08 numbers.

Even their own sales staff wasn't sure which 08 numbers were included with their plan. However, i took out the £8 per month plan two weeks ago and can confirm that despite the confusing literature, the inclusive minutes do cover all 08 numbers as i called 0844 and 0871 and all were non chargeable.

Their call signal seem better than ee even though they piggy on ee and their data signal is same as ee 3g, which is only slightly slower than ee 4g

when does that kick in from mate for you? mines from November. Ive got two sims going up to £18, but may get a cheaper deal for the OH as she doesn't use that much data anyway. I don't think she's gone over 2gb in each of the last 6 months.

You can click "No I don't" to the question: Do you have Virgin Media broadband, TV or home phone in your household?

I just tried to ring to move over to 2GB for £8, first, they couldn't cancel my sim-only upgrade that is due in 2 weeks time, secondly they hit me with the same only for new customer non-sense! Their customer service went rapidly down hill.

​When I select the £10 option, when you select the SIM size, it says if you continue you are confirming you are a virgin media customer, if you are not pkease select the standard option.

​You are correct, I didn't try it that way. I apologise.

I made the same mistake when i ordered my sim two weeks ago and got the same message that you got. I went back and started again where i clicked the no button before ordering and it went through fine then.
