FREE Directory Enquires (118 180) for Virgin Media Customers

60
Found 8th Aug 2013
I have been with Virgin for years and didn't know about this free service. Found out whilst reading on their booklets they sent me.
BT Directory Enquiries costs £1.99/ min plus connection fee of 62p
Probably going to go stone cold but hopefully it will help someone.

Thanks for the tip op

Useful, thanks

Very useful if you have a virgin mobile.

Can't see myself using it at home, as you would be phoning up to get someone to use Google for you .... on the other hand that sounds well posh!!

every1 has a smartphone these days, don't know anyone who uses this service, COLD

I'm not a Virgin customer but have heat anyways, sounds good to me.

My parents, grandparents, aunty, both neighbours (eitherside) and a couple of friends don't.

i got that book too. i also didnt know you could delete a whole folder of recorded shows just by pressing "clear" on the remote. saves having to go through the whole folder one show at a time

Do you eat McCoys crisps, real men don't read instructions (but us nerds do) because we have better things to do with our time than deleting shows, just incase you didn't realise you can use the clear button on individual items too, not just folders.

People should get with the times.

I literally have just got another Dragon's Den idea. Free Directory Enquiries for Virgins!

Here's a typical example of a Virgin and there is a need for hair products I see >

I should probably go on The Apprentice too and win it.

get with the real world.
example I am in the front room and I decide I want to call someone, I know the persons name, and roughly where they live, so I go to my pc, wait 10 minutes... now what do I do? Is there a free service on the internet that I can get a private individuals telephone number?
instead I pick up the phone, dial this number, and in 30 seconds, I am speaking with the person I wanted to talk to.

That's if you can even have caller display. I've been with Virgin since they were Nynex and the exchange we're on in Manchester is not CLID capable.

Why?

Is this for PAYG mobile customers or only contracts?

Would help if you actually read the OP!

You couldn't make it up could you! X)

I think to make it clear its only for people on either landline virgin or virgin mobile but WHO ARE VIRGIN MEDIA CUSTOMERS (ie they have a landline/tv/broadband package) and not just on virgin mobile

It's not a free service though, the cost is factored into the charge for landline/tv/broadband. It's similar to Lothian Buses in Edinburgh saying you can now travel "free" on night buses with Ridacard (season ticket) whereas before there was a reduced fare payable. As great as this is, free is not accurate when it is really just included in the cost.

Voted hot because VM customers that do use directory enquiries should know about this.

Thanks was aware

Have some heat becsause of the idiots that voted cold

Ive been with Virgin for years and rarely read stuff they post out, i tend to wait for the bumpf to pop up on here, that way i get all the info i need.

Thanks for the heads up OP, voted HOT

judgey

its always been this not a deal

Your comment reeks of "I knew this and wish Id posted it now".

Shouldn't this be in freebies? Great deal though

If you've been with them over 12 months simply call Customer Retentions and ask them to waive the charge. I did and they did.

Read it carefully. Also for use on a virgin mobile, which I happen to have. Thanks.

I take it you are 10 years old or something ?

There are plenty of people who don't have a smart phone, don't use the internet but have virgin landline.

Good info cheers op.

Thank you, did not know about this and I am a customer.
