Ok, so get one just to use the phone credit of £30 (for which you pay £20). Then sell phone for £6 on fonebank fonebank.com/rec…spx

I am going to get one just to use for non geographic daytime calls when I absolutely have to make them.

Beekeeper, where did you get the deal sheet from?

Remember the £20 initial credit does not count towards the free £5 for every £10 you put on it. So you are not going to get £30 credit matedodgy for this straight away ;-)

£35 phone on Nokia site . Not bad deal

Virgin sent me an email about it.

They did a similar offer last year ]http//ww…ia- with a better choice of phones.

I took them up on that one & to avoid paying the postal charge, went in-store to collect my two free phones.
If there's a Virgin store nearby you may be able to do that this time too.

Why is the network crap? I thought they use T-Mobiles network? Im thinking of moving over to Virgin so any constructive critisism is welcome.

I have been on PAYG Virgin network for 3yrs and never had any problems. I am however switching to Asda PAYG soon because call costs are only 8p/m and texts 4p
(Virgin cost me 20p/m and 10p texts)

Appalling broadband? Cable broadband is by far the best in the uk.

virgin does use t-mobile plus they'll be using orange soon as both companies have merged so the the signal strength will only get stronger. Don't forget it uses 3 for part of their 3g network too so I wouldn't say its crap at all!!

Just rang up my local Virgin Media Store this can be done instore just take proof of a bill

They do use T-mobiles network. Me and my wife have been with them 6 months and haven't found it much different to any one else we've used in the past. As is always the case different networks have 'bad' spots in different areas.

The only problem we've had was when Virgin charged us for internet use that we never had. We're on the sim only plan, have two completely separate accounts, and we both received inflated bills after around 4 months. Looking at the 'apparent' internet usage times it was clear there was an error on their part and they refunded me, I did have to argue a bit though which annoyed me.

Apart from that we're both generally happy with their service.

Virgin do use the T-Mobile network, which, along with Orange, uses a different frequency ( higher, I believe ) to O2 and Vodafone. As I understand it, the lower the frequency, the better it is at penetrating solid structures and this is the reason that Virgin and T-mobile users often have problems getting a signal inside buildings. That may be the reason some people claim it's a crap service.

Or it may be the Customer Service ( a term I use extremely loosely ) which is quite frankly, not very good.

But then I dont believe it's any worse than the competition, so basically, you takes your choice.

This was a cool hot deal from Virgin. I'm unsure whether they are likely to do anything like that again this year however though.
