Its Back! Stunning deal for Existing customers of any Virgin Media Service. (And not too bad for Non-Virgin Media Light Users)

Free Phone Offer ends 30th November. (Usually £40 for the phone + £8.50 tariff per month)

£10 pm/18 months for None customers.

For existing customers, add to basket via the link given, then sign into quidco, track back to your basket on the Virgin Mobile website and pay (Tracks at £30)

So effectively 18 * £8.50 = £153 - £30 Quidco = £123

£123 / 18 months = £6.83 per month.

For none VM customers 18 * £100 = £180 - £30 Quidco = £150

£150 /18 months = £8.33 per month

Admittedly its only 100 mins (Additional 100 to VM network) and 100 texts per month but for anyone on pay as you go its a killer deal seeing that on pay as you go at carphone warehouse this phone costs £100, for an extra £23 (£50 for none VM customers) you are getting an 18 month contract with the 4gb included micro SD card Nokia 5530 phone!!!!!!!! And to top it off £20 Voucher for use in Nokias Music Store for MP3 downloads, stunning deal.

Delivery charge of 4.88, next day delivery via courier. Direct Debit arrangement needed for the 18 month contract.

Offer ends 30th November 2009. Quidco tracked for me within 5 minutes at £30

Offer suitable for light users that may already have a pay as you go phone that top up at £10 per month, this is far more cost effective, and a free new phone that is excellent as well as a £20 music voucher for downloading MP3s, a much better deal than the Carphone Warehouse pay as you go deal.

From post above - 'For existing customers, add to basket via the link given, then sign into quidco, track back to your basket on the Virgin Mobile website and pay (Tracks at £30)'

I'd be very wary of adding it to your basket, and then signing in to Quidco, as it's likely to have added a cookie that shows that it's not sourced via Quidco.

It's preferable never to visit the retailer's website before visiting Quidco and clicking to go through to the retailer from there, as the tracking cookies will be prior to Quidco of course.

True, but all previous posts when this was on seem to have got the £30 Quidco.

Thats the way I did it last time this offer was on here, however you can click through Quidco to the general Virgin Mobile website, click on the Phone & broadband tab, then back to Virgin Mobile offers for existing customers from there and add it to your basket if you are an existing customer The whole website is interlinked with tabs, just the quidco link only takes you directly to the none existing customer area, clicking the phone and broadband tab, then selecting existing customer pay monthly offers will bridge back fine.

If you are not an existing customer, then obviously just using the Quidco link is fine anyway as it takes you directly to the none existing customers area.

Give it an hour or so to track, if the worst comes to the worst with Quidco you can always raise an enquiry ticket, as long as they have the reference number from your Virgin invoice that they can then check with Virgin you should be ok.

It is an excellent deal, particularly if you have an existing pay as you go phone to trade in somewhere for some extra cash afterwards. Had mine for 2 weeks now after the last offer on here and it is excellent, especially with £25 free MP3s as well, 2 albums or songs of your choice. Works great as an MP3 player, and the sound quality even through the inbuilt speakers is surprisingly good for such a small phone.

Add to that it is a symbian operating system based phone there are plenty of third party applications for it to install too.

Looks like a good deal. Tempted...

If you are a light user its a great deal, if you are considering a new pay as you go phone (and this one is 100 quid to buy) and top up at around 10 quid a month its a no brainer deal in my opinion as this over 18 months works out far cheaper. On top of this, Virgin Mobile do allow in your contract deal to swap and change your monthly plan, so if there are periods whereby you feel you need more minutes, you could swap to a higher plan, then back down to the 8.50 per month as you wish.

How is an existing customers contract paid for? Are the charges separate from the media bill?
A couple of friends have a media contract so was wondering if I could piggyback on those?

You can EASILY piggybank off those, just ask them for their Virgin Media customer number, its not tied to their account when you get your invoice at all :thumbsup: The charges and account for Virgin Mobile are seperate from the usual Virgin Media Bill, you only need the customer number to validate you are a Virgin Media customer to bridge the website to the existing customer deals You still have to create your own account with your address details, user name and password, doesn't seem to be any validation against the Virgin Media customer as far as I can see. You need to put in your direct debit details, so I presume the fact they need all these details regardless of whether you are a Virgin Meda customer or not its certainly not at all tied, I am a Virgin Media customer, if it was tied to my Virgin Media account they wouldn't need me to enter these details, but they do, so I am certain you could use somone elses customer number. Try it out.

In fact i have just tried random digits in the customer account number in this format! and it let me proceed!

123456-78

Basically you can use digits as follows nnnnnn-nn

My son has a virgin deal for 300 minutes and 300 texts a month for £10.

Shame I can't get something similar with a free phone, he's still using a Nokia brick

You do get better allocation of minutes and texts on their sim only pay monthly deals in comparison to their pay monthly + phone deals, but I guess thats to be expected.

Getting similar with those sort of minutes and texts would be nothing short of a miracle, they are already practically giving this away as it is!

Thanks for this, I've gone for it as my first ever contract phone. I am a very light user but need a seperate mobile other than my work one.

Seems a great deal so thanks again.

Same for me its my first contract phone too, the only thing to remember with it is to cancel your insurance after three months free, else its 5.99 a month thereafter, make a note of that on the calendar. Also never use your landline phone to contact Virgin Mobile if you have any problems, they sting you on an 0845 number, speaking to someone from Virgin Mobile on your mobile phone on the number 789 is a flat rate of 10 pence, to check your minutes/text balance on 789 is free.

You're welcome for the deal, glad its of use to others. It is fantastic for light users wishing to upgrade from a pay as you go, especially ones that have been considering buying a new phone.

Ta for the info, appreciated. I wouldn't have thought about cancelling the insurance.:oops::thumbsup:

Is there a 100 mins and 250 text one on this phones, I need around 200 to 250 text per a month.

To be fair to them, they send out your insurance policy seperately with a user name and password details, you can cancel at any time, so even if you were shafted for a months insurance its easy to cancel.

As a VM customer there is the £12 a month tariff, 150 mins/other networks & 100 mins to Virgin Mobile customers and 250 texts.

Otherwise for non-VM customers its £15 a month tariff for 200 mins and 300 texts.

good deal

yes i have, but unfortunately not alcohol. lol;-)

Good deal - ordered mine and Quidco has tracked.

Its to replace a Virgin £10 sim only deal - I never use all the minutes and this gives me a new phone to play with. When I ordered, it asked me to log into my VM account and let me choose to keep my current number - very pleased with this as I thought I would need to transfer it later.

Help please, If I cant get on with the touch screen for texting (yes I know i have to move with the times!!), can i then put the virgin sim in my old unlocked phone? as my hubby cant use his "3" sim in his old unlocked phone, I am a low user so the the tariff suits me perfect.

This is for virgin customers upgrading, and for 24 MONTHS, sim only a better deal. and if u buy any nokia phone on T-Mobile any deal, u will receive £50 music voucher..
voted cold

I have a sim only deal at the moment and for £10 per month i get 200 mins to any network (which i hardly ever use) and UNLIMITED texts, now that is a good deal........:)

I would get a sim only deal 150 mins 300 texts £10 mth - T-Mobile NO contract sim and yes will work with any unlocked phone.

Can this phone be unlocked to work with Orange sim?i recently busted my pixon phone and had ipod stolen.This could be a decent stop gap til my contract with Orange runs out.

"Admittedly its only 100 mins (Additional 100 to VM network) and 100 texts per month (additional 100 text per month to VM network)."


I phoned up to confirm the additional text as there is nothing mentioned on the website and was told that it was only the extra 100 vm minutes that you got no extra text.

plus someone in a previous post said that you can get this on a £12 deal with more minutes and text but when you order the phone you can only choose either the £8.50 or the £18 tariff.

one other thing the rep that i spoke to needs to go back to charm school as i ended up hanging up on her because of her attitude

rep and heat added

Hi everyone, great deal!!!

would anyone be happy to help me and explain how I get through the checkout if I am a Virgin Media Customer? I am a customer of virgin tv, phone, and internet.
It asks for existing customer email address and password but mine wont go through

Thanks for the help, have ordered with the £8.50pm tariff and quidco tracked in minutes.
Will keep the phone for me and my daughter can have the contract txts rather than being PAYG.
Its a win win from me.
Just thought: Wife can have the 4Gb micro SD card for her Nokia too as she has tons of pants music she wants on it!

You don't put the phone in the basket when your in the media site, then change to the V Mobile site and it should show up in there. Checkout doesn't require your media email but a new mobile account unless you have a virgin mobile already

Ahh i realised my mistake, I kept trying to log into existing account even though I dont have one and then because this wasnt working, I thought I had to press 'create your new account.'
I went back and pressed new customer to virgin mobile :thumbsup:

Phone out the box is sim unlocked, you would still obviously have to pay Virgin the £8.50 per month until your Orange Contract expires, which would mean unused Virgin texts and minutes, would it not be worth waiting until closer to the time?
