Retention Deal: Virgin sim only 40gb, 5000 mins - £10/month (rolling contract)

Edited by:"gskgk1"Found 8th Oct
Got a call from virgin. I only have their home package (tv broadband and land phone) and they offered me this 40gb 5000 minutes and unlimited texts for £10 a month. It’s a pay monthly but NO CONTRACT. Also the remaining data from allowance gets added to the next month.

As can be seen above its normally £20 for 20gb , but I get double data and £10 discount for lifetime.

After calling Virgin I was told that the sim is conditional on buying a phone too

That's a blinder of a deal. I've just had a nightmare trying to get a decent retention deal posted on here yesterday from Three, but this is way battter.
Could you back it up with some evidence?

I'm paying £12 on sim only and getting a quarter of that! Seems too good to be true so I'm not voting until its confirmed

VM T&C's state that they don't allow tethering on their network. I spoke to an advisor and they said they wouldn't mind if it was a one off but not all the time. If we're paying for the data why should they care how we use up our allowance?!

Ive just called them and been told that the deal is valid if you also buy a phone. The cheapest phone will be £14 a month with the sim deal added = £24.
I will vote cold if the deal description is not changed.

I always tether on my 20gb plan without issues. I have been doing it for so many months.

Yup! Totally right. Was told about this last week. If you take a new mobile out you only pay £10 for the sim. Unfortunately you have to take out a mobile on a 24 month contract.

might be worth it if you can keep the £10 plan after the phone is paid off.

Ive never got a phone on contract as it costs much more than buying one on a deal for half the price!

I thought it was a typo when I read 40gb. I thought it was probably 4gb and you accidentally put on the 0. Awesome deal

Did try Virgin Mobile yesterday, as an existing VM customer I thought I would get huge discount, turns out Virgin Media and Mobile are two different things!!

Hold on, could you take the phone deal to get the 40gb then cancel the phone within 14 days n keep the sim? As I understand it, the two are separate... Where are the Ts n Cs anyone??

Did they ring you? or you them?

Just got this offer, can confirm legit. I'm still contracted with EE but deal that can't be missed out

They offered me more than 1 but recently renewed my wife's contract and buy out fee will be too much

I saw this deal and called them. First attempt told I needed to buy a phone, second attempt said I was a VM customer and she put it straight through and even then offered the second one.

just called them ( a few times lol) and was told by each operator that its only available when taking out a mobile phone with the sim only plan.

I asked to speak to a senior manager in the UK who confirmed the deal can only go through the system if attached to a new phone - and cancelling the phone or the sim within 14 days will cancel the other also.

40GB of data how much pawn can one person watch on their phones each moth?

Do you have to buy a phone too

Hottest cold deal ever! Unlucky OP!

My friend and I got this deal last night.
I am already with Virgin on the 20gb for £15 from January... my friend wasn't.

Had to cancel my contract to a PAYG and start this new one, on the phone 30mins in total to 2 different people. Took my friend less.

This is 'deal of the month'. Available to new customers only, so don't call the retention line.
