2500 mins
Unlimited texts

30 day rolling contract

Unused data/allowance rolls over

Just thought I would let every one know what happened for me. I called them yesterday and really pushed the point that I wanted this deal, however I kept getting told that it was not available. I spoke to a few different people but the outcome never changed.

Today however I tried a different approach. I called and said I was speaking to an advisor who offered me this deal but the call got disconnected. She asked when the call was and if the advisor called me and I said it was literally 10 mins ago and that the advisor did call me to offer the deal.

She stated that the outbound call team are able to offer different deals and that she would not be able to offer this, so I just said that the last advisor spoke with his Manager before offering me the deal and requested that she done the same. She went away, came back and said there was a different system they could access and a few mins later she offered me this deal.

£7 for 2,500 mins, unlimited texts and 8GB of data on a 30 day rolling contract, happy days. I hope that maybe helps someone.

Thanks for your opinion, however anyone that has dealt with Virgin media customer service team will tell you that they generally do not have a clue about anything. The way I see it, this is a deal that is available to customers. I personally did receive a call from their outbound team previously but was unable to take the call at the time and asked them to call back. They failed to call back and when I rang back up to discuss the deal they said they had no record of it, although it was not 10 mins earlier as I suggested on the phone, it was a a couple of weeks prior.

It's not like I lied about a made up deal and forced them to give me it, we all know this available, it just depends on who you talk to and if that person is willing to do the legwork to get the best deal for their customer. Unfortunately this does not always happen. So I decided to take action.

I was only trying to help others on here get a decent deal.

As I said though thanks for your opinion, you've made me realise the error of my ways and I will forever try to maintain standards that will meet your standards.

I had contacted them last week about the iPhone X - they couldn't give me it due to some strange internal checks they do - its very weird even though I pay £90 per month for tv/broadband.

Anyway they phoned me yesterday and offered this deal...I couldn't believe it.
If this is widely available to new customers then its a fantastic deal
It's 2gb data but they have promo which x4 for life

i doubt it as he is paying £90 a month so for virgin to give him that deal is no skin of there nose cos they have probably got there money out of him already,but as with virgin you have got to beg steal or borrow to get a decent deal with them however long you have been with them

Laarni

I just rang up virgin as my wife has a Sim only contract where she is paying 9 pound and getting 4 GB of data I just called them up and they said it is only if you buy A handset

Any company using those numbers don’t deserve your business, just use say no to 087 or one of the apps that call them at normal rates and then don’t use them again.
I just called and got nothing.
£18 for 40gb or £9 for 5gb
Called the 0345 number and was told to call the sales number (which didn't work!!)

Wonder if u went on online chat and showed my order confirmation? Might work. Seems very strange that some get it and others don’t.
Not saying that I don't believe you but there's no mention of the 30 day rolling contract, I would check that they're not trying to con you, although to be fair at those prices I'd have no objection to signing up for 12 months.
I have this and also another line on the 4GB for £4 a month deal posted here a while ago. It was offered to me on the basis that I have virgin media broadband (well at the time I did). It's a 30 day rolling contract.

Amazing deal(highfive)
So many of these Virgin deals are posted every day, and they are all garbage. They’re not widely available and it’s totally random if you manage to get one. I vote cold every time. If it was up to me I would ban their posting.
Voted cold...
There is more to this deal than meets the eye, I think there is some vital information omitted.
This would be SIM Only deal of the century of the was on offer to everyone.
Hardly surprising you got the deal OP when you’re an existing customer paying them £90 pm already 😳

Agreed. I have tried, numerous times, each time, they only offer the stuff advertised on the website. Looks like I'm moving to 3 Mobile. TCB deal, 12Gb, Unlimited Min & Txts, £14 PM with £55 cashback = £9.42pm.

It depends which team you get tbrought to and if you are a customer. We got 3 £4 5GB and 2 £10 40GB in October I took them out even though we have BB in my wife’s name. They fell over themselves to give it to us guy even called to back to sort out the £10 deal a few days later.
I’ve read that virgin is changing to their own masses or something like that and that the service is going down the pan. Anyone have any experience?
I have just called to sign up for the £7 deal, but was advised that it is only available for longstanding existing Virgin Media customers. Disappointing! Has anybody actually succeeded in signing up for this as a new customer to Virgin?

OMG time to change contract. I'm paying £13 for 20 gb of data, with no texts or calls. Do you have to have broadband or TV with them and did you haggle? TIA.
