I got badly burnt by Virgin Mobile over the summer.

I got a one-month rollover for £9 (1Gb, 500 or so minutes, 1000 texts). Special offer via Carphone Warehouse.

What neither CPW nor Virgin Media either told me or made clear is that there is an automatic £50 credit facility - which acts as a cap on data.

All my previous suppliers automatically capped data (EE, 02, Three, etc).

Unknown to me, my new OnePlus 5 updated apps each day (using a handful of megabytes).

Virgin Mobile charge a flat fee for internet access everyday, regardless of how much you use (reasonable usage obtains).

So.... when I got to the end of the month, Virgin Mobile billed me an extra £39 for using 1.5Gb of data.

So.... Virgin Media and CPW - no thanks!

How much of the 40gb can you tether?

"Tethering and peer to peer file sharing prohibited."


Shame, It looks a good deal other than that
Uses EE's network

Virgin are sneaky with data caps. You can turn updates off your phone off or only allow it to update via Wi-fi
Reported link to a mod should be in working order soon
edit: they said it’s sorted, it’s not, if someone else could report it as I can only report a thread once
Edited by: "seaniboy" 21st Sep 2017
Still wondering with Virgin media if we can get any UI Voicemail ? like Hullomail ? Any app for iphone please ?
I also use virgin. It’s true after you use your data they charge you £3 a day regardless how much you use (could be 10mb or 20gb).

But they send you alerts at 80% data used and you can easily check online and with the app. You just need to be carefull. Whatsapp doesn’t use data what is neat

I'm with EE at the end of my contract I called them up today mentioned this offer and an offer 3 are offering 30gb for £18 EE offered me 30gb unlimited minutes and text with free BT sports for 12 months for 17.99 which I happily accepted. I voted hot for this deal because this is good deal as a new customer out there ATM.

@Smadmad i tether daily and I have no issues with VM
I was with EE but they would only match to the three £18 for 30gb offer..

Have jumped across to BT.. unlimited/unlimited/20gb for £25p/m.. plus £85 amazon voucher, plus £70 TCB cashback.. works out to £12pm and I still on the same EE network

Heat for this offer though if you dont want to mess around with cashback

Just got the Note 8 with virgin.

Works out at £10 pm for 40GB data!

£28 pm 0% interest for the note, can pay it off and upgrade whenever I want whilst still keeping the 40GB data contract.

All in all, £38 a month with a free Note 8 and 40GB data is by far the best deal you can get right now.

Was this an instore deal?
Earlier in the year VM did this deal for £15 on rolling month.

Things just don't seem to be getting cheaper as far as sim only deals are concerned.

Indeed everything is getting more expensive, owners of HUKD must be loving this, as demand for bargains increases.

All due to Brexit!

I've been well bumped then. I've got the s8 they are charging me £38 for my handset. I've managed to get the tariff for £5 for 40gb 5000mins and unlimited txt. So works out £42

3 year contract



Yeah, looking into it, it's not that good of a deal. Like you said, it's a three year contract, and while it's £28 a month for the phone - over three years that's £1008.

To be fair note costs that much I think

It seems to be £869 in most places; Samsung, Very, John Lewis, etc.
Saying that, although that's the breakdown striker33 gave, the data, minutes and texts would cost you £16 on its own. So I'd say the breakdown is more £22/£16; I think that would give a fairer reflection.

And there's £105 cashback with TCB, too.
It's a 3 year contract, but that applies only to the contract itself. Not the phone. You can buy the phone contract out at any point.

Im literally paying £10 a month for 3 years to have 40gb data, with a maximum of 20gb unused data rolling over to the next month, essentially turning it into 60gb for that month.

It would cost far less than most 2 year contracts would if I were to buy out the contract itself right now.

If I actually kept the note for 3 years, that would be around £450 a year including everything. I personally won't, but a lot of people on here who usually can't justify high amounts for a new phone and rarely upgrade, it would be a steal for them.

Oh and my quidco tracked at £70, so there's that too

Can I pick your brains over it, please? As I'm actually really interested in this deal, now that I've kind of got my head around it a little (I think!), but I do have a couple of questions...

When you say it's a three year contract, but that only applies to the contract itself, if after two years I wanted to upgrade to a new phone, I know I can buy the contract out, but how much would that cost? Would it be £28 x 12?

How much of the 40gb can you tether?

You're not allowed to tether on virgin mobile
Oh and if you were to do the deal over 2 years, it'd come to £1248. £52 pm.

So the note itself SIM free right now is £869.

That's £379 total over the 2 years for a contract with 40gb data.

This means you still get the contract at the usual rate right now @16pm for 20GB doubled to 40GB, and pay no interest for the finance of the phone.

And no upfront cost.

You can also make this even cheaper by taking into account that Virgin currently pay £170 quidco cashback for Note 8 contracts £45 and above.

If the £170 cashback is paid, then you're basically only paying £700 for the note 8 over 2 years.

It would be yes, as that would be the remainder to pay for the phone.

I've also added another post detailing the 2 year option instead, which works out a bit cheaper for the device itself.

Many thanks for your help, it's much appreciated.

One last thing: when I go onto Quidco, the maximum amount of cashback is £90 and that's for contracts £45+?

Wouldn't this deal fall in the £35-£39.99 category?

If it's the £38 then yes, the maximum is £70 quidco. It's what tracked for me.

The promotion may have ended if it's not visible, but there were specific cashback rates just for S8 and note 8 before.
Is this speed limited to 40mb making it slower than 3G like all other Virgin mobile deals ?
Must be a virgin customer
