I was browsing the Virgin Mobile website today and spotted that the Liberty Sim package is now available as a £10 tariff - 200 minutes and 200 texts.

I know this isn't as good as the 300 minutes and 300 texts for £10 available to existing Virgin Media customers, but for people who only have Virgin Mobile this offer isn't available to them.

Yeh good tariff, shame more companies don't go for these cheaper sim deals (Vodafone excepted)

Asda no 'free minutes' but constant low rates work out much cheaper. Cold.

if you do your sums correctly you will find Asda isn't cheaper

200 texts@ texts at 4p on Asda = £8 + 200 mins @ 8p on Asda = £16 total cost on Asda would be £24

so how can you say they are cheaper????:?

You should read the whole Virgin tarriff, not just what's printed in the offer (e.g. 200 minutes free, to where? ). Calls to other networks are 40p per minute, text 15p, and so on. I haven't checked any further but i am sure their tarriff for non-uk calls are sky high. Virgin are gansters and try to trick you into their tarriff. The company is dishonest to say the least.

You're quite wrong AGAIN- see below


You can use the airtime in your package to make calls and send texts from within the UK to any UK mobile network, at any time. And its not just mobile networks, UK landlines are included too

This only applies to the first 200 minutes/text. Calls made thereafter are VERY EXPENSIVE. I stick with Asda so I don't have count my minutes/text not to get ripped off. How much do they charge for calls made to europe and what are the roaming charges? I bet it's expensive too. This is how those people make their money from naive customers who never check the complete package.. But maybe you never use those services, than you should be ok as long as you keep to the 200 minutes. Still the offer is not great, a lot of hassle for £14 saving.

Well alot of monthly contracts charge you high rates if you go outwith your minutes. If you don't go over the allocated texts and minutes then this is a better deal than the asda sim. You may be right about calls in europe, but I doubt alot of people would be using this to call europe anyway.

Blimey , are you thick?, with Asda mobile it costs £24 for the same allowance as this deal, therefore you save £14 a month, PAYG is VERY POOR VALUE and not a good deal for the consumer, usually, with the exception of VERY low users ot people who cannot get contract deals due to pooe credit histories.

Also agree this is a good deal compared to ASDA unless you are VERY LOW user. You have to compare what the 200 mins would cost on each, if you are going to go over then look at a higher rate of mins on contract.

Like for like this is a good offer - comparing it to payg offers is always gonna be slanted - e.g, if you aren't gonna use the allowance on Virgin then Asda is better - regardless this seems an excellent £10 tariff.

Hot.

Sorry, my mistake, should have read £14 not £4. All I can say is that my telephone bill is about between £30 and £50 per months including mobile calls to all networks, landlines, abroad and roaming charges, and Asda is cheaper than Virgin. You can work it out yourself. But if you stay on a low UK, Virgin only usage (and under 200 minutes), maybe you'll be ok with Virgin but you run the risk of a substantial bill if you use more and call other networks..

what network does virgin use?

T Mobile

I have the 300 deal as i have my broadband with them and have been very happy with the service (was better when unused minutes rolled over) FREE voicemail too

Yes it uses T Mobile network but ive only once never had reception and that was in Telford

Big thumbs up from me

sounds a good deal but the tmobile/virgin coverage here is poor and always has been,always seem to be on vodafone Ireland when i switch my phone on :x

Thats the charges if you go outwith your minutes. Not great, but its the same with most monthly sims anyway.

Have been on this tariff for 18 months now
and it suits me down to the ground! If you can take advantage of the 300 min 300 texts
then do!

I regularly get a text offering the 300 deal for non virgin customers worth keeping an eye out for

how is it a lot of hassle for £168 per year saving?

Its also wrong to say if you'd use over the 200/200 its more expensive... If you were to use any more mins/texts regularly then surely you'd move to a higher Virgin plan or more inclusive sim only deal with Virgin or other network

I just changed off this contract, it's no use if you want to access data better with o2 simplicity.
It's okay for text and phone calls only.

We use one of these contracts, and I can confirm that the free minutes and texts apply across networks, not just for Virgin.

In fact, I'll drop from £15 to £10 as this will be enough.

Unless it's a business i never call landlines anymore?

My 300 mins & texts £10 with Virgin suites me down to the ground.

If you cant get the 300 tariff, then this is a HOT deal.

How can anyone work it out themselves when you haven't said what the £30 - £50 you pay breaks down to?
Regardless of that, why virgin only, the 200 minutes are to any landline or mobile?
If you are using your mobile every month abroad then I would suggest you are the exception rather than the norm for most people. If your £50 was only on uk calls (landlines or mobile) then thats around 625 minutes. Virgin would do that many for either £20+25mins @ 15p = £3.75, total £23.75 + 600 texts, or for £25 you would get 800 mins, 800 texts. If I wanted to use 800 minutes and 800 texts on asda then it would cost me £96.
Granted your usage may be different but I'll bet most people on here use their mobiles mainly in the uk almost all year.

I'm with Talkmobile from CPW for £6 a month hotukdeals.com/ite…ot/

Only really useful for light users I admit, but I thought I would mention it in case it is useful to anyone. :thumbsup:

my wife and i are on virgin she gets 1000 tex , 150 min for £15 and i am on 2000 tex ,300 min £20, only time i loose signal is in tesco!! and in my local (which does help sometimes) :-)

Why the fek would u wanna call abroad from your mobile anyways on Pay As U Go..

Daft a would say... Use Skype on your mobile or get a cheap Sim for calling abroad..

I am a Virgin Media customer and am on the 300/300 minutes/texts tariff for £10 a month. If you cannot get this deal then the 200/200 deal is a very good offer.

dont use this for data... 1GB costs £2000

No offer from Virgin Media is a good offer.You can only loose with them.
I was their so-called Broadband 's customer - terrible experience.Up to 7kbps during peak !!!! I have never met so stupid procedures like Virgin's.Obviously, it's not people's fault but they work for those scammers. I know another few people who paid high price for bargaining with Virgin Media. I am so glad I do not have to deal with them anymore and hope they go into administration very soon.AVOID

Contacted Virgin today to downgrade my £20 a month plan to liberty, was originallt £25 but as a customer so long was paying £20,
Been out of contract for ages with my Virgin Lobster phone which can no longer get TV since they cut the signals.
Asked Virgin to unlock and they wanted to charge £15, annoyed me as I am not PAYG and have been a customer for a couple of years.
So I cancelled and got my PAC code,
First time I have needed to call customer services. Shame I did not test them earlier.

I have just cancelled mine after only 3 weeks. The reception was so poor.Constantly cut off due to poor reception
