I've been trying to find it too i know seaniboy knew some stuff about it. I'm sure he'll read this thread as his interested in mobiles etc..
On this side we have calls and data on good price and then we have our council tax booming high.
It's not been mentioned yet but you will be tied to a 12 month contract with this
I'm not dissing Virgin Media but Virgin Mobile is (poo).

The throttling is so bad around 10% of my calls didn't come through when I had full signal, then hours later you will get a message to say that a voicemail was left. It won't be long before you miss an important call, and by the time you find out it'll be too late.

I switched to ID and never looked back for £10/month (30day rolling contract not a year like Virgin), the service is miles better.
Good price, but no tethering.

Officially no..but unofficially...

Let's just say my 20GB plan (30GB+ after rollover) is being used well when needed
cant see the deal anywhere?
I can't see it either. Customer services do not know about it, or are good at lying

12 month contract.
Tempted. EE deal now finished. Heat added
Just received two 4g Sims from virgin. One works fine. The other won't accept incoming calls or texts. For some reason only outgoing calls and texts can be made. I rang virgin and they said the number wasn't registered on their network. I asked how can that be when it has been with them for the last three years. It seems that not receiving calls and texts is quite common with virgin 4G and jsnt just restricted to S7 users. On the SIM that did work they sent me two texts to install some software. On the one that didn't work I did not receive the texts so you think the solution would be simple. Apparently not. Buy a 4g SIM from virgin at your peril.

Ah so that explains why I had text messages through late saying I had a missed call at 16 43 when my smart watch didnt let me know my phone was ringing.

Thanks

I've not been with them for around 3 years now, but before that I was with them for a few years.

Most the time I had this issue it wasn't something I was overly bothered about, but every now and then it was an important call (picking up car from mot, picking up parents from hospital, going out with friends etc) which obviously became very frustrating.
I rang Virgin a few times about this and they said they were doing this and that, but it never changed.

The last straw was getting my parents from hospital, rather than pay parking I went to a nearby pub, had a meal and awaited the call from them with a full signal. After about 2 hours, I rang them, they'd tried calling me a dozen times and then rang my brother 15 miles away to get them, he also tried ringing me. Once I hung up, I then got a load of messages through telling me about the missed calls from them for the last 1 1/2 hours.
Never again for me.
I wouldnt bother personally. There is a widespread network issue that affects a number of their cell towers. The problem manifests itself in that when you have 4G/LTE enabled on the phone you will often not be able to receive phone calls and the caller will just hear an engaged tone or the ringing tone. They wont even get the option to leave a voicemail. You wont get any notification at all of the missed call. The only fix that seems to work is to use 2G/3G only settings on any phone but whats the point of having a 4G phone and connection if it means you cant use your phone as intended?
Was seriously tempted then checked the virgin Mobile forum...
