Give it a few more months and you might (should?) be able to negotiate more favourable allowances. I do not and have not had any VM services and my mobile retention deal is £7 / month SIMO for unlimited calls/txt/data inc calls to 08xx prefixed numbers.

Not available to existing customers, the usual crap where they say F you to anyone that is already giving them money.

I'm with Virgin and not available to me.

are you sure? i just got off the phone with them and is available to existing customers

just for new connection.

It's 100% for existing customers and if I remember correctly you need a certain internet bundle (which I believe is the 50mb) to qualify for this deal, from what I got told. Also it some cases by upgrading to 50mb your bill can go down, but when your on the phone you can ask them how upgrading will impact your bill.

I'm on £10.00 a month unlimited data, texts and 2500mins was a retention deal and its one month rolling

just been on live chat with them and all you need is the stand alone broadband package! i took a snapshot of the conversation but don't know how to upload it here?

i'm on their original unlimited everything tariff and get that for £10 a month.

they're pretty hardcore about discounting them now unfortunately, although some people have reported that third party sales offers have resulted in the price being brought down further.

Hi, does anybody know if they offer 4G at all?

Mighty Mugger is correct. You need to have one of their 'larger' bundles to qualify. I have 3 services from them (TV, internet and landline), but all are basic, so I'm not entitled to this deal, but I'm still getting 600 mins, 3000 texts and 1GB of data for £7.70 so not to bad.
I have tried for this £8 deal and will try again, as someone in customer loyalty may eventually say yes!!

Stand alone Virgin Mobile were great. Retention deals were good. Sadly Big Bad Virgin Media have taken over and things will never be the same again. They will probably start increasing prices to older Virgin Mobile customers unless they take out Virgin Media TV and Broadband. Just like the marketing sales force do at E E.

I've just got this deal from them and I only have the phone and 30meg broadband with them and can call other mobile network too

I'm not with Virgin Media but just Virgin Mobile and get the Essential Sim-Only 17 tariff for £6 per month, i.e. £11 discount per month.

The tariff entitles me to:
Unlimited Data
Unlimited SMS
1200 min Calls

So not bad for £6 per month considering it's a 30 day rolling contract.

Does anyone know if the minutes include calls to 0800, 0845, 0870 and numbers beginning with 03? Many thanks.

I got unlimited calls and texts and 250mb for £5 a month,There internet is totally useless,So i use a dual sim phone with a 3 sim in for the internet.

I was a Virgin group client 3 times (Virgin Media, Virgin Insurance, Virgin Mobile). Every time it was a total disaster. It ended with appropriate ombudsman twice (Virgin Insurance, Virgin Mobile). Third time it was just cancelled contract with a great relief.
Virgin Mobile was ultimate disgrace - my sim NEVER worked properly, it took 3 months to take my number away and 12 months hassle with ombudsman. They even tried to use debt collector (their debt collector is using Comic Sans font in official letters, go figure...) for non-existing debt.

If you like living on the edge, new inspiring challenges every day, fighting for your money instead boring life - Virgin is for you!

If you thinking of signing up to home services I got a great deal just phoned them direct on 01772563345
Weekend just gone £100 in vouchers don't know if deals gone

You must have the virgin big bundle services at home to qualify. Without them it will be removed automatically (I see this day in and day out)

VIRGIN MOBILE ARE REALLY **** GUYS, DO NOT TAKE OUT A CONTRACT WITH THEM!!! I WAS WITH THEM FOR YEARS AND YEARS. REALLY BAD SIGNAL, REALLY SLOW INTERENT. NOT WORTH IT. JUST MANAGED TO GET AWAY AND NOW IM WITH TESCOS WHO USE 02. BEST SIGNAL AND PRICE AND SERVICE!!

I agree Virgin Mobile customer services are a nightmare to deal with.

Have to disagree with that. I've been with Virgin Mobile for a good few years now and have always found the 3g connection to be very fast and reliable.
