Virgin SIM Only 3GB data,1500mins, Ultd txts - 30 day rolling contract - Carphone Warehouse £8pm

31
Found 8th Dec 2017Edited by:"vjr16"
UPDATE - People are being told that the SIM is only 1GB by Virgin - read comments

Not the best deal out there, especially considering some of us just got on the 40GB for £10/month SIM, BUT just wanted to share something I spotted this on the Carphone Warehouse site.

£8/month - 3 GB data, 1500 minutes, Unlimited Texts on a 30 day rolling contract.

Good to see they do the 1 month SIMs somewhere, even if they don't do it anymore on their own website.

Same price as their 1GB contract :/. not sure if its an error or not.

Purple sim ?


Yeah, I had to swap to another network and then back to virgin. when I called to transfer my number back they said they’re phasing out the red SIM cards as of 1st Dec with everyone but because I want to transfer ASAP, they’ll send me a purple one now. Should arrive tomorrow. I think they said it’s an update to the network.
Still haven’t ported my number yet.....so don’t know wha my it means for me

Ahh. They’ll probably say the same thing to you. Was told they couldn’t port over to the red sims anymore. So I’m waiting for the new one now
I can't vote on any SIM deals either way now, since I got the 5GB for £4 from VM. Everything else pales...

I hear what you're saying, it's not a fair comparison.
Hence my not voting either way TBH, especially as I'm not in the market for one now anyway. Usually the best SIM deals come around when I'm early/mid contract, so it's a welcome change to have got a bargain!

Not sure actually. Would have assumed so. That’s normal if the data is on 4G I think

My deal, yes. Unlimited texts & calls, 5gb of 4G for £4. Insane really.
I just called them and told them I wanted it, saying a college had been offered it, and they agreed.

Every time I’ve called for these Virgin sims I get told they don’t exist. Very frustrating. When did you order yours?

I just called now to get some sims for family members. Managed to get 2 GB, 2500 mins and unlimited texts for £5/month. Not as good as the above, but ideal considering the data isn't used consistently. Data rollover helps

Same, rang multiple times, same answer..hoping for some similiar new year deals.
300GB here
could you put this into a Mifi device?
I'm just off the phone to them (twice), passed between a couple of folk to be told alternately:

That they're not doing ANY 30 day rolling contracts
That people ordering from Carphone Warehouse won't receive them
Then offered me a 30 rolling contract sim 1500 min/4Gb £9 a month.

They point blank said the £4 deal doesn't exist.

They did mine as 30 day rolling sims. But only once they had confirmed I have broadband with them as well.

Not sure, but might be better off finding a cheaper data only SIM? Haven’t looked into those deals too much.
Do you recall which section you got put through? So I know who to speak to..

I was porting a number right before that, so I asked them to transfer me to the sales department. Sorry, i know that's probably not much help

Same here, took the £9 deal, but will be using the 14 day cooling off period as not keen on a 12 month contract - where they'll probably bump the price up mid contract.

How did you get this? You an existing virgin mobile or media customer? Thanks
Existing media customer trying for 3 days just got lucky today this deal is only available when they call you it's a special outbound team but not account specific because gave them number for a family member for a same deal not a virgin media customer but they end up getting the same deal
Just got my sim for this deal and only getting 1gb, called them was told no it’s 3gb, then called Virgin and told it’s only 1gb. just spent 1 and half hours on the phone in all and got nowhere, also cancelled a hold Virgin contract for this and told I can’t swap the numbers. Just a bit pxxsed off.

wow! sorry to hear that this has caused so much trouble. cant you show them a copy of the order confirmation etc.?
that's ridiculous that they would do that. should be carphone warehouses fault really.
btw, they always say you cant swap numbers internally, but you can swap temporarily to the cheapest PAYG sim and the back to virgin if that makes sense.
this is a scam just returned sim as it was only 1gb was told it would 3gb next month so i said ok i would only£4 this month because it was not what i was sold but they did not accept that and took sim back and cancelled contract

Sorry to hear that. Thanks for letting us know. I’ll expire the deal if that’s the case.
