Virgin Mobile 'Haggling'

Hi Folks

I had a call from VM today trying to sell me an 'upgrade' as they called it from my 30day rolling SIM contract to a 12month contract. I currently pay £7.50 for 800mins/3000 TXT's/1GB data there offer was for the same package but for £6 PM but on a 12 month contract. What are peoples experiences when negotiating with them, does any other supplier give more?


Currently 30 day deal is very good, if the amount is enough for usage the 12 month would be cheaper and better for you as other providers will not be able to match that unless an existing customer retention deal. Just a question how long have you been with VM?

It's been a good many years I remember originally being on something called 3 for £30 pounds which was £10 mobile £10 TV and £10 BB. I now only have BB with them £18.50 and a mobile.

I Pay 7£ myself for 1200 min/1GB/UnlimiText
AS I understand it my 7£ rolling arrangement has been this amount for the past two years and is indefinite.
I think what you need clarifying is what happens after your 12 months are up ?
Does the tariff go back up to one of their 12-15£ monthlies
