Free unlimited virgin mobile for 2 months

Virgin Mobile is currently offering everyone the chance to try out their Mobile Unlimited plan.

Existing Virgin Media Broadband or TV customers can try the plan for four months for free. If you’re not a Virgin Media Broadband or TV customer, you can try the Virgin Mobile Unlimited plan for two months free.

After the free period expires customers will play €25 per month for the plan, which includes unlimited 4G data, calls and texts. The plan operates on a 30-day contract, so customers are free to cancel at anytime.

Anyone considering this offer should have a very good read of this thread that started 4 years ago & still isn't fixed

I took them up on the deal before

Herself on three with data no problem, im beside her and no data, much the same a lot of the time

Then some weird way they do direct debt(a month in advance I think) meant I had to wait a month after I left to get my bill and then wait a month to chase up the refund

Data also the reason I wont go to GoMo, speeds are crap, not good when you want to backup pictures to the cloud

Changed over from a Vodafone and Eir account to the Virgin free 4 months offer.
Now not getting any confo texts from my bank, rang AIB to be told it's a known problem with VM and she said it's been going on since November 2019.
When I rang VM to complain, they were very sneaky and tried to say it was a
new problem.
When I mentioned AIB had told me it was going on since November, they changed tact and said it was a known problem and would be fixed asap!
Never saw this thread until after I had ported over and had talked to VM.

Will be changing back over asap asap.

Not a bargain compared to GoMo.

Virgin are a MVMO who use the three network who are brutal. Eir are better.

I know plenty of people using it and have no problems with the speed

I read was up to 10

Just checked on 3 I'm getting 26 indoors, so should be much more outside

That's easily over double the speed

Ah that’s a EU regulation for Networks. 3 advertise 10Mbs to

Actually speeds for GoMo and others are higher

Virgin mobile is fine, I have been with them on and off for years, taking up pretty much all and any of their free and very cheap deals. Reception here in Dublin (incl 3G and 4G) has been fine, but I can't vouch for reception in the middle of nowhere

Porting there and back has been painful at times though and their billing system is a nightmare. Currently still waiting on a hefty refund of their overcharges because they messed up big style

I've moved all my 4 sims (€9.99 all in each) to GoMo a few weeks ago, porting went fine, and I have no intention to move anywhere else again. Ever!

Some Gomo users are having the same problem of not getting these texts.

Switching for 4 months, saving €80 versus Vodafone X. Will switch again after 4 months.

Saving me €80.....definitely a bargain.
