Is Virgin Mobile a good network?

Virgin Mobile piggybacks on the EE network, which offers some of the UK's widest coverage and best data speeds. And better still, you get 5G for no extra cost.

It's also worth noting that Virgin Mobile's customer ratings are good and its roaming scheme is in line with the best around.

    12 month contract From Virgin Mobile

Does Virgin Mobile offer SIM plans for bad credit?

You can get a SIM plan from Virgin Mobile if you’ve got bad credit, but your options will probably be limited.

You're more likely to be accepted for a one-month or pay-as-you-go SIM rather than a 12-month contract or longer.

12-month Virgin Mobile SIMs

There are many options for 12-month SIM deals on Virgin Mobile, giving you great value for a year. You can find cheaper 30-day options too.

Virgin Mobile SIMs with unlimited data

There are some unlimited data SIM-only deals with Virgin Mobile. They used to be exclusively for Virgin TV or broadband customers but that’s no longer the case and you can find some respectively priced options.

As you might expect, unlimited data plans tend to be more expensive, so make sure you actually use the amount of data you think you do, or you might end up paying for a contract you don’t really need.

Should I get unlimited calls and texts?

All Virgin Mobile SIM-only deals come with unlimited calls and texts, so you can communicate with friends and family all day long without the worry of extra charges.

Which networks offer good SIM plan alternatives?

Frequently asked questions

Can I use my Virgin Mobile SIM abroad?

With Roam Like Home you can use your UK allowance of minutes, texts and data in the EU just as you would in the UK (subject to fair use limits).

If you’re travelling outside the EU you’ll need to check what charges apply to that specific country as they differ from place to place.

Can I get 5G enabled Virgin Mobile SIMs?

Yes, you can get on 5G with a Virgin Mobile SIM-only plan. Visit its website and use Virgin Mobile's coverage checker to see if 5G is available in your area.

Can I keep my mobile number if I switch to a Virgin Mobile SIM-only deal?

Yes, you can usually keep your current phone number when you switch to a new network. To do so, you’ll need to request your PAC (porting authorisation code) from your current provider.

You can do online or via text, or by phoning them. You will need to provide this to Virgin Mobile who will move your number over for you.

Do I need an unlocked phone to use a Virgin Mobile SIM?

Yes, if your phone is locked to another network, your Virgin Mobile SIM won’t work.

You can check whether your phone is locked by inserting a friend or family’s SIM card (from a different provider to yours) into your phone. If it works, then it’s unlocked, otherwise you will need to contact your current operator and ask them to unlock it for you.

Once it’s unlocked, your Virgin Mobile SIM will work in the phone.

Are Virgin Mobile SIM-only deals cheaper than phone contracts?

Yes, in most circumstances it’s cheaper to go SIM-only than to take out a handset contract. This is because you won't be paying any interest or extra costs on the phone itself.

Buying a phone outright and getting a SIM-only deal to put in it almost always works out cheaper in the long run.
