    Default Virgin Mobile Plans/Rates

    Im curious what people think after looking at these Mobile plans from Virgin.
    Ive never moved away from O2 (Now the dreaded Three!)

    Plenty of people here on different networks to vote on which plan they now think is best value (Its not a vote on who you currently use)
    (Ignore coverage issues when voting please as im more curious just about the views on price)

    Clarification
    Yes,I realise there are no pre pay sims mentioned
    So only the people with "civilian" phones aswell as one hidden away in a sock somewhere are of use to me here

    Super plan the one for 25 euro, someone told me about it too recently. The plan is not really "unlimited" but the allowance is so huge that it's worth it. If the coverage is good, im cancelling my broadband subscription and connect to my laptop to Internet via the huge net allowance offered by one of those plans. Plus cancelling one or two phones I have on contract with Vodafone, at 80 per phone and 90 for broadband and sky, that's quite a lot of savings !!!

    They are perfect for anybody not into making international calls because sadly neither plan offers value in this regard.
    Available for outcalls and very rarely for an ocassional weekend tour, watch my profile when I advertise.

    A bad good girl .. I wouldn't have it any other way

    An option to add 50 mins of international calls and 50 international texts for €5 a month
    Problem is...people who ring international need more than 50 mins...but ok still for a fiver

    How can you ignore coverage issues when voting? Regardless of the price without proper coverage it's pointless.

    30 day contracts is the way to go. I know you won't get a snazzy phone. But what phone lasts 24 months now??
    If you can afford to punt every now and again you can afford to buy a decent phone off contract. It will save you in the long run.
