What we think

Virgin Media mobile offers great value SIMs on a great mobile network. All SIMs come on 30-day rolling contracts, which is brilliant because you can switch your tariff up or down as and when you choose (as opposed to waiting until the end of a pre-determined period), or cancel it entirely without penalty. SIMs start from £6 per month, which comes with 600MB of data, all the way up to £25 per month, which comes with 20GB – so you should be able to find the perfect tariff for your needs.

Now is a great time to switch to Virgin Media Mobile too, as four of its most popular SIMs come with extra data for a limited time. The £6 SIM now comes with 600MB, the £9 SIM with 2GB, the £12 SIM comes with 6GB and the £15 SIM comes with 8GB. This is a great if you’re looking for a cheaper SIM, but find Virgin’s current data limits too restrictive. As we said, this is a limited time offer, so don’t sit on it for too long.

Virgin Media operates over EE’s network, which covers over 99% of the country. All SIMs come with unlimited texts and if you’re an existing Virgin Media customer you’ll receive unlimited calls to other Virgin Mobile phones, which is perfect if you’re planning on getting SIMs for the whole family. Being a SIM only deal, you will have to use your own mobile phone. Virgin Mobile offers standard, micro or nano SIMs, which means they’ll fit in almost all major handsets. If you're an Apple user, Virgin Mobile SIMs only work in certain iPhones (iPhone 4 or above running at least iOS7).

Virgin Mobile offers great value SIMs if you want a large amount of data

The main draw for Virgin Mobile is that existing Virgin Media customers get unlimited calls to other Virgin Mobile phones, which, as incentives go, is a little disappointing. However, Virgin Media Mobile is a great option if you need a decent amount of 4G data and you know a number of people with Virgin Media mobile plans, this could be a great option for you.

All Virgin Media Mobile SIMs come with 4G data

All Virgin Media SIMs have been upgraded to a 4G signal. Essentially, 4G is a faster signal that 3G, meaning web pages, apps and images will download faster when connected to 4G than 3G – it’s like upgrading from ADSL to fibre optic, but on your phone. What’s more Virgin Media Mobile uses EE’s 4G network, which offers the fastest and widest 4G coverage of all four mobile networks currently operating in the UK.

Data rollover and free messaging on WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger

Virgin Media Mobile SIMs come with data rollover, which means any unused data will be carried over from one month to the next. This is a great feature which means you may be able to choose a plan with less data than you currently have. Also, as Virgin allows you to change your plan up or down every month, you can monitor your usage and change your tariff as you see fit. Also, using WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger won’t count towards your data usage on any Virgin Media SIMs, so you’ll need even less data if you frequently use these apps.
