Free Virgin SIM CardWritten by Simon Barker on April 21, 2008 · Filed under Tech
When I saw that you could get a free Virgin SIM card for your existing mobile phone, I thought I’d may as well get one and see what Virgin Mobile is like as a ‘Pay As You Go’ (PAYG) mobile phone network, especially since my current Orange contract expires this week!
When you receive your free Virgin SIM card you will then be able to take advantage of the following PAYG tariff:
- Pick up more minutes and texts than you would with a contract
- Keep your phone and number
- No long-term contract – you aren’t tied-in to a lengthy contract
- Plus some neat extras like free web access to social network websites (or all websites if you top-up with £20)
I believe that the Virgin Mobile network uses the actual T-Mobile network infrastructure for its service, so you will probably need to bear that in mind when you decide whether you will be using your free Virgin SIM card long-term. Therefore if your T-Mobile signal coverage isn’t very good in your area, then it may not be the best option for you, but you can always get one of these free Virgin SIM cards to test it out.
Alternatively, you could actually get a free PAYG SIM card from each of the networks to test out which network has the best coverage and tariff for you, just take a look at my previous posts about other free SIM card offers.
