    £70 is just excessive.

    Used to be unlimited text and data for £9.99... but Virgin said it wasn't economical

    Agreed but they allow me to early upgrade a year early to a new phone(which I was going to do for the iPhone 7) but I'm reconsidering as I don't want to be tied down to another 24 month contract. Thinking about just seeing out this contract and maybe getting it next year, but I'm still thinking about it, no decisions been made yet.

    That's true but when I got it the iPhone was worth £700 anyway, paying 140 ontop of that for pretty much the sim card(data, mins, text).

    I spent over 2 years paying about £45 a month & I was glad to stop that this year. I got decent phones & plenty of stuff out of it such as unlimited data & more mins/texts than I could ever use but I found the handset would last a year at most. I'd end up breaking the phone & then having to buy a new one so I was paying £540 a year plus the price of a replacement phone.
    Now I've gone to a Sim only contract which costs about £18 per month which still has unlimited data (I refuse to have anything less than this) but has less mins/texts (I barely use them). I also have a full choice over what phone I actually want; I just need to avoid damaging them as I'm fed up with having to buy a new one every year.

    Nothing because I don't have any friends worth texting/calling. I don't need these fancy new phones, I'm happy with a phone that cost me £65. Does it's job what more can you ask for?

    Virign, and Sim only plan. Last handset I bought was £324, and I got it this time last year (plan to keep it till it breaks)

    I have this price because I've been with them for about ten years now, back in the day when mobile data wasn't seen as very important. Unfortunately this offer isn't available anymore

    Recently they gave me the option to either keep the same £9.99 price for a 2GB cap, or £26 for a 10GB cap. Lots of arguments ensued, and now I have the plan I'm on now
