Galaxy s7 egde question

Hello

I recently bought a sim free s7 edge from someone on ebay who said they originally bought it from virgin media.

However when I try to find the phone on this website I cant find the sim free version only the pay monthly version.

They said it wasn't pay monthly or on  a contract.

My question is the s7 edge available to bought sim free from here or is this person selling me a contract pay monthly phone and lying about it?

Thanks

I think you've answered your own question.

If they bought it on Freestyle, the phone can be blocked if they decide to stop paying the bill.

Hope it all works out OK.

Look like the latter to me. Virgin do not sell phones on their own.

As Gorf has stated, if they default on payment to Virgin or report the phone stolen it will be locked out so it can't be used on any UK network

Hi matthewruddock,

even if it was from the "pay monthly" selection it can be bought up front.

http://store.virginmedia.com/virgin-media-mobile/freestyle-contracts.html

"Choose the phone you fancy from our pay monthly selection.

We'll show you how much you'll pay each month for your phone over 24 months or you can choose to pay the lot in full up front."

Hope everything remains OK for you.

Didn't see that!

Checked out some of the prices - not impressed
