Pay As You Go Sim Card

Can anyone tell me if Virgin Mobile do a Pay as you go sim only which does not require a set monthly payment? My husband has a bog standard Nokia mobile which is only used very rarely to text my mobile or for me to text him at home so I want to be able to top up only as and when required. Until recently he had a E E pay as you go sim but because it has not been used in the past 6 months the number and account have been discontinued with the loss of any credit and as I have a Virgin Mobile pay monthly account it would be useful for his mobile to have a Virgin Mobile also. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi gerryatric10,

 

it sounds like you require a Virgin Mobile Pay As You Go SIM.

For a light user though, Virgin's tariff is not really suitable and quite expensive compared to some other providers.

I.E. O2's Classic (5p per minute / text) or Three Mobiles 3-2-1 tariff (3/4G phone's only though).

Also worth noting, that most PAYG Sims will will end up like the EE one did if you don't make a chargeable call or text at least every 3 months.

Re: Pay As You Go Sim Card

Thanks for that, having looked at a couple of mobile networks I now realize the need to use to use the mobile a little more often but what I don't want is to have to pay a monthly set fee as it just isn't going to be cost effective for the use it will get. My husband and I are both OAP's and I have only got the £5 per month Sim only deal and use a minuscule amount of my allowance but it is reassuring to know I have that when I need to get in touch with family etc. in an emergency, my husband uses - or rather hasn't used of late - my old bog standard Nokia but says he will use it if we can find a suitable Sim.
