The Simply 8p Tariff (This tariff is no longer available to new customers) - Call costs to virgin phones?

I am not sure exactly what the tariff is to phone other virgin phones?

 

I believe texts to other virgin mobiles is not free?

I believe calls to other virgin mobiles is free?

But Are calls to virgin landlines free - ie my own landline?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi omendata,

 

on the Simply 8p Tariff you are given 50 minutes per month free to other Virgin mobile phones.
(8p per minute after that).

Calls and texts to other UK mobiles and landlines are charged at 8p per minute / text.
(One minute minimum call charge applies).

Further information on charges can be found: HERE

Hi omendata,

 

exactly, your Virgin landline is a landline not a Virgin mobile.

Therefore charges to call it from your Simply 8p tariff Virgin mobile will be 8p per minute.
(One minute minimum call charge applies).

Yes but my home landline is a Virgin landline - not "other".

So are calls on my mobile 8p tariff to my home landline free (OR included in the free 50 mins) or are they charged?

 I have already looked at the page you link to but its still not clear - it says "other" landlines - Virgin should make it clearer and have either.

Calls to UK landlines1 (including virgin landlines) cost 8p per minute!

Or

Call to virgin landlines are free but other landlines cost 8p per min!

Thanks dude thats what i thought - just good to have it confirmed.

There is a workaround i believe - Just a pity my Android wont support the Talk Anywhere app i believe then i could use it to phone my landline for free?

I must be behind the times or going mad - I was sure Virgin used to have an app that allowed you to use your mobile like your home phone but cant seem to find it on the Google Play store - Must be thinking of Talktalk or Virgin must have retired it!
