Hi I'am currently due an upgrade and for the first time since becoming a customer (atleast 10 yes ago including PAYG )I am thinking of leaving this is due to the lack of any benefits for loyalty as I can't receive your TV and broadband package in my area it seems to be a fight to receive any sort of deal,the same tariff with a new handset was going to increase my monthly bill by 33%. As we have 3 virgin pay monthly contracts in our household this could end up costing us a considerable amount.
Am in the same boat , except I have XL tv 152mb broadband and unlimited phone, also 2 mobiles in my house , when I enquired about my early upgrade ( which virgin emailed me about ) I was fobbed off with basically downgrades ( ie less spec phones than my Z1). So from Nov 4th its goodbye virgin and hello carphone warehouse , and possibly hello sky as I am stubborn and feel that 8 yrs custom has amounted to jack s**t.
We would love to keep you on board as a customer. Did our team mention why it would be £55 to retrieve your pac code? It would more than likely be that you still have an outstanding amount to pay on your contract.
We'd be able to look at what handsets we could offer when your contract expires.
Let me know if you have any other queries.
Ackie316, We'd really like to keep you board if we could. Please give us a call on 789 or 0345 6000 789 and we'll do all we can I promise.
I do have another month to run , but by having my PAC code doesn't mean my contract has ended , it's only finished if I use the code on another providers hand set before my contract has finished. I asked for it to speed things up when I leave..
