Vigin Mobile in South Africa

I'm off to Sth Africa on holiday and virgin mobile operate there too. 

Could I buy a PAYG sim in SA that would work in my virgin mobile phone?

Re: Vigin Mobile in South Africa

You could, but it would only be an advantage for calling local numbers in SA. If you call the UK with it, you will be paying far more than you would on your UK tethered SIM.

Hi 100mphplus,

 

just check that your mobile phone is unlocked (open to all networks) before you go.
