Windows Phone on Virgin

I can't access any Virgin Apps on my Nokia 735 Lumia Windows phone, particularly 'Virgin Media Wifi Buddy'. Is there a work around?

I honestly don't think there is.

Re: Windows Phone on Virgin

You will find many networks do not supply apps for Windows phones. 

Third party developers are used for these applications and they are pulling out of Windows at a rate of knots if the trade press is to be believed.

Re: Windows Phone on Virgin

AFAIK Wifi Buddy is Android and Apple only

Re: Windows Phone on Virgin

Thank you. I was aware of this. It seems that Virgin really do not support Windows, but I was particularly hoping that there was some other way to access Wifi Buddy.

Re: Windows Phone on Virgin

Hi Likeasalmon,


Thanks for posting Smiley Happy

 

Windows Phone is always in our thinking and we may choose to expand to this in the future.

 

If you have any further questions.

Let me know if you need anything at all.

Thanks,

Mat

Re: Windows Phone on Virgin

Why does Virgin provide Windows based phones when there are so many gaps in the service. I wish I had opted for an iPhone when I renewed my contract, rather than a very poor Windows phone. Feel really badly let down my Virgin.

Re: Windows Phone on Virgin

Hi Likeasalmon,

 

I'm sorry to hear that you don't like the handset. This is something we don't want to hear.

 

What is it about the phone that you don't like?


Let me know as soon as you can. We always appreciate feedback.


Thanks,

Mat

Re: Windows Phone on Virgin

It's not the phone I don't like (it's a good phone), it's the fact that it is on Windows, which is not supported by Virgin, in terms of Apps etc. At the time I signed up to this with Virgin it should have been made clear what the limitations were going to be. I do feel that If Virgin are selling a Windows based phone they should provide the Apps to support it. I'm now stuck with a phone that has huge limitations, due to Virgin not supporting Windows.
