ive just renewed my contract with a new phone, will virgin unlock the old phone for free or do they have the cheek to charge after 2 year contract
They charge to unlock handsets - but most of their handsets are already unlocked, it's only the older ones that are locked to Virgin. Does the virgin brand show in the display during boot up?
Welcome to the forums
We do indeed unlock our phones. This will be a charge of £15.32.
Give us a call on 789 or 0345 6000 789 and we'll get on the case.
Let me know how you get on.

Let me know if you need anything at all
hi. I cant believe that I will be charged over 15 quid to unlock a phone that I had on contract for 24 months and stayed with virgin with a NEW CONTRACT I THINK THAT IS THE ULTIMATE SHAFT YOU MOVE
Thanks for getting back to me iansc1971,
I'm afraid we'd be unable to waive the unlock fee as that is what we pay the manufacturer for the unlock code. Sorry about that.
Let me know if you have any other queries.
