I recently took out the “Talk More Anytime package” for £8.00 per month after being told by a virgin rep that calls to Mobile numbers were all inclusive anytime.
I’ve just received my bill and I’ve been charged an additional £9.29 for calls of which £8.03 was for 2 calls to a mobile number??? I called up customer services who said that calls made to GiffGaff mobiles or Lyca Mobile are NOT included and just kept going round in circles saying that all this information is stated on the website and only UK mobiles are included etc.
I called what was a UK mobile number (11 digits – starting 074) to someone who lives in and was in the UK at the time of the call. How am I or anyone else for that matter supposed to know that the person I’m going to be calling may be on the Giffgaff network or the Lyca Mobile network?
I also have a Virgin Mobile Sim with inclusive minutes, yet on here I can call use my inclusive minutes to make calls to anyone on Giffgaff or Lyca. So why does the same not apply on the inclusive landline package?
Virgin Media need to be more clear on this as there is obviously an issue here. As currently there is no way for anyone to know (who dial what looks like a standard UK 11 digit mobile) if the person they are calling will result in a charge on their so called ‘inclusive’ package!!!
