phoning a virgin phone in ireland

I have the full package of virgin media for a long time now. A relative who lives in the republic of Ireland , rings me and says it is a free call, as she is also on virgin media. Does anyone know if it is the same for anyone here with a virgin phone to ring another virgin  phone in Ireland for free. In all honesty, I have not got a clue where to ask this question. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you so much.

Re: phoning a virgin phone in ireland

Hi @Luckyjfl thanks for posting and welcome back to our community.

Can you advise me if the number that you're wishing to call is a UK based number or Ireland based number?  Are you looking to make the call from our landline service or from our mobile service?

Regards

Virgin Media Ireland has an internet VoIP telephone service that is fully integrated with their Broadband. They offer unmetered calls to Ireland Landlines & Mobiles, & the World Talk Unlimited package offers unmetered calls to 22 countries including the UK (unmetered means no call charge & no time limits to calls). So its not that Virgin Media Ireland are "targetting" Virgin Media UK customers for the inclusive calls, but all UK numbers. Virgin Media Ireland is a separate company to Virgin Media UK, & has a far more advanced network to the one inherited by Virgin Media in the UK.

VM BB TV Landline. Vonage 2nd line. Freeview/Freesat HD, ASDA/Tesco PAYG Mobile. Customer since 1993

Re: phoning a virgin phone in ireland

Just to add to what the fantastic @nodrogd has advised.  Our call rates could also depend on what you're calling (mobile or landline) where and the plan you have.

Regards

We actually use a Virgin Land line. As does my Sister in Ireland.
