I transferred my VM phone number to another provider - When is my VM account closing?

Earlier this month, I decided to PAC my Virgin Mobile number (07305 442391) to Id Mobile instead, with a view to closing my Virgin Mobile account but keeping the number. When will my Virgin Mobile account be closed, and what more will I have to pay, if anything?

I've seen that page already, but it doesn't tell me WHEN these events will happen. How long will I have to wait?

Your account should close the day the number transferrs. However, if there are any outstanding payments they may take till your next refresh to appear. 

Rule of thumb. One month after the transfer

As of now, the account for Virgin Mobile is still open, although there are no more payments and the balance is for "information only". How do I close it?

Mine stayed available open for a while if I remember. If the number has transferred then they can charge you for anything

It should close automatically after 90 days of the SIM card not being used.

 

Thanks, Emily.
