Pay as you go SIM for my child that i can monitor

I have a mobile account and just got a new phone. I am gifting my old Galaxy S9 to my daughter but she will need a SIM card and I'd like to be able to monitor / control it because of her age.

 

Is the a Virgin pay-as-you-go SIM only option?

It is no option. VM do not offer PAYG anymore. Pay monthly only:

Re: Pay as you go SIM for my child that i can monitor

Good morning @MagichandsOlly 

 

Welcome to the forums and thank you for taking the time to post. 

 

We no longer offer PAYG sims to customers,  however as advised by @HowardML  we do have some really good pay monthly sim packages. 

 

Kind regards,

Zak_M

@MagichandsOlly 

I am sure that it is just an accident of drafting but the reply from VM staff gives me, at least,  the impression that I think VM monthly pay tariffs are "great" deals. I want to make it clear that I explicitly did not draft my reply to give any endorsement of that kind. I only pointed to the existence of such plans - no more and no less. 

VM staff are, of course, free to extol the benefits of their products as they wish. I do not work for VM and I guard fiercely my ability to offer independent advice free of commercial taint.

Sorry @HowardML, @MagichandsOlly 

 

It wasn't intended to come across in that way.  

 

Kind regards,

You can put a spending cap on pay monthly accounts
