Switching to 4g

Hi

Got a text from Virgin 30th September saying that I would be getting switched to 4g for no extra cost from my refresh day in November.

 

well my refresh day is today and no sign of 4g.

 

has anyone else had this message and have you received the upgrade? Didn’t know whether I should have received a new sim or not. My phone is 4g compatible

 

thanks

Re: Switching to 4g

Comes up with the ‘Crikey we can’t find that page’. My wife got the same text too. Initially thought might be a fake text but was from the same number that sends all our ‘we’ve refreshed your allowances’ texts

Re: Switching to 4g

Hi

We rang virgin mobile and I’m now considering getting some legal advice.

 

The advisor I spoke to said they can upgrade us but would mean entering into a 12 month contract.

 

As shown in the text message received that made no reference to having to enter into a contract at all, just said we would be getting upgraded which is misleading information.

 

just a heads up for any future people raising this with you but feel this is misleading customers.

Re: Switching to 4g

I can't believe Virgin still have 3G only contracts at a time when 3G is being phased out. To my knowledge the only network that has

It costs them nothing to move you.
