Virgin Mobile offers unlimited calls to 08 numbers for £18


The VIP Plus SIM-only plan also includes unlimited calls, texts and data and is the first of its kind in the UK

Virgin Mobile has launched an £18 SIM-only contract offering inclusive calls to 08 numbers, the first of its kind in the UK.

‘VIP Plus’ builds on Virgin Mobile’s 30-day VIP SIM-only tariff which offers unlimited calls, texts and data for £15. For an extra £3 per month, customers can make unlimited calls to 0800, 0870, 0845 and 0808 numbers.

The plan is available to buy online, in store and over the phone from today (January 23).

Virgin Media director of mobile Jamie Heywood said its £15 VIP SIM is the company’s best selling tariff.

“Unlike our competitors who reserve the best SIM only deals for 12 month contracts, we believe customers should get top bang for their buck on a 30 day plan.

“We wanted to take the pain out of calling 08 numbers for our ever growing contingent of SIM customers,” Heywood said.
