Customers can change their allowances each month and upgrade their smartphone at any point by paying outstanding balance on their handset credit agreement and taking out a new 24 month deal
Virgin Media has launched its new ‘Freestyle’ tariffs, which it claimed are the UK’s most flexible mobile contracts.
They allow customers to change their monthly airtime tariff, up or down each month, which the company said offers something no other mobile network does.
The new tariffs act separately from their handset purchase, which is financed through a 24 month credit agreement.
Customers can upgrade their smartphone whenever they want by paying the outstanding balance on their handset credit agreement and taking out a new 24 month deal.
Those who keep their device for more than 24 months will see their monthly payment drop to cover just their airtime tariff as their handset agreement will have been paid off.
Airtime tariffs cost from between £5 to £20 a month on every handset in the Freestyle Contract range. Handsets available include the Apple iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 5s and 5c, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Alpha, Sony Xperia Z2 and Z3, LG G3 and HTC One (M8).
With split contracts, Virgin’s unlimited tariff includes unlimited minutes, texts, data and calls to 0800, 0870, 0808 and 0845 numbers.
Virgin Media director of mobile Annie Brooks said: “Our new Freestyle contracts give people better value, more flexibility and greater control over the way they pay for their smartphone. We’re offering customers the facility to change their airtime to meet their changing needs.”
