VOLT o2 and Virgin Media

Hi all,

Still getting conflicting info about VOLT. I just think its ridiculous that I was on o2 and virgin media, i then moved from o2 to virgin mobile and i'm told i don't qualify for VOLT because I'm not on o2 mobile!

Any VM experts here? Surely there must be a ton of people complaining about it!

I can now use o2 rewards again which is ironic that o2 class me on virgin mobile as warranting the ability to use o2 rewards but not the VOLT haha

Re: VOLT o2 and Virgin Media

I am on Virgin Mobile but coming to the end of my deal so will need to re-negotiate and am hoping I can switch to Volt. I have no issue taking my number to o2 if that is what I need to do.

Interested on more info on this subject too.

Re: VOLT o2 and Virgin Media

I was on VMobile with the free SIM as part of Ultimate package. When I renewed, I had to move to O2 a couple of months ago. O2 raise their prices every March which didn't happen with my VM SIM.

I think O2 are quite expensive:

O2 50Gb iPhone 13 £46.99 a month + £30 up front
VM 100Gb iPhone 13 - £41.50 a month - zero up front.
Both 5G

I know it's only £5.50 a month difference but...

(Obvs (double data SIM if you have VM broadband = 100Gb and also next BB tier if you have an O2 sim and Virginmedia BB)

Re: VOLT o2 and Virgin Media

Re: VOLT o2 and Virgin Media

I moved to Sky a while ago based on the fact VM were moving to the Vodaphone network.
As I understand it, Sky use the O2 network anyway, so I basically ended up in the same place.

My Sky costs me £6 month and my unused data builds up for 3 years.

I get 5GB a month (doubled to 10GB with VOLT) for £11 - just changed it last week (previously had 20GB (doubled to 40GB), but wasn’t using it).

oh right. I went through the VM options and it sent me to the o2 site and the options were quite poor. I may still give it a go

---------- Post added at 11:48 ---------- Previous post was at 11:41 ----------

Just called and the guy I spoke too literally told me to call back closer the time of my discount drop off and he said they should be able to renew my deal at the same cost which means I should still get my free sim. Of course that remains to be seen but if that is the case I will forget the Volt idea

Have a look on the Uswitch site, O2 sim only deals start from £6 at the moment.

I saw those a while back and was tempted. That deal can't be bought direct from VMO2 though, so does it qualify for Volt benefits? Or can any O2 sim deal be applied for double data?

Sounds good pity about fixed price rises! Tesco were offering 10gb for 2years at £10 ,and that's 02 as well but no perks* * get O2 ones but not volt ones . Or does someone know different

Re: VOLT o2 and Virgin Media

I'm in a funny situation.


My dad is the VM account holder, and I have an O2 pay monthly.


I wonder if they would accept that?

It's changed to address matching for eligibility. Doesn't need to be the same name too now.

Quote:
If your broadband and mobile accounts are in different names, or the names don’t match (eg Chris and Christopher), you’ll need to activate your Volt benefits in My O2, and they’ll be applied within 14 days.

You'll also need make sure the address on your O2 account matches the address on the Virgin Media broadband account, whether it’s in your name or someone else in your household. If they don’t quite match, you can edit your address in My O2.
