Re: Migration to O2

There is a clear push to get people on O2, my gig1 is extremely subsidised so they could send me an O2 sim. The subsidy is circa 40 month, they basically killed 70% of the price to send me an O2 sim.

I think O2's poor 4G hit them heavily and this is a means of filling up their customer count again, but looking at the comments on that ispr page, people arent happy with the poor 4G speeds.

Why would you need an O2 sim?

All Virgin Mobile SIMs already connect to the O2 radio network.

Luckily I had a use for it, I had a phone with a giffgaff sim which uses the O2 network anyway so its in that now, but even so paying 12 for a sim to get a 40+ discount on my broadband is a no brainer.

Using the Vodaphone network with the same SIM so just a matter of reconfig over the air.

See your point re giffgaff SIM.

Re: Migration to O2

I moved from Virgin to O2 just over a year ago but my wife and son are still on Virgin.
How will they know when they have moved? Will they recieve a text from O2? As I'm the Virgin Media account holder and we have Volt, will my wife and son also qualify for theO2 benefits?

Re: Migration to O2

Everyone will get full proper notification before the move. It'll be more than a text.

Once numbers are moved over to O2, yes they will qualify for Volt.

Re: Migration to O2

It says virgin mobile customers moved over to o2 signals at the end of last year? I thought virgin mobile had a contract with Vodafone still? So am I actually using o2 signal currently?

Yes, all SIMs now use the O2 signal.

This next migration is for the airtime plans and payment, so won't change your UK coverage.

Re: Migration to O2

as virgin are still selling virgin mobile sim plans...i was wondering after looking through the t&c's it maybe be worth taking out a virgin mobile sim only plan...the data will be doubled when you're switched over to o2 and you wont pay any more. 10 for 30gb data on a 30 day rolling contract doubled to 60gb once taken over to o2 sounds like a good deal to me.
