didn’t think virgin speed was any different to optus or voda
Good luck trying to use all that data on Virgin.
I have two mates on Virgin who used the free 1 GB to its fullest and they had no problem over the three months it was available, one with a Magic and the other with an iPhone. I think I’ll port over on Monday.
p.s is your name Jesse?
yeh definitely ask i reckon they will allow the swap as long as you are paying a similar amount, probably 39 + 12
I just signed up for the X10 not even a month ago and see THIS come out – blargh!
I know the deal is for the X10 Mini, but does anyone think they may throw a similar deal my way for the X10 if I was to ask? Currently on the $25 rollover cap + $20/mo for $50 calls + 300mb data – I’d kill to jump onto the $39 cap if they started offering it on the X10.
Are we within our right to ask for such a thing?
fingers crossed they will get the legend after Voda’s 3 months is up
outright is about $500
Any information about an outright price or unlocking fee by any chance?
No official word on either. But I’d take Lucas’s word on it.
I don’t think Virgin locks their post-paid phones – Dad bought a Nokia 6220 Classic from Virgin, and used a Turkcell SIM when he went to Istanbul.
Yep, phones are unlocked and after 6 months of the contract you can get out by just paying the outstanding handset cost. Funny that the easy get-outs are the reason I stay with Virgin. Bring on Galaxy S in Aug!
Nice! Is Virgin the only carrier to offer unlocked post-paid phones?
No, Optus phones are unlocked too, and I’m pretty sure most other carriers provide post-paid phones unlocked as well.
