Virgin refreshes £8.50-a-month plan's phone line-up

Newish Nokias, old Samsungs

Seven Steps to Software Security

Punters on a tight budget now have a choice of five new free phones on Virgin Media's £8.50-a-month tariff.

They'll have to sign up for two years, but if they do they will be able to select either the Nokia 5230 Chrome, the Nokia X2 or the Samsung Monte.

Come November, they'll be able to choose the Nokia 6700 Slide too, though until then it remains on VM's tenner-a-month tariff.

Virgin also said the Samsung Tocco is available at the cheaper rate, but only while stocks last, which will be for "a limited time only".

With all of these handsets, customers can take advantage of Virgin’s mobile internet service for just 30p a day. Well, 30p for the first 25MB - "usage over this amount increases cost by £1.69 to a total of £1.99", Virgin admitted in its small print. ®
