Virgin mobile users get tariff tweak treats

Loyalty bonus

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Virgin Media has expanded its choice of tariffs today, with a new range of pay monthly and SIM-only deals. As usual, it benefits to be an existing customer.

For £7.50 each month, Virgin Media patrons are offered a BlackBerry Pearl 3G with unlimited BlackBerry messaging and e-mail as well as 1GB of web data, 250 texts, 50 minutes talktime and unlimited calls to other Virgin mobiles. Newcomers will have to fork out about £12, though.

For Sim-only fans, there's a new £20 monthly tariff with 3,000 minutes, unlimited texts, 1GB web and unlimited calls to other Virgin numbers.

Next-up is the HTC Desire S, which is now available from free on a £23 tariff. This brings with it 250 minutes, unlimited texts, 1GB of data and unlimited calls to other Virgin mobiles. Continuing with the trend, new punters pay more at £36 per month.

Finally, the company is offering subscribers an HTC Wildfire from free on a £10 tariff. For that you get 50 minutes, 250 texts and 500MB of web data. Expect to pay double if you're signing up to Virgin for the first time, though.
