    Only "catch" is you need to spend $80 with virgin prepaid credit if you wish to have the phone unlocked.

    But then this "catch" is usual in one form or another for most prepaid phone deals.

    ta holdenmg.

    The same phone would cost you $59 to get direct from virgin but without the $30 voucher, so a saving of $30 - seeing as your going to need to get yourself some credit anyway once you have the phone.

    yea - I saw that ozpete. I thought it implied you had to bang $80 credit on it in one lump sum before release.... lemme go re-read the terms
  • admin2007/07/03 08:34:33
    doesnt say whether its cumulative or not - but I suspect it would be not.

    It does make me wonder though whether that restriction would apply to phones bought from merchants such as kmart - although again I think I'm being a little optimistic in my interpretation.
  • ozpete2007/07/03 08:41:09
    Well yes - devil in detail - in this case its not clear

    from their website...

    Pre-Paid phones are secured to our network & can be released after topping up with $80 on your new service

    Does that mean in one hit or over time. Guess you can argue its overtime as its not explicit. Then again after arguing with their supervisor over a credit card application that got knocked back on (Then getting approved by Citibank for $10K+) I wouldn't want to argue with a Virgin customer "service" rep again.

    :D - did he successfully drive you nuts ?

    "Service" can be bit of a dirty word can't it :D
    Some companies forget that if you don't have customers there is no company :confused:

    Wow this is the best cheap phone deal I have seen in a while.

    The actual model was a flop as it's had terrible reviews, but it would be perfect for a child or a backup phone or a travel phone.

    I might buy one to take travelling.... thanks for posting :D

    :D - good feedback lisss. If its crap we want to know about it. Thats a bit like a posting made the other week for a DVD - I thought it was a crap buy but as someone else pointed out there was a good other use for it.
