All the stuff you like, like your Virgin Mobile number and your billing date will stay the same. If you’re on a Freestyle Contract you can upgrade early with Freestyle Trade Up.
And you can get your new phone as soon as tomorrow but only start paying for it with your next bill. Simply sign up to a new 24 month contract and use the value left in your old phone to cover your existing one. You’ll need to pass a credit check like all our Pay Monthly phone contract customers but you could get a phone and plan from just £8.50 a month. All our phone plans come with unlimited texts as standard.
