I_ve been with virgin mobile for 5years without missing a payment and in good standings. Last may i decided to get my girlfriend on the same plan as me. With all the insurances. Within a week she dropped her phone at work and cracked the screen and the phone no longer...

Review from pissedconsumer.com

Had an appt today for 5-9 p.m for home internet installation, they were a no show. I left work early to be here for 5 , finally I called at 830 to find out if they were still coming. while I waited on hold the "dispatch department" left a voicemail saying sorry we cant make it today we will come Wednesday( 2 days later) between 5 and 9..What a joke.

Review from pissedconsumer.com

Should suspend ones existing contract if you fir example do a United States plan for a month. Should NOT have to pay for coverage you are not using. Also should be able to give a start date and end date ( example) going to be out of country for 3 months. Currently have to phone in AFTER plan expires. Can_t even call last day to sign up for next month, have to wait until expired. Then even worse you send a text saying plan has expired. Only gives a phone number for the head office where hours are Monday to Friday 9 to 5. That number given should be accessible after hours in the week and weekends. Not everyone has access or wants to sign up online.

Virgin Mobile, a division of Bell Canada, entered into the Home Phone wagon as other wireless carriers have done before. Fido, a Rogers division, had done and similarly, Koodo did too (a Telus division).

Seems Virgin Mobile is not activily promoting the Home Phone. We had to search for the page as there is no linkage directly from Virgin's website. With that said, let's review now Virgin Mobile Home Phone offers. At this time the Virgin Mobile Home Phone is available only in Alberta, British Columbia and in some regions of Quebec. There are two types of plans available with the Virgin Home Phone, a contract-less and 2-year contract. Let us now review these.

  • Contractless (Month-to-month)
    • First 12-months: $5 per month. Thereafter $20 per month (or whatever the regular price is at that time)
    • (One-time charge) Home Phone Hub: $135
    • One-time connection charge: $45
  • On a 2-Year Contract
    • First 12-month: $5 per month. 
    • Thereafter $20 per month (or whatever the regular price is at that time)
    • Home Phone Hub: $5.63 per month for 24-months (Total: $135.12)
    • One time connection charge: $35

The Home Hub is, in essence, an ATA adapter that allows connecting up to 2 regular Home Phone. The main difference is that Virgin Mobile Home Phone Hub uses a SIM card, similar to the one used on mobile phones. Shall be noted that once Virgin Mobile Home Phone is registered the SIM is locked to that particular Home Phone Hub, so it cannot be used anywhere else.

in terms of International Long Distance plans Virgin Mobile Home Phone offers 3 plans:

  1. International Long Distance Saver @ $5 per month
  2. Unlimited Talk to Hong Kong & China @ $15 per month
  3. 1000 Minutes to India @ $20 per month

Virgin Mobile Home Phone supports number portability, meaning you can keep your existing phone number. Virgin Home Phone may be a good alternative for some but you can get a lot more when comparing services with other providers. Also, the fact is only available in Alberta, British Columbia and in some regions of Quebec, this speaks of, ironically, limited mobility.

Because is Virgin Mobile, once you are a 'member' in theory you can cancel at any time. Though a warning; if opted for the two-year contract, you may cancel at any time but have to pay up the remaining of the Home Phone Hub balance.

We simply believe there are better Home Phone service providers out there, cheaper and offering more features.
