Virgin Mobile Contracts
Mobile contracts can be confusing. Thankfully, our help guides provide insight into our freestyle and classic contracts to help you manage your mobile payments.
We now offer two types of mobile contracts to provide you with additional flexibility to choose the type of contract that works best for you.
Freestyle is the best route to our higher end devices. With Freestyle you have two contracts covered by two Direct Debits. The first contract is an interest free loan agreement of either 24, 36 or 48 months, providing the flexibility to spread your payments over a longer period if you choose; [NC1] the second is a 30 day rolling contract covering your airtime (monthly minutes, texts and data).
However, we know that a loan agreement isn’t right for everyone, so our range of great value devices are available on Classic plans where you have a single 24 month contract and one simple monthly payment for your airtime.
Our Freestyle contracts are split into two parts. The first contract of 24, 36 or 48 months covers the loan for your device; the second 30 day rolling contract covers your airtime plan (monthly minutes, texts and data.)
- With a Freestyle contract, you have the freedom to upgrade to a new device early by paying off the remaining cost of your device loan. It’s perfect if you love always having the latest technology
- Once you’ve paid off your loan in full, that’s it! You only have to pay for your monthly tariff so, if you’re happy with your current device, your bill will drop significantly

At the end of your minimum period we will reduce the price of your plan by moving you onto the nearest equivalent pay monthly SIM only plan, taking into account any discounts or offers agreed with you when you signed up to this agreement and any price adjustment that has occurred during in that time.
The new plan will be a 30 day rolling contract (which either of us can end for any reason by giving at least 30 days' notice) and detailed on your next monthly bill, and you can contact the team with any questions. We will continue to bill you for these charges in the same way until you or we cancel the agreement as permitted under clause J.

* Any increase to the price of your plan during the lifetime of your contract will continue post the end of your contract. If you migrate to another plan during your contract, your monthly price after the end of your contract will reflect your new airtime plan.
