We know that mobile phone love doesn’t last forever…

Unlike some providers we think you should be able to upgrade to a new phone early if life with your old model is getting dull. So now you can!

With Virgin Mobile, you have the freedom to upgrade before your phone contract finishes, so you’ll never be stuck in a loveless mobile commitment. 


That’s why we’ve split our Freestyle Contracts into two parts:
one for your phone and one for your minutes, texts and data

Because of this you can say ‘bye-bye’ to your old phone and give a cheeky ‘hello’ to a new one by simply paying off the remaining cost of your old phone’s plan.

Once you’ve paid off your phone in full, that’s it! You only have to pay for your monthly minutes, texts and data, so your bill will drop significantly.

And why do we call them Freestyle Contracts? Because they let you do things your way.

Freestyle Trade Up: Another handy way to upgrade

Out with the old, in with the new! One way to upgrade is to send us your old phone to help pay off the cost remaining on your previous 24 month Freestyle Contract.

It’s not just your phone you can upgrade early. You can also change your minutes, texts and data plan!

We give you the freedom to move up and down our minutes, texts and data plans once a month – even if you’re on a 24 month contract– so you’ll never have to worry about picking the right plan upfront.
