Virgin Drama ????



So let me tell you about my Virgin Media Drama today.
I spent 2 hours trying to sort out how to get my iphone .
To be able to work in the UK.
It is unlocked so no problem there.
However when i tried to sign up for “SERVICE”.
i was nicely helped by three sperate operators.
All of them did their best to help.
In fact I would say they did go out of their way to help.
So the following is no reflection on them, at all.
However on the management of said “VIRGIN MEDIA”.
Another matter completely.
After going through all the hoops and whatever to get this done.
Been told the best deal for me.
5000 minutes 5Gb, thousands of texts. X amount of data.
We come to the payment part.
I start to tell them my bank details so they can get their.
Twenty five pounds for 30 days.
When....
TROUBLE.
You see the “GLOBAL” company that is “VIRGIN”.
Doesn’t accept America/foreign issued debit/credit cards.
THey tell me that their system is not set up to accept any other then British cards, really!
So much for the global economic system
So after waiting all that time.
NOTHING......
The ironic part of this is tough.
I could go into a “Virgin” store. Here in the UK.
Where I could absolutely but a cell phone, Even a “Virgin”one.
But...
Wait for it....
I couldn’t buy the service with said American debit/credit card.
That I just purchased a bloody phone with...
Crazy right.
Let’s just say CD NOT HAPPY.
So I look online I find GiffGaff.
They offer unlimited data, unlimited calls, unlimited texts.
For 30 days, for twenty pounds.
CHEAPER and for much more.
The new SIM card delivery by tomorrow.
But guess what....
How would i be able to pay? You ask.
I simply charge it to my debit card.
the same American debit card that Virgin cannot take.
Not isn’t a joke...
IT’S FOR REAL.
Now I have always known that Richard Branson is a nasty piece of work.
Without telling secrets.
But he seems to be losing it as a businessman too.
Let’s guess who I will be recommending to every traveler I know.
Who wishes to use their “Foriegn” cellphone in the UK.
Yeah you got it.

I've been on giffgaff for years. Can't stand the Virgin brand. Crap telly and internet packages and crap trains. I prefer to travel with London Midland. Much better trains

Hi Christian. I've been with Giffgaff for five years. I pay £20 per month for unlimited calls, texts and Internet. Absolutely brilliant and no complaints. Its great here in the UK and also the amount of emails I send and receive too! A real bargain too!!

Letting my hubby know when we finally to get the UK to use Giff Gaff. That's cookoo to only want to take british money for service for your iphone.... weird... But happy that GiffGaff is the deal and they are happy to take our US currency.

I had Virgin Moblie when I was a teenager, and they cut off my service because I accidently charged up my grandfather's credit card by mistake and they were such a-holes about it.

sometimes if you can get a friend to sign up you get a discount with them so as soon as I find a friend I'm in there

Sprint, Boost Mobile, and Virgin Mobile are part of the same company. They can fukk themselves with a dirty dik.

I was with Boost for over 10 years. I left Boost because they refused to fix a simple technical issue. They kept telling me my phone was the problem even though I had 3 different brands and still could not receive calls and texts. All they had to do was reprovision me. Sprint says I owe money. I have NEVER owned a Sprint device. I have NEVER had Sprint service.

ha ha well i think mr branson has lost it a long time ago, i met him in a bar about 12 years ago and he was absolutley plastered and very lechorous! then i worked for one of his companies that spent millions setting it up only for it to go to the toilet! he absolutley has no hands on with running these businesses and just is a figure head who has great spin around him, maybe it will all catch up with him now

Told Ya Sadly.... KOBE BRYANT

A little OFF....
April 25, 2014
As you know I rarely do sports stuff. But, even though Kobe Bryant.  Seems to have been out of the limelight of late. I get the feeling there's something. 
I can't track him after 2019/20. Big, bad not good......... Also something to be exposed.

Sh'e crazzzzzzzy....
