    Can I have both Big Talk and Big Text & Data? 11th Jun 17 at 7:35 PM
    I'm with Virgin PAYG, on the Big Talk tariff.

    Is there any way I can pay double, and get both the Big Talk and the Big Text and Data tariffs, on one number?
    My job is Top Secret. Even I don't know what I'm doing.

    Amount I have so far denied the BBC - 1308

    Who are you to question why your god doesn't want me to believe in him?

    No, but you can change between them once a month

    I wonder if I could use two sims (one set for Big Talk, and one set for Big Text and Data), in a dual sim phone?

    You could, but you'd have two different numbers and be looking at a monthly spend of 20 to get the rewards. Just port your main number to a network with a tariff that better suits your needs.

    I would but, on thinking about it, I don't think it would matter, because the new sim would only be used for getting online.

    20 a month for those allowances is pretty pricy. I second the opinion of pmduk in changing to a network with a better plan for you, and the added bonus of only needing 1 sim. Unless of course there is a specific reason you have to stay with Virgin?

    You know virgin sim only deals start at 6 month.

    300 mins
    600MB data ish 4G
    UNL txt.
    no data incremented for whatsapp & facebook

    How does that compare?
