    Hi all,

    Just had the letter from Virgin regarding the increase to the minimum
    call charge to 15p, so I am looking at my options.

    I do have access to an old unlocked 3g handset, so I've been looking
    at 3 PAYG Flat 12 and I may even consider a 3 branded PAYG Nokia 6120
    for it's data capabilities.

    This would be a backup for my main o2 contract, the most important
    feature to me is free voicemail, followed by cheap data via handset
    and connecting other devices via bluetooth and cable.

    Do 3 have the option to change voicemail notification or do they still
    only send a text.

    I've looked at their website and pricelist pdf and I cannot find the
    minimum call charge, however I guess it is 12p. Also is it the
    standard 180 days without using a chargeable service before
    suspension/disconnection? I take it topups no longer expire either?

    CS still just as bad I remember?

    TIA,

    Sam.

    Thanks, so if I tell them my PAC and that I want to move my number to
    them are they more than likely to know what I am talking about or
    should I be hoping that they now have the ability to port in online?

    Also I take it the 10 topup credit for porting in is automatically
    applied?

    Sam.

    PAC in and out is one thing they appear to be able to do - I've done
    both this year without a problem.

    I've no experience with PAYG, but the 30 credit for introducing
    another pay monthly customer was applied without chasing, but it
    took 2 or 3 months to appear.

    Was absolutely no problem when I did it. CS assistant was in India but knew
    what they were doing.

    Yes, I think. It'd be worth asking the CSA just to check, though.
