    Hi Guys (and Gals)

    I`m on a 12 month Virgin contract with 6 months remaining. I moved
    house a few monthes ago and can not get any reception at all in my
    area, i have rang Virgin to see if there is anything that i can do to
    get out of my contract, but they pretty much just said TUFF!

    Does anybody know if there is a way i can get out of it? Im paying 30
    per month and last month i did not make 1 call!!!

    Doesn`t seem right that i am paying for a service that they can not
    provide.

    Any help would be great please.

    Unless Virgin have breached their terms they are within their rights to
    hold you to the contract. It's not their fault you moved house. You will
    find a clause in the contract along the lines of "due to the nature of
    cellular radio networks we cannot gaurantee receiption in any given
    area".

    It was your choice to move house.

    You should be able to down tariff to a minimum tariff.

    Does anyone know how long it is now before you can down tariff on Virgin
    contract?

    It's a ball ache but write to them, address the letter to their customer
    relations department, explain the situation to them and that you
    understand it's not their fault you moved house, but to have no
    reception and have to take out another contract is just an expensve you
    can't afford at this time yadda yadda blah blah.

    Worked for me with O2.

    If the virgin mobile coverage checker Claims that you should be able to
    use their service at your new address you may have grounds to terminate
    the contract on the basis that the service was misrepresented.

    Coverage checker is here:

    http://www.virginmobile.com/vm/ukCov...k.howdoi.sm235

    If it does say that you ought to have coverage, keep proof (screen
    shots, witnesses etc.)

    However do write to them first and try to resolve the issue amicably.

    I moved house, and my Virgin mobile couldn't get a signal in most of the
    house (though it was fine in the street outside).

    I rang Virgin, and the helpful tech lady suggested switching it from
    autosearching for the Virgin network to manually selecting it.

    So, deeply sceptical, I tried it - and got 1-2 bars more, and now
    everything is fine.

    My son was also sceptical, but tried it on his Orange phone anyway,
    although that works fine throughout the house, He got an extra bar as
    well.

    I have no idea how or why this works, though. Weird.
