Yes my missus is on Virgin will be leaving at end of contract as they don’t support WiFi calling and more of an issue to us is you can’t divert a call to another number only to voicemail.

Virgin mobile is utter shite.
I could not get it to work anywhere in the EU.
They tried to blame the partner networks.
I cancelled, they threatened me with legal action,
I took them to the ombudsman and won.

with plus net now on a monthly rolling contract. Great to deal with on the phone. The most exotic accent you have to decode is geordie.

Everyday
Use the OFCOM map to check coverage ... https://checker.ofcom.org.uk/mobile-coverage
If you really want to get nerdy use this for detailed info on mobile masts ... https://www.cellmapper.net/

Had Smarty up until last week, it's good value (I was on their £6.50 plan) but when they were doing local mast upgrades I lost mobile network and there was no prior notice and they didn't know themselves what was happening at first. Also they run on three and no coverage where I sit in the Etihad. EE hopefully works (I'll know tomorrow) but having to pay a whacking £10 a month, rolling contract, for the privilege ;).

Agree the call center is shocking but i only deal with them online now. I have never had an issue with reception here or abroad.

I’d have said O2 until recently but they’re getting patchy. I have to reset my phone daily as the 4G keeps going.
