If you're in the UK and are thinking of picking up a BlackBerry Q5 you may want to add Virgin Media into your list of possible choices. If you're an existing Virgin Media customer for TV, broadband or home phone you'll get all the tariffs at a much lower rate than non-customers.
Virgin currently have four standard tariffs and if you're happy signing up to a 24 month contract they offer reasonable value for money. In addition, they're currently offering the VIP tariff with half price line rental for the first six months.
The BlackBerry Q5 is available with no upfront cost with all four deals for existing customers:
Starter - £15 per month:
100 minutes, 250 SMS, 250mb data & unlimited calls to Virgin mobiles.
Essential - £18 per month:
1000 minutes, unlimited SMS, 500mb data & unlimited calls to Virgin Mobiles
Premiere - £23 per month:
Unlimited minutes, unlimited SMS, 2GB data
VIP - £27 per month (£13.50 for six months):
Unlimited calls, SMS and data. Unlimited calls to 0800, 0845, 0870 & 0808 numbers
Sure, the BlackBerry Q5 isn't the all singing and dancing BlackBerry 10 device, but it does the job. If you missed our review you can catch up here.
