The music industry is where it all started for Virgin.  Not only does the Share the Beauty of Voice competition tap into these prestigious roots it also highlights the joy and impact voice offers in staying connected to our community, especially family and friends. There are things that you just can’t say with text and with the rise in text and social media platforms people have forgotten the power and effect created by engaging in a real conversation. Virgin Mobile’s Beauty of Voice campaign promotes the idea that with Virgin Mobile’s new V2V proposition, free on-net Virgin to Virgin calls, for all new contract, top-up and prepaid customers, you can once again talk as often as you’d like at no extra cost. Anyone signing a new contract in the promotional period can enjoy the benefits of free Virgin to Virgin calls for the duration of their contract. For more details visit
