Alternatively, you can manually select Virgin Plus as your mobile network operator in your device’s network settings.

    Note: If you choose to select Virgin Plus as your mobile network operator manually, remember that you will need to switch back to the automatic network selection setting to ensure your service will work if you ever decide to roam in the US or internationally.
