Virgin Mobile has announced its customer won’t have to pay any data charges to use Spotify through their phones.

A Virgin Media spokesman exclusively told Recombu at the company's product showcase, that  Virgin Mobile customers who buy Spotify from them will be able to listen to music over 3G on their mobile without paying data charges.

Earlier this year Virgin Media and Spotify announced a partnership to use the music streaming service across a range of platforms, including broadband, it’s digital TiVo set-top box and mobile phones.

This is a fantastic deal for Virgin Mobile customers. Spotify is incredibly data intensive, especially if you listen to it online, so it’s always best to sync your playlists offline over WiFi a feature available for Premium subscribers.

Spotify announced its mobile offering earlier this year and available across platforms: iOS, Android, Symbian and Windows Phone, with a free and Premium offering.

Virgin Mobile has yet to confirm prices for the Spotify subscription, but we’ll update you when we find out more.
