hi ive just received a bill from vm of £149 for oct/nov even though I gave 30 days notice to cancel 20th sept and all services were going to be turned off by 20th oct I paid my oct bill on the 28th and was told this would be my last bill and they would owe me £18 I phned vm today and was told that the account was not closed because sky had requested I keep my phone number and they hadn't cancelled this request so virgin couldn't close the account so the woman from vm closed the phone account and said they would send me an email for what I owe do I have to pay this even though I cancelled my package
The error in that case was neither on your side or VM's, but Sky's for putting that request through that you didn't want. However, if you've been using the services post the given disconnect date then it would be a bit of a tough case to get resolved. If you haven't been using the services post given disconnection date and VM won't waive the charge, I suppose you could pay and ask Sky to refund you for their error?

I stopped using the vm phone tv and broadband when sky was activated a week before vm tuned of my services sky says i should only be charged line rental at the most and if i get a bill from vm they will give me this back so thanks for your reply gonna ring vm nowto see what they say
