Re: My account abroad

hiya @Daveygranules welcome to the virginmedia community forum, would need to check a few basics:
enabled roaming on your virgin mobile?
enabled roaming on your virgin mobile account?
have you recently joined virgin mobile, if so you normally need to have a £50 deposit with virgin mobile to get roaming enabled..
are you in a EU country?
what make/model of phone do you have?
what happens when you try and access your account via wifi?

Re: My account abroad

No roaming has been activated. I know i cant roam without all the messing about beforehand.
I know roaming now costs virgin money so you make it well difficult for people to use it. I know most virgin customers who try to roam don't get the service anyway even after all the hoop jumping beforehand so i didn't bother.
(I am in Holland with my father and he did all the hoop jumping...does not work...he is very angry btw)
Why can i not access my account via wifi? Why does it have to be via a 3g or 4g connection?

Re: My account abroad

again what happens 'what happens when you try and access your account via wifi?' 'have you recently joined virgin mobile' , 'what make/model of phone do you have?' is roaming enabled on both your account and phone?, since can only offer advice based on what you post..

*edit* just so you know i'm not a member of virginmedia staff
