sent phone in for repair ,now told casing damaged (perfect when it left me but virgin wont believe me ),and i would have to pay £66.00 to get it fixed ,why should i be expected to pay for some thing i did not damage,sad to say been with virgin for 25yrs (since cable tel days)but glad i have 30day rolling contract on all virgin services tv,broadband,2 mobile phones so going to end them all i dont appreciate people questioning my integrity especially as i have acted in good faith,so word to all take photos of phone if sending it in for repair
meant to say this is the second faulty phone last time they sent me an obvious refurbished phone, just glad to have phone back,so i did not worry about it till faults started(stupid me)have asked for proof of damage still waiting,proof packing was not damaged stupid Virgin they did not take photo of packaging,maby this is a ploy, i therefore am expected to take their word, but they wont take mine,have decided to contact national newspaper,maybe they will listen to them,as i said i don't take kindly to people calling my integrity in to question
I sent my phone to investigate a fault not reading the Sim card, I called them for an update to be advised they were not repairing due to a cracked screen. It did not have a cracked screen and my only assumption is VM repair centre broke the screen to avoid repairing?
I am taking this further via Litigation/small claims.
I was wondering if you would be wiling to provide a witness statement in due course?
I am a long term customer... over 15 years, that i remember, have phone, tv, broadband and two mobiles.
Today I have chased my week overdue returned phone, sent away for a faulty display.
After waiting for 15 minutes while they found out what was taking it so long to be returned to me, I was finally informed that I had to pay £78 for a faulty sim reader... I was very confused, as previously mentioned that it was in for a faulty display.
I refused to pay it and asked to speak to someone else but they said that I would have to wait for a call back.
Anyway, now they are sending it back to me unrepaired and i have to wait up to ten days for someone to call me?
Is this some sort of scam?
Its annoying... the phone was not damaged and is only about 6 months old. The display started looking washed out and so it was returned.
Now i read this and it seems like it is some sort of fraud, either that, they are just completely incompetent.
