Re: Virgin Boxes being sold on ebay?

Why do Ebay allow them to be listed?

Re: Virgin Boxes being sold on ebay?

Hi JDLR007,

 

Thanks for posting. You do make an interesting point.

 

If the equipment isn't returned to us after the contract has ended then we charge for this. Also, you can't just connect our equipment and use it straight away. It needs to have an active paying code registered against the MAC address.

 

We don't ask for older equipment back but rather ask you to dispose of it safely. We advise everyone not to buy online as not only is this against our T&C's but it won't work and you'll be wasting your money.

 

Thanks

Re: Virgin Boxes being sold on ebay?

Hi JDLR007,

 

Thanks for coming back to us on this. 

 

The only boxes that will work are ones we've provided directly to you. 

 

Any boxes bought from Ebay or any other sites will not work. 

 

Thanks,
