whilst this forum is monitored by Virgin staff it is largely a community forum to answer questions and give advice.
As your query is account specific I recommend that you give Virgin mobile customer services a call on 789 from a Virgin mobile or 0345 6000 789 from any other phone. They may be able to look into this for you.

Sorry to hear about the inconvenience you're experiencing lately, it's certainly not something we want.
As Alex has mentioned, it would be best to give our team a call so we can clear security and discuss this information with you. Although if you're having any trouble in doing that, let us know and we'll do our best to find out what we can. You can contact the team on the numbers provided in Alex's post
I rang yesterday and was told as I hadn't used my PAC code then I was given £10 credit which no one told me about and now I have to pay, I lost my temper with the stupid woman and when my husband took the phone she had hung up,I had problems in December which is why I cancelled my contract, no attempt was made to keep my custom so I found a better deal elsewhere! I have decided to leave it this month but I have cancelled my direct debit, I am unwell and under a lot of stress so I don't need this. I will be taking it further if anyone dares to reinstate my direct debit as my bank has warned me that they can! I have had no problems with customer service apart from mobile phone department.
If you were issued a PAC code then that would have to be used in 30 days. Once the number was moved to your new network your account with Virgin would have come to an end. If not, then they assume you have decided to stay.
Is your number with Virgin still active? If it is get another PAC code from Virgin and give it to your new supplier, most will allow you to use your code a few months into your new contract.
Your account with Virgin will close and your old number will be on your new phone.
If you simply cancel your DD then you are asking for trouble as any failed claims by Virgin will damage your credit score.
I take note of your comments but I paid the remainder of my contract and also £5 to cover the monthly contract, I didn't use the PAC code as we decided to use the new number provided by the new provider, I was told that it expired in 30 days not that my account would remain active, surely telling Virgin mobile over the phone that I was cancelling was enough. Thank you for your information re DD it appears that they don't understand the word CANCEL, hopefully after going through all the ansaphone rubbish I might actually be lucky to speak to someone in the UK.
