Sony Xperia M4 Aqua

My Sony Xperia keeps showing 'No Sim Card'. This can be resolved by a restart which cures it for several days then reduces to several hours. A factory reset will cure it for a few months.

It has been back for repair twice now but the conditions of return is that you do a factory reset to remove all your personal information. So yes, you've guessed it, Virgin can't find a fault and send it back. I have requested a replacement but I can't have one 'under the terms of my contract'.

A factory reset involves re-installing all my apps and re-entering wifi passwords etc.

Any ideas?

Re: Sony Xperia M4 Aqua

Sounds like a similar problem to my partner's M4 Aqua, which Virgin declared as unrepairable...

I made a post here yesterday trying to draw VM's attention to the matter which they have ignored for 13 days now, but the post (entitled "Sun-standard replacement"), but someone seems to have deleted that post.

I hope you have better luck than we do, perhaps we'll meet on the forums of BT or EE or whatever in the future, cos Virgin have some crawling to do to keep our custom...

Re: Sony Xperia M4 Aqua

You asked me to let you know how I got on with Technical Support. Well I didn't get through. I was transferred four times in Billing department, eventually had to answer a security question, then put on hold, then I was transferred back to where I started with your answering machine. I don't have time for this.

If you want to keep me as a customer ask the person I need to talk to to phone me.

Re: Sony Xperia M4 Aqua

Well that's a pity that you 'aren't able'.

I 'aren't able' to put up with indifferent customer service.

I shall not be renewing my mobile contract this October. Nor my Virgin landline. Nor my Virgin TV package. Nor my Virgin broadband internet.

There doesn't seem any reward for being a loyal customer.
