I received a virgin mobile broadband package early July. it was a £5 card with very low data.
This was just as a tester to see if it would be useable in our new premises. It had no signal at all!
neither in my dongle or phone (which is unlocked). I had to get a card like everyone else in the premises from TalkMobile which works perfect. Now if the Virgin card worked I would have upped it to at least 15gb if available! but it didn't so I cancelled the card and binned it. I started getting bills for it and paid the month owing, then rang CS and told them that I had in fact cancelled and they agreed. Then I got more bills and rang again, they agreed and told me that the accounts people would ring me. They didn't. I have today got a letter telling me that they have set up a direct debit!!!?? **bleep**! so I rang again and they put me through to the accounts who agreed that I'd cancelled and was going to send me confirmation that I had via email.
The email I got was telling me that they were going to take money from the illegally set up DD and not to cancel it for three months! well they know what they can do!

Well you can probably see my point. being asked to jump through hoops and getting the run around before you let me leave is a waste of time and a huge wind up situation. I knew that if it didn't work then on cancellation I'd probably be forced to pay the extra month and was prepared for that, but not for it to run on without any reason. The direct debit was cancelled so let that be an end to it.
