I recently reversed my decision to leave Virgin and join BT, mainly because BT gave me such a run around and had still not activated their services 2 months after I made my order.
When I phoned Virgin to reverse my decision, the Internet came back on the same day. Unfortunately I am still waiting for the phone to be reconnected- BT have assured me that they no longer have any hold on the line, so I don't understand why Virgin have still not reconnected me.
Can someone look into this please? My account number is removed, and I wish to keep the same number that I had before.

I'm really sorry to learn about the problem you're experiencing with your phone line, I've checked your account and we'd need to get this set up again from our end for you as your line isn't showing as active at the moment.
To get this done, give our team a call on 150 from any (other) Virgin line or 0345 454 1111 from any other so we can clear security with you and get right to it.
Apologies again for the inconvenience caused, I'd love to hear how it goes.
Thanks for your reply, however that is at odds with what I have previously been told when I have rung the number you quoted. I was told that all that needed to be done was for my line to be reactivated, and that a form had been filled in (by the person who I spoke to) and it was all in progress - that was over a week ago.
Looking at your account, I'm not seeing any action being taken to get this connected automatically. I can see notes from the conversation you had with us on the 5th January but that stated that we needed some information confirmed before we could go ahead, which we'd need to clear security for. A request was sent for a temporary number on the same day but I'm not seeing it as having gone through unfortunately.
I'd love to be able to help but as we'd need to clear security before requesting this, I'd need to recommend giving the team a call. Sorry again about that as I'd really like to be able to get this sorted for you.
OK - I will call today, but I was wondering if you would be able to put some additional notes on the account so that whoever I end up speaking to knows exactly what the situation is and what it is that they need to do?
OK, I've just spoken to them and had pretty much the same conversation that I had with the person I spoke to on the 5th - I was told that the number needed to be requested back from BT (who I had previously intended to join, but changed my mind) and that once it was back I would be given a date for my line to be activated.
She said that she could see that this had been requested before, but that for some reason it did not happen.
I would be grateful if you could check my account again and see whether the lady I spoke to today has taken the correct action.
