Totally unacceptable that when the phone service is out there is no way to contact Virgin media other than to phone them. How can I do this when I have no phone? The chat option is permanently "busy try later" as others have said. And there is no email facility. Engineer booked for many days later as is always the case. In the meantime what happens if there is an emergency and I need my phone?
But engineer not until next week! In the meantime I simply cannot be without a phone. There is no reception here for mobile otherwise it wouldn't be such a big issue. Error message on phone "Check phone line" , going by previous experience my line has been disconnected when the engineers were in the road yesterday fixing up new customers who take priority over long suffering existing customers. This is what I have been told. Disgraceful
Apologies again for the inconvenience caused, I've checked this and you've got the next available appointment at the moment. I'll keep an eye just in case something earlier becomes available and will be in touch if that's the case.
I received your private message, I don;t know what changed from earlier to now but there is no appointment between 8 - 4 today.
If you received a text message, then unfortunately that was sent in error. The 8-4 appointment is a placeholder for the engineering team to check things externally prior to the home appointment.
The appointment is still the same as when you initially booked it, I've also checked to see if there are any earlier appointments available and there isn't at the moment unfortunately. I'll keep my eye on the account should an earlier appointment become available too.
Craig thank you for your quick reply. But nothing alters the fact that Virgin are not in the slightest concerned that I have been cut off by one of your engineers yesterday in the road..(strange coincidence if that is not the reason)..And living alone with no phone could be life threatening in this case..I have an extremely ill relative as well..does that not warrant urgent action? I find this situation surreal in fact and will be reporting it to Ofcom and further. I can't believe I have been left in this situation by Virgin.
Some one from Virgin media should be contactable..the phone chat is just a farce, it clearly doesn't exist. No reception here for a mobile so what am I meant to do now in an emergency?
Thanks for the response, I can assure you that on behalf of Virgin, I care about the phone line not working as it should. The appointment you have is the soonest available and I promise you, if there was a sooner one, I'd book it right away.
I've checked the availability again this morning and it's still the same, I've also sent you information regarding raising a ticket for your dissatisfaction should you wish to escalate or review this matter moving forward.
