Not sure if this post belongs here but I couldn't really find a board that fits my pain point.
I can't be the only person who doesn't have time to wait on hold to get through to a call centre agent just to ask a simple general enquiry that I've been unable to find the answer to online. That said, I searched for some kind of Live Chat or Messenger service that would allow me to get in contact (which wasn't easy but that's a whole different issue). On my search, I came across this page.
Now, the page in question mentions both a Live Chat and Messenger service, advises that they are available Monday to Sunday from 8am until 10pm but does not give even a hint at how to start one of these conversations. Does anyone know how to get connected to Virgin Media's Live Chat or Messenger service?

Just used WhatsApp about the price rise.
It took me 8 days before a real person responded. In those 8 days i had to constantly confirm i still wanted help and repeatedly re-answer the security questions.
It ended up being a massive waste of my time on my phone. This is just poor service. It is not a one off due to the price rises as Virgin has always has the worse customer service in my experience. I've now left this company as i finally have other superfast fibre to the house options. I will never ever return.
I spent much of yesterday morning battling Live Chat to get a Pod. This could so easily be automated. The required screen shot of download speeds is meaningless - the actual location I needed the pod for had such a poor signal that there's no WiFi connection available at all, I just had to find somewhere where I could stay connected but not very well. If it's part of the promised package (or you're willing to pay) why the need to jump through hoops? If they're so busy, how about removing some of the workload - it could be done with a few lines of code.
