Hi, Im new to this so sorry if there is already a thread. After 4 calls to VM cust service today trying to get discount on my package before it ends I got through to ‘Romeo’ in s far off call centre who laughingly told me he could not take my discount off??? I said what are you talking about? I wd like some deal please! He did not understand or follow the conversation and just kept repeating what package I have. Is this now standard treatment?
why do you think you should get a "deal"? you've already had your "new customer deal" with expires when your minimum term expires. you then revert to the standard advertised price - you knew that when you signed up.
you can try and negiotiate better price by renewing your contract, but you won't get the same as a new customer. other options is to take your business elsewhere and get a new customer deal there.
spgray has given you the correct answer. to add to that - that is the way many businesses work. cheap prices for new customers to groom them in. the only way to keep on top of it is to change every provider every year.
You won't get a new customer price, but you can certainly re-negotiate a new deal.
You can call 150 from a Virgin landline, or 0345 454 1111, options 1,1 and 4 (Changes to your package) butbest to call at 8am to avoid call queues
You could also try the text messaging service. Just send a text with a description of regrade to 07533 051809. Your message will go into a queue and a representative will respond to you as soon as possible. It may take a few days.
If you aren't happy with the prices offered then contact Retentions (thinking of leaving us) instead.

you could cancel or close your account and get another person to sign up to VM and can then get new customer deals and you can get a few good deals but if you up grade you have to pay install even if its a free install to new customer witch i don't get.
So please explain how you can do it with all the other suppliers and i talk from experience whats so special about VM?
I Would say its the name on account that pays them they are not going to be bothered about the surname as i know several people whom live in the same house and have the same surname and not once have thy been refused on any deals!
