I joined Virgin in August 2019 and at the time of signing the contract I opted for my 15+ years old landline number to be ported over as well, but after days passing my number did not get ported over and I started calling Virgin, went on online help chat but to date nothing has happened, no one has bothered to call and explain why not! I was advised by Virgin to keep my BT contract active till they manage to port my number but nothing happened! Now BT is chasing me for charges and arrears while VIRGIN has made a joke of my complaints! Worst company ever to have dealt with! Taking legal advice for stress, inconvenience, financial loss to say the least! OFCOM will be getting a detailed complaint including all the screen shots of the last 10 months nightmare customer service I've experienced!
I had requested the number porting at the time of signing my contract in August 2019, I have copy of contract to prove number porting was selected!
It did not happen so I called Virgin and they advised me to keep the BT contract active and extend it till virgin completes the number porting but still nothing happened! Now BT is chasing me for cost/charges/arrears occurred due to VIRGIN'S advise and still virgin failed to port my 15+ year old landline number! I have been requesting help online for months but everytime they take my details and that's it! Haven't seen such poor customer service and un-professionalism in my life!
So no my number not ported, obviously had to cancel BT line eventually as I was paying for TWO service providers!
Now I am taking legal advice for the stress, inconvenience and financial loss and burden I have been put through by VIRGIN'S incompetence!
I will be sharing my nightmare and VIRGIN'S attitude with OFCOM and all forums to show VIRGIN'S real face to the public!
