Same problem since Monday. Reset password to no effect. Now on hold for 1 hour !!!!!!!! on 150 for the third VM person to try to seek help from. I am despairing. Have spent 12 hours setting up a new non-VM email address and informing banks, contacts etc etc. For a comms company I just want clear info on what is obviously a widespread problem and a fix for it. And a helpline that responds in a decent time.
If someone on the forum team can help, that would be really helpful. 🙂
Thank you, Ash, for coming back to me. I did get it sorted in the end by a tech guy on the helpline. He reset the password - I thought I had done so myself rather than just change it but it hadn't worked. I did find it a frustrating process in getting information on what was happening and how to address the problem. Even the error message on webmail that told me to ring 150 and then option 2 took me to the mobile phone desk and a very nice lady explained that she was not the right person so forwarded me to someone else who explained that he was not the right person either and then forwarded me (via over an hour on hold) to the tech guy who sorted it. I had phoned 150 a couple of days earlier but got nowhere that time. So all right in the end but I feel it should have been easier.
