Home phone not working and can't speak to a human at Virgin
Our VM landline has stopped working in the past few days - when we pick up the phone there is no dial tone. When the number is called the phone does not ring, and if I call out that does not work. The phone is plugged directly into a wall socket, and the Virgin telephone plug. The phone gives an error message; please check the line cord.
I've gone through the service status checks, seemingly there are no known landline issues in our area. I've also tried a different handset but it has the same issue. I have contacted Virgin by phone, email and their online bot - but they just keep sending me back to the help pages - which I have already been on three times and done everything suggested. Nothing works. I have now raised a complaint as I can't talk to a human being. Any tips please anyone? Thank you 🙂
