I have been sent a letter from Virgin Media about switching my landline to fibre network.
I tried, as instructed, phoning 150, but the letter and email don't tell me which of the keypad options I should choose. Choosing 'technical issues' and 'new setup' I ended up with VM operators, one of whom had no clue what I was talking about. Another claimed that she had made an appointment but could not give me the date or time, and the app shows that no appointment has been made. There's also no way, apparently, to let VM know we need a emergency back-up line either as part of the switching process.
Welcome to our community forums and thank you for your first post.
Sorry to hear you have been having issues trying to arrange a technician appointment and an emergency backup line. We can understand your concern and we want to best help. For this reason, I have sent you a private message. Please look out for the purple envelope and provide a response when you can.
I have left this a few days. I have not been contacted to arrange an appointment, as you said would happen. I checked the Virgin Media app and no appointment is logged there either. This process seems very badly organised. Is there anything you can do?

Last week I phoned 150 to arrange for a technician visit to switch the phone line to the fibre network. This was not easy as there were no options available to select the switching of the phone line.
The person that I spoke to asked several questions and agreed that a technician would be needed and that I would be contacted by a text message with the date and time of the appointment. A few days later I received the following text message which left me very frustrated :
"Hi, it's Virgin Media. You'll be switch to our new fibre home phone service on 14 April. Call us on 150 or 0345 454 1111 to arrange a technician visit."
I'm not sure of what to do next and the choices I can think of are:
