sounds familiar, i'm going through hell trying to get virgin to do something about my phone - i just pray you have a mobile to take up the slack mate cause if you're stuck like me with JUST a landline, virgin dont care
Hi Kath_F, I have finally gotten around to teting my handsets on another line belonging to someone else and it is in working order ringing nicely. I also have attached a cordless handset (in working oder and a different corded handset (brand new and tested as working on different line) to my line and and I still get a dial tone can make calls but there is no notification or ringing from either handset. This points to an issue of the power coming in or a fault in the exchange or street box. Certainly not the equipment attached to the line. Can you.please advise as am I not receiving the service I am paying for.
hi kath, i am do exactly what you request of me and responding to my private chat, but as this is an issue going way beyond TWO WEEKS now with no end in sight, i reserve the right to inquire with others as to what the hell is going on...does that sound reasonable to you?
