Landline number port gone wrong

Joining in

Returning customer and i have to say not much has changed and I’m not impressed with the switch back from sky

I’d planed everything for a smooth change and set a date of install nearly a whole month in advance

I requested my home phone number ported when ordered but on the day of install was told i didn’t and to contact sky

Sky were very professional as usual and told me the number was requested on the day i ordered so whats happened ?

Now my sky contract has finished and the line is dead nobody can phone me and you’ve not even told me what the number you’ve given me is

I have no usable phone number to give to anyone and the landline is the only number my elderly relatives use, i’ve tried to get them to use my mobile but well you know old people they can be very stubborn

What if they have a problem why is it taking so long and if I’ve lost the number I’ve used for the past 30 years I’ll be furious

I’ll tag on the another problem i have

I cant make an online account and when i try it gets to the verify your email part but it never arrives the email address is correct customer service tell me they have it but it never arrives

The last agent i spoke to tried to get my account working and sent an email to reset a password but it arrive too late and said the link had expired, they then made a password for me but that gets stuck at the same verify your email !!!!

They said theres an engineer visit in 7 days time but no email to confirm that …. 7 days !!! And whats the engineer going to do to get a phone number port !

Nobody seems to know whats going on this has been a horrible experience wish i never started it and i have no idea what else i can to do
