Thanks for the prompt reply.unfortunately I don’t have a normal socket. I have been with virgin about 4 years and have never bothered with a home phone. I have had a new cable installed in the house,as the old was faulty. So have new phone and no means of connection. If you know what I need to do with my account,that would be helpful.
Can we ask when you were first installed with us did our engineer install a phone socket for you? If you had a phone line with your previous provider we normally place the socket next to your original master socket.
Your master socket should look like this here on this link.
Please can you let us know if you have a socket in your home that looks like the one we have sent you on the link. If not please come back to us so we can assist further.
Yes,but when new cable was installed last week,the old cable was disconnected and socket removed. As a said before,I never used a landline phone,but decided to make use of the service I am paying for. The redundant phone socket was never used.
It strange why the engineer would remove the master socket when you're not yet ready for the migrated phone line Delcwood.
We completely understand you would like a working landline as you are paying of this service. What I am going to so is send you a private message to take some details and get in contact with the area field manager.
We will find out why the technician removed the old cables and master socket, if you are not yet being migrated. We will need to get them to re-attend to get you back up and running.

Sorry,my mistake. He didn’t remove the socket. When I moved in the cable was routed under the floorboards to the room furthest from the street. Again I never used the phone socket. He replaced the cable from the box in the street,ran the cable round the skirting board to the other side of the room as I asked him too. The existing faulty cable was CUT OFF rendering the old socket obsolete. This is not the engineers fault. All I want now is to use a phone. You have been very helpful,but this is getting repetitive. It is virtually impossible to talk to anyone on the phone about this.
I have sent an email to the area field managers for you already, but I can just retract this. I did send you a private message to take some details as we would need to get an engineer rebooked for you.
