Still waiting for my old Virgin number to be ported across ....
On 18 May 2020 we requested a new Virgin account online to be in my partner's name, closing down the account in my name. The new account was to be self-install with our number ported across so that we could continue to use the same Virgin phone number that we have had for the last 3 years. We were notified that the equipment would arrive on 18th June ready for the new-install date on 19th June. Nothing arrived on 18th June but then engineers arrived on 19th June - luckily we were in. However, nobody seemed to know anything about the number being ported across even though it was requested on the form a month before. The engineer said he would put it through as a request and it should take about a week.
Well, here we are on 03 July and still nothing. Trying to find out what is happening is like wrestling jelly!! Can anyone tell me how to get the answer please? Beginning to wish I'd never bothered.
Re: Still waiting for my old Virgin number to be ported across ....
Thanks for the reply, it is appreciated. I'm still a bit confused though as to why we were told we could have the number ported across yet it's not done. I did call our local Virgin rep (we still have his contact details from when we had the very first install 2 and a half years ago). He maintains that the number can be ported over, although it can take a little longer than 10 days. I will keep trying to get through to the Customer Service team. I guess the worst outcome is that we change our number and I make sure I let friends/family/banks/doctor/ etc etc know.
