Hi @Rich34

 

Thanks for posting on our community forum!

 

Are you porting the business number to a residential account?

It was with Sky, but Virgin for some reason didnt port the number in time, now it needs to be re activated by Open Reach

Re: Transfer landline from sky to virgin

Thanks Rich34

Have you been in touch with Open Reach to activate this 

As we need an active to active line to process the port

Re: Transfer landline from sky to virgin

One of your team from Manchester has put in a request to Open Reach today.

Watch this space to see how long it takes them to respond and if it will be successful!!

Spent hours on the phone today to various members of Virgin staff only 2 out of 6 knew what they were doing.

3 Americans didnt have a clue one thought an 0208 number was a mobile??
