Contract renewal

Hello

My contract and loyalty bonus has ended and I noticed this month's bill has rocketed.

I was even charged a service charge to an 0844 despite my call package.

Given that we are being discouraged to call how can we discuss pricing options?

Thanks

Re: Contract renewal

Hi LC, I know when I signed up my contract was on a reduced rate for 12 months and then once it ended it went up £15/month. I then rang them up for a new package. 

When calling from a virgin media landline you have to be very aware of what numbers you call and when you use the phone. My landline allowed free calls up to 59 minutes 59 seconds but only at weekends. Luckily for me I have a virgin mobile contract so my calls to virgin customer services are included.

Re: Contract renewal

Hi,

thanks to all for getting back.

No, the 0844 call was to another company.

It just surprised me that I had an additional charge

Re: Contract renewal

0844 numbers arent included in all of our call plans, they only cover calls to 0845 and 0870 numbers not calls to premium rate 0844 lines.

 

 

Thanks
