Does anyone have a way of getting someone to downgrade my package? the number is never answered (waited hours at times whilst at work), webchat never available and the text service just replies back how can they help over and over again with the chatbot. The website is a nightmare and just takes you round in circles, it surely cant be this difficult to downgrade.
I want to remove a trial of sky sports i had which expires soon and its impossible to do this, i dont understand why it cant just be done online when the customer service is this bad.
Unfortunately you need to contact VM directly as the Forum Team don't have access to enable them to change your package.
If you don't want to be tied up on the phone you could try the text messaging service. Just send a text with a description of regrade to 07533 051809. Your message will go into a queue and a representative will respond to you as soon as possible.It may take a few days.
You can also call 150 from a Virgin landline, or 0345 454 1111, options 1,1 and 4 (Changes to your package) butbest to call between 8am and 10am to avoid call queues, or late afternoon around tea time

thanks for coming back to me. I have sent several messages to the text service and every day, i get the same auto response asking what my query is. I am fed up logging it over and over again and going through security for it to do this next day. I have called the usual number and sit on hold for almost an hour and webchat doesnt work.
I totally get you cannot change the package on here, i am looking for someone to speak to as it seems Virgin go out their way to avoid anyone who dare wants to downgrade the service.
As a rule we are unable to assist or action any package changers here
