My hearing is extremely poor so when i need to call VM i have difficulty getting across what i need. Usually i get my daughter to ring VM for me but she doesn't live at my address. Does anyone know in there is a way i can give permission (Preferably by email) for her to speak on my behalf when i contact VM or when VM want to contact me.
They do allow third party authority for telephone-C/S. If the caller knows the account-holder's name and details, and can quote the password, that gives them access to the vast majority of transactions.
Not account renewals or cancellations.

Sorry jappitts Sorry i thought i had replied to your post yesterday but i can't see it so i do not know what i did.
In answer to your answer every time my daughter contacts VM on my behalf even with all my details they ask to speak to me just so i can verbally give permission for her to talk on my behalf. As she does not live with me and because of the Covid (i am classed as venerable so have to stay sheltered she cannot come here to me) it is difficult to give my permission, it would be a lot easier to give VM a letter/email giving her permission to speak for me in future. Thanks for replying to my post, much appreciated
Hi jappitts She contacted them this time because, my original contract finished a while ago so i am on a rolling contract which has been going steadily up, so she contacted VM to query this, they were very good and have lowered my monthly bill.
Thank you for getting in touch with us here on the Community.
I am very sorry to hear yourself and your daughter have experienced issues when contacting the team.
When speaking to us, a third party can quote the characters from the password on the account and this will enable them to speak to us on your behalf.
Once the security measures have been passed, we should not need to speak to yourself so I am sorry if that has happened in the past. If this happens again, please ask your daughter to confirm that you have difficulty hearing on the phone which is why she is contacting us.
If you have any problems, please do reach out to me and I will be happy to assist.
