Unable to change sign in email address

Tuning in

I need to change the email address I use to sign-in to My Virgin Media.  I have tried to do this online and I was supposed to receive a verification email to the new account.  Unfortunately, this didn't arrive for a long time - so long I had given up waiting.  I saw the email a couple of days later but when I click on the "create account" link I get an "Invite link expired" message.  If I go back into My Virgin Media and try to change my login email address again I get a "You've recently requested to change the email address you use to sign in to My Virgin Media. Please check your emails and verify this change before making further account changes" message.

So, I am completely stuck.  There is no way to verify with the original email, and no way to send a new one!  I've waited several days to see if it all resets itself, but it hasn't

Any Ideas how I can move forward from here?

Many thanks,

T

Hello Paul, hope you're doing fine
I have exactly the same problem: the link to change the log in email has expired and I get the "You've recently requested to change the email address you use to sign in to My Virgin Media. Please check your emails and verify this change before making further account changes" message when trying again.
I can't proceed and would like assistance.

Thanks !

I have the same problem, "You've recently requested to change the email address you use to sign in to My Virgin Media. Please check your emails and verify this change before making further account changes" Can this be fixed?

Exact same problem as the others.  Trying to change email address and the site tells me it has sent me a verification email that I didn't get, and each time I have tried since it just repeats that I was already sent a verification email.  It's been weeks now.

Any help appreciated.

 

Thanks for reaching out to us @krashd.

Check out the envelope in the top right hand corner for a private message from me, and I'll have a look into things on our side, to have this resolved for you.

Thanks,
