Username linked to old account

Good morning,

I recently re-joined VM and am having trouble registering a new account using my email address. I believe this is because it is still registered to my old account.

Please could you re-assign the email address to my new account.

Many thanks and kind regards

Rob

Hi Seldom_seen, thanks for your post.

 

Welcome back to VM! We may be able to help transfer the online account from your old account over to your new one - however we will need to complete a security check on both accounts first of all. I'll get in touch via PM so we can go through all of that and we'll take it from there.

Hi Cbrereton

Thanks for posting and welcome to the community.

This is a process called Move and Transfer where we transfer from the old account to the new account, takes 24 hours to do.

I'll send you a PM now.

Best,

Re: Username linked to old account

Now I am getting the error message

"Oops, we've ran into a problem.
Wait a minute and try again. If this doesn't work, please come back later. (Code: DEF01)

I wonder if I will ever be able to log into my virgin account ?

Re: Username linked to old account

Hi Cbrereton, 

Thanks for your post and for coming back to the Community. 

I'm sorry to hear you're having an issue with registering for My Virgin Media. We're aware that there are some issues affecting some customers but first we need to ensure we are covering the basics. 

  • Can you please try deleting the cache and cookies on your browser?
  • When trying to register through the app, do you get the same issues? 
  • Can you also provide me with the URL of the page that you're attempting to register on?

This will allow us to look in to things further for you. 

Thanks, 

Kath_F
