password for telephone support

Hi,

How do I change the password I'm asked when I phone 150 for support?  It seems to be different from the one I use when I log in to the virginmedia.com site, but I can't find where to change it for when I phone virginmedia with a problem.

I just had to make a support call and when asked for the usual 1st 3rd and 5th character the guy said I'd given him the wrong replies.  Of course it may just be that he didn't understand what I was saying.

 

Cheers,

Robert

Re: password for telephone support

Your MVM password has nothing to do with your account password.

Your account password has to be changed by customer services, as it only comes up on their systems.

Cable customer since 1993. Services: FH TV, Sky Sports/Cinema (2xV6), Talk Anytime Phone, 350M BB, Virgin PAYG Mobile

Wrong password will still put you through but you will go through an alternative validation process to confirm you are the account holder.
