I would like to switch to Virgin Mobile from my current provider. I have been a Virgin customer for TV and Broadband for 15+ years. Tried to order iPhone 13 package on line, system detected that some time in the past i had a Virgin Mobile contact and requested entry of a long forgotten number. Contacted Help line answered all security but was not given access to that number. Tried to order by telephone then was told Equifax Credit check would only authorise a SIM only contract. Find that a bit odd when Virin have happily received several Thousands Pounds without problem by DD.
The only comment I can make as a long term forum user is that I have seen this on a number of occasions. I suspect if you go to Equfax you will find there probably has not been a search. Even if they have it is not them that make the decision but Virgin's underwriters.
You can pursue this but quite frankly if they don't want your business go elsewhere. They are banking on your loyalty... there is no loyalty in business.

Lady on Virgin Mobile help line confirmed that I had a mobile contract in the past but would not or could not pass the number to me to allow me to proceed with on line order. It seems like even if I had that number I wouldn't get much further if Equifax have the final descision.
