Ever since yesterday morning when my SIM-only contract was updated from 3G to 4G, the My Account App on my Android phone (when asked to show my Balance) shows "Connection error" and "We're having difficulty reaching our servers". However, if I use the Virgin Mobile website login then I can see my Balance as normal. Is this a known problem?
Apologies for the difficulties you're experiencing with the My Account app. There is currently a known issue around this and our team are on the case to get this sorted out. As soon as there's any update we'll be sure to let you know.
This is indeed another symptom of this issue, I know it can be very annoying. A lot of my colleagues have been adding it into a block list to prevent them being bugged by this text.
Most of the guys here have downloaded an App from there market places on their devices which can block them. The one I find is the best is one called dead 2 me this blocks calls and texts, but please bear in mind these are 3rd party apps and not associated with virgin mobile.
I have to say you must be having a laugh! VM have known about this for ages. This to me is just the classic example of how much you care about your customers. In order to see your recent usage, you need the app. i have two iPhones with the app on each-it works on one! What??? Then when you ring up "sorry can't access",
The "recent usage" on accounts didn't show this for a while either-in fact I raised that in December. "we will get back to you" which they never did. I must check it out to see if current usage is working yet.
