Ordering new SIM card

I have the same problem - service disconnected through infrequent use, despite having £9 credit.

It would have been helpful to have had prior warning of this termination.  Will my unused credit be refunded?

I have two other payg phones and presumably these will go the same way.

I have had to resort to this forum to find out what's happening, as I was getting nowhere trying to communicate with the Virgin robot.

Re: Ordering new SIM card

Hi snoman, thanks for getting in touch.

 

Sorry to hear you've had this issue with your mobile number.

 

As far as I understand it's always been in the terms & conditions that a mobile number needs to be used from time to time to remain active that's not a recent change, however from January 2022 it has been decided VM won't offer Pay As You Go services, so if you'd like to keep your mobile numbers with us you would need to take out a Pay-Monthly SIM deal before then. 

 

In some cases we are able to provide refunds for remaining credit - if you get back to me via PM I'll do all I can to help.

Re: Ordering new SIM card

@snoman possibly you have PM's disabled as I'm not able to send you a message? Please let us know when you've re-enabled them so we can confirm the details & try to help further.
