MyVirginMedia showing old account after house move. Cannot register for new account.

Hello,

I moved house a few months ago which involved moving my Virgin Media broadband service from one area to another. On activation day at the new address activation failed and it took 3 calls to support, over 2 days, to resolve. I was not told what the cause of the problem was. Services are now working fine and I am getting billed for the new account.

However, when I log into MyVirginMedia (app or website) only the old, closed, account is shown. Navigating to the 'Manage account' page results in the "Sorry, we have a problem" page being displayed with no details of what is wrong.

I've not had to register for a new account when moving before but just in case this would resolve the issue I did try. I tried using the same email as my old account (and the one I am reciving bills to) and a different email. Both failed to register with the "Sorry, we have a problem" page being displayed.

Could someone please have a look at my account, there is clearly something wrong with it. It could be related to the activation failure as well.

Thanks.

Hi @Nymerus

Thanks for posting and welcome to the community.

If you've moved house and you wanted to use the same online account details as the old property, the process is a Move and Transfer. This takes 24 hours to go through. 

I'll send you a PM now to arrange this.

Best,

HI jmgears, thanks for the message. 

I am sorry to hear that you have not been able to register, can you confirm if the email which you are using was used on a previous account? If so, this may need to be migrated. Do you wish to use that email? 

Chris

Hi jmgears, 

Thanks for coming back to us on this. 

We wouldn't be able to update the email address on an old, closed account however if you're wanting to use the email that is already on the old account then we can move this across to the new account. 

In order to do that I will need to confirm some information with you. I have sent you a private message regarding this. Just click on the little plum envelope at the top right-hand side of the page to access your inbox.

Thanks,
