Primary account holder...

Recently got a new phone and tried to logging into the Virgin Media app - keep getting an error stating it can only be accessed by the primary account holder - I am the primary account holder and I've double checked the email and password.

 

Any ideas for to fix this?

Hi @Macster54,

Thanks for providing that. To clarify, are you referring to the My Virgin Media app or a different one?

Can you also confirm at what point this screen and error message appears for you?

Thanks,

Re: Primary account holder...

Yes, when trying to access the My Virgin Media app.

 

Just tried it again this morning using the same log in details that's stored on my phone and, lo and behold, it worked.

Hello @Macster54.

 

I am sorry for the issues with the app version, am I correct in saying you are now able to log in on the website version?

 

Thanks,

Hayley

Re: Primary account holder...

Sorry for the confusion, no I can now log into the app using the same log in details as I use with the desktop version.

The error seems to have either rectified itself or someone has worked their magic behind the scenes.
