I've been having issues connecting to London Underground WiFi since the last Monday. I have contacted Virgin Mobile twice but they haven't been able to solve it. The last time I called, they kept passing me from the mobile team to virgin media then back to mobile then to media. 5 times in total. I'm getting the error messages - you have too many devices connected to our service. I'm only using 1 phone now but have had different mobiles in the past.
If any one could help, I would really appreciate it! Thank you.
Sorry you are still having problems, we will do our best to help. I appreciate you may have tried this and it may sound obvious but if not already it is probably worth trying a reinstall of the app
Failing that working, are you able to navigate to Wifi app settings-> help- >contact us and report the problem there, as by doing it that way we are able to identify you and gather data to help diagnose and fix it. Please keep us updated, we have not abandoned you...
Thanks for your reply. I have never needed to use the App to access London Underground Wifi. But anyway as you advised, I downloaded it and tried to register for an account. When it asked for my account number, I put in my Virgin Mobile account number in the format of FA12345678 but I was getting an error message of: Your account number should contain 9 digits. Please enter all 9 digits in the box.
Problem solved. Thank you for your help. What happened was there were 2 Virgin WiFi hotspots at each Underground station - Virgin Media (password required) and Virgin WiFi Free (no password). When I was with EE and o2, I always used to connect to the free one so now I think the free one has stopped working but I can instead use the other one since I'm now a Virgin Mobile customer.
Thanks for the update, interesting, I am pleased we got there in the end, as you say if one is with VM the app is a much better starting place. Hopefully it will work perfectly however if you do encounter network difficulties remember Wifi app settings-> help- >contact us is a good place to start as we will automatically gather the network data to accompany it.
I too am having a problem connecting to the London underground and have also been passed from my phone provide to Virgin a number of times. The virgin Twitter team provided the suggestion of the virgin connect so as shown in this post but i am not a virgin customer and therefore don't have a Virgin account.
It's there any other way i can get my details reset for my handset in the servers so that i can connect. This handset has been to EE previously and registered under that contact. Can't remember if i had any success though.i have also reset it back to factory settings a number of times so it is certainly a network registration problem.
