Re: Virgin media connect app - Can't enable wifi hotspots

Hi @marty3,

 

Welcome back to our Community Forum! Thank you for your post, and I'm sorry to understand that you're having some issues with the Connect App

 

Can you please let us know what steps you've already taken to troubleshoot the app and to see if you can resolve the issue?

 

Can you made sure that both the app and your device are up to date on the most recent software?

 

Have you tried to delete then re-install the app to see if there are any changes?

 

Are you having this issue on any other devices?

Re: Virgin media connect app - Can't enable wifi hotspots

Yea I've tried everything. Even have a new phone now. I had the same problem on my Samsung note 20. Now I have brand new sim free galaxy s21. The very first app I installed was virgin connect hoping that now I be able to use the elusive virgin media hotspots. But same problem. 

It sets up just fine saying successful you are now all set up to use the virgin media hotspots. Before the android 11 update at this point the app would ask me if I would allow the app to control my WiFi and connect automatically to the virgin hotspots. But since android update this don't happen. Nothing happens. 

And I even try to manually connect to a virgin media hotspot by tapping it in WiFi but it asks for user name and password. I've tried my virgin media account name and password and my virgin mobile account name and password neither work.

I tried the AKA connection type change. That don't work either. 

EVERY THING IS THE VERY LATEST VERSIONS.  Like I said I've tried every thing. Uninstall and reinstall. Are you gonna make me type in the actual versions? I will of you need me to. My phone and all apps are very latest versions. 

 

Please help me. This is seriously effecting my work. If I can't get it fixed this week I'm going to sky or bt as they offer the same service only difference is there actually works. I see the hotspots all over the place to but I can't be f@#$%d to switch it is a hassle. I would rather you just fix my account on your end or get your it developers to sort this out.

Re: Virgin media connect app - Can't enable wifi hotspots

Good luck getting them to fix it. It's been 8 months since the issue was raised. It's been 3 months since they raised a ticket. There's most likely still no update on it (I wouldn't be surprised if they've managed to close it again). Considering cancelling if this continues to go on - I've been patient but it feels like they just don't care.

Done, despite a ticket already having been opened earlier in this thread and @Kath_F saying that she will come to me with updates.

Re: Virgin media connect app - Can't enable wifi hotspots

Hi HandyHat, 

Apologies for the delay in coming back to you directly. I was off on annual leave and your thread got closed so I have been waiting for you to reply to your thread so it would come back to me. 

There has been no update on the IT ticket I raised for you as of yet however the team have advised that there is an issue with Android 11 and we’re working to resolve it in a future release of the app which is expected in the coming months.

I know this is not the news you would be hoping for however hopefully the new release won't be much longer and will work for you on your Android 11 device. 

Apologies once again.

Re: Virgin media connect app - Can't enable wifi hotspots

Ah no problem. I hope you had a good holiday!

While I'm happy to hear that they have acknowledged the issue with Android 11, I'm disappointed to hear that their timeline is only "in the coming months". It's been 16 months since the first dev preview of Android 11 - at this rate, I'll be on 12 before 11 is fixed...
