I’ve been trying to cancel an order I have placed on 05/08/2022, due to a change in circumstance.
I have made numerous calls and am getting passed from department to department, with numerous hang ups and cold transfers.
I’ve been on this call for 28 minutes and have yet to get past the validation stage of the call, the call handler has also given me the name two different people, asking me if I am that person. Surely that goes against data protection?
can see from other posts here that, help to cancel an order can be difficult. Hoping there is someone who can advise the best possible way for me to do this?
Try calling 150 from a VM phone or by dialling 0345 454 1111 - select options 1,1,4,4, - thats the UK based retentions team - but calling at 08.00 is the best time to get through without being diverted offshore. "TOP TIP: If you're struggling to get through or are tired of waiting in the queue - you can try Virgin Media's cancellation and retentions department directly on…. 0800 952 2277 or 0800 052 2001 - no guarantee of getting through there either though
You can Cancel In writing to… Virgin Media Sunderland SR43 4AA
Include dates, name ,address and all account details. They say to also include your phone number so they can call you to confirm - probably to make you an offer to stay. Do it by registered mail next day delivery guaranteed and with a receipt for signature on arrival.
But your contract doesnt actually start until the equipment has been installed and you have an active connection - so if you never actually switch it on there are plenty of opportunities to cancel within the 14-day post connection cooling off period - at no cost.

thanks for the reply. I’m unable to get through to the retention team on those numbers as it asks for the account number. Which I haven’t actually been provided with yet. I only have an order reference number to go on, and no one seemingly can search by order reference on whichever system they use.
I managed to speak to someone offshore and he advised that my order ‘probably’ hasn’t gone through, as there are already services at the address I was suppose to move to, he said they have to contact the account holder there to organise for their service to be stopped/moved and then I would have to replace my order.
I might just write to them to be sure…..
I worked in a call centre many years ago and I was able to search by order number, seems silly not to be able to do that
I'm not sure but would have thought that either the sales team (0800 952 2039) or the preinstall team (0800 052 1734) would be able to cancel. They should be able to perform a search on the postcode and house number if they can't find it using the order number
