No Virgin Media Wall Socket

Joining in

Hi there,

Not a unique problem but I've just joined Virgin Media and do not have a wall socket. I've a master socket but not a Virgin media socket or equivalent to that.

How do I get in contact without using the telephone number to book an engineer appointment? 

Many thanks,

Hi Kath,

I'm sorry to post this on someone else's thread; I posted a similar question a day or two ago and it has not yet been picked up by staff.

I am unable to use a telephone and cannot call to request an engineer to install the VM Socket at my new flat. Would you be able to help?

Many thanks,

I've moved the post above to keep it in the same thread and will flag it for staff attention if not picked up during the day.

Did you have any success with calling the install number?

Thank you for moving the post - I have given up on doing this myself and got someone to help call to the self installation number.

I was asking for another way to get in contact as I'm recovering from surgery and not easily understood over the phone at the moment (Not the fault of VM: just wouldn't have been fun for anyone involved). 

Many thanks anyway
