Re: virgin media dont answer the phone

I would also like to know the answer to this.  have spent 4 hour on the phone waiting to get through to activate V6 box, this was after 1 week waiting for internet hub to be activated.  System auto disconnects you if you hold for 1hr 2min, this has happened to me twice.  Phone to cancel account and told they are too busy to answer and to call back later!  Time to go back to Sky.

Re: virgin media dont answer the phone

Hi amurnieks and roy-b,

 

Sorry to hear of the hold times, we're busier than normal but do endeavour to answer calls asap.

 

Have you called 0800 953 9500? 

 

Kind regards,

Re: virgin media dont answer the phone

Yes also called this number and a few others I found but to no gain.  Have also sent a formal complaint via the complaints system 2 days ago and had no response to that either.  Not at all impressed, all I want to do is get an activation code set to the V6 boxes!!!

Re: virgin media dont answer the phone

28 days to activate a new set up on a new contract! I’m sorry but that is absolutely ridiculous. My only goal now is to cancel my contract as the service is not working.

Re: virgin media dont answer the phone

No it doesn't take 28 days for activation Roy, you mentioned you'd submitted a complaint, so I was advising of the timescales for that.

That response is about as useful as a chocolate tea pot. Thanks for the help.

Re: virgin media dont answer the phone

I also want to know how to cancel when nobody answers the phone? Awful, awful, awful! It took my 4hrs of on hold over the weekend to transfer my mobile number using the PAC and they said it was "easy peasy" on the pack . What a mistake. I have never experienced such bad customer service. Makes BT look awesome.
