Having to reply again as my last post got swamped by pop up adverts from VM and I must have pressed send as all the Windows were flying about. My preferences have been se r for years but are recently being completely ignored. The question is why, and how can I stop this nuisance.
It's not actually a profile number. It's my virgin mobile phone number so VM have got it anyway. It seems clear they have just given one of their sales teams a databank of mobile numbers to play with, regardless of the marketing preferences. I don't put my phone numbers in any profile as I don't want to be phoned by various sales people.
I'm having fun watching the weather change from sunny to snow blizzard to sunny and back again every quarter of an hour. How dare people make fun of the lovely Welsh weather I'm used to!
My preferences are set to no marketing too but they've been bombarding me with calls for weeks because my contract ends next week. I don't seem to be able to block calls on Xperia but I just marked the number as Virgin Media Sales Ignore - and ignore it.
I have not been called by this number for over a month now!
Whilst it would be nice to think they took note and decided to observe my preferences, it is more likely because a few weeks ago I ordered a new contract phone deal, on the virgin mobile web site through my mobile account. The sales team clearly now have no reason to pester me as there is no longer any commission for them to earn!
Some of us just prefer to decide for ourselves when to buy something. In my case it is when I donate my old phone to a friend or relative.
