Trying to get a technician to visit

Hi, after getting the dreaded green screen plus no landline and hanging on for ages to get through to a technician, I have been told that a technician will visit my home in five days!!! Five days!! This is totally unacceptable. I have asked for the first available cancellation. Here’s hoping 🤞 is this a normal wait time? If so I think I shall be changing my service provider.

Re: Trying to get a technician to visit

Hi Lisampain,

You might be able to bring forward the appointment if someone else has rearranged/cancelled their appointment.

Log into my.virginmedia at the top of the page. 

Click on the Help tab (next to My Upgrades and Offers and Service Status); if you hover over that tab, a new menu will appear. 

Scroll on over to the Orders and Appointments tab and click ok.

Providing it's been arranged the visit will show there,  and you can reschedule from there if the timeslot booked is not convenient for you. 

If you're logging in using the app, open any of the pages and then use the the dots at the top to open the hidden menu. From there, you can select the Orders and Appointments tab.

Just on the specifics of the appointment, depending when you reported this, the 5days is around 2-3 working days.

For a residential service provider, that's not uncommon. Keep checking for those cancellations.

Re: Trying to get a technician to visit

Thank you. Yes I guess I’ll have to wait. Just been frustrating as looking on the forum it says if you get the dreaded green screen usually means that the box has burnt out. Wish virgin could of sent a new one and maybe an engineer too. Hopefully if this is the case he will bring one with him. Virgin really need to step up with their appointments.
