Calls and texts not working

I spoke to an adviser a couple of days ago to get a new sim deal.  I am now unable to make or receive phone calls or texts.  Please can someone from Virgin respond to get it sorted out. Thanks

Re: Calls and texts not working

Hi there @sueraf

 

Welcome to our Community and thanks so much for your first post; I am sorry to understand that you're having some issues with your SIM. 

 

So we can assist you, can you elaborate on the issue?

  • Did you take out a new SIM deal? 
  • Did you receive a new SIM?
  • What happens when someone tries to call you?
  • What happens when you try and call out? 

Have you checked the status of your account via your online account at all?

Re: Calls and texts not working

Hi Katie,

I took out a new SIM package last week (although it doesn't actually kick in until my refresh on 28/5) but did not get a new sim card. 

Since my call to Virgin to arrange this I now get a new symbol at the top of my screen - a phone with a wifi symbol - which sits alongside my normal wifi and mobile signal symbols.  But at random points in the day I get no mobile signal and cannot make or receive calls or texts, and sometimes this new phone/wifi symbol disappears.  This loss of signal has never happened before so must be linked to whatever was done on my account last week. 

I get messages such as "unable to connect to network", "selected network not available" and then randomly it will re-connect and I am suddenly able to make calls.  This happens when I am at home so it is not that I am in a bad signal area.

I have 3 numbers on my account and I changed all three sim packages when I called.  The other 2 seem to be working fine.

I have just looked on my online account.  I'm not sure what you mean by "status"??  I can see that two new "accounts" have appeared, although there is no phone number attached to them and no information in them.

When someone texts or calls me at a point when I have no signal, the message never comes through so I have no idea anyone is trying to call me.

Re: Calls and texts not working

And just to add to my reply of yesterday.  I switched my phone on this morning and received text messages which had been sent the evening before but had not been delivered. I was able to send a text message and then 5 minutes later went to no service.  So once again I cannot make calls or texts. I really do need this sorting our asap.
