Hello, I have an ongoing problem with my service connection. I have reported this before and I was told that there is nothing wrong with the towers. It then settled down for a few months and only happened intermittent whereby calls would disconnect. On 17th May 2021 I contacted Virgin Mobile and Sira from 2nd Line Faults Team seem to think the problem was with the wifi calling and switched it off (although I never knew I had this). She reassured me that would fix the problem with the calls dropping as well as the issue with people not being able to hear me at the other end. Whilst she was on the phone, she asked me to make a couple of calls and the receivers were able to hear me so it was assumed the issue was resolved. It settled for 24 hours and then it continued whereby I would be in the middle of a call and it would disconnect or when attempting to make a call the call would come up as call ended. The issue has continued and worsened to the stage that the use of my phone when making calls is not fit for purpose. For example: I was in the middle of a few calls today and they disconnected after speaking to someone for 8 mins, then after 10mins and then after 20mins. This is very frustrating especially when calling a service centre like a bank because I have to start all over again. It is unacceptable that Virgin Mobile have been unable to rectify this issue which as been on going for over a year. This cannot be my phone as the phone as I have a different phone to the one I had a year a go and the issue is still the same with my current phone. As I said, the issued settled down from about September to about March this year with only ad hoc call dropping during that time but since then it happens on every call and as I said it is not fit for purpose. Can you help as I don't know what to do next.
I'm sorry to hear about the issues you've had with your mobile service. It's disappointing this has been a problem for you for so long though.
Usually these problems are caused by either the SIM, the handset - or the coverage in the area. As you've tested another handset already without success we can rule that out. I'd like to take a further look into to see what we can do to help - just get back to me via PM (the purple envelope) and we'll take it from there.
Thanks for your reply Tom - I am not sure what you mean by a purple envelope? I have replied on here so you can look into the matter further my mobile phone service is not fit for purpose. Very frustrating with calls ending or dropping off.
Helen, don't expect to get this fixed anytime soon. I've had exactly the same problem for months. New SIM made no difference, eventually a customer service agent admitted to me the problem was due to the transition between the EE and Vodafone networks and couldn't give any time frame for getting it fixed. VM are well aware of the issue, they're just either unwilling or unable to fix it.
Hi c_smith, sorry to hear you've had this problem for so long. I'd be happy to take a look at what's been done, and see if there's anything more we can do to help? Just look out for my PM (the purple envelope) and we'll take it from there.
That's interesting as I have had this problem on and off for over a year now. Virgin Mobile changed my sim card twice last year and the problem continued. I then contacted the motorola and they asked me to send in the phone so it can be checked then that went missing in the post. I then acquired a new phone and the problem persists. It is therefore not a handset issue. Virgin Media keep saying there is nothing wrong with the towers. It is clearly a fault of Virginmobile service and it is extremely disappointing that they don't accept responsibility and/or fix the problem.
Thanks for this. I will certainly look into this company as it is not fit for purpose and totally unreasonable that the service issue has been ongoing for over a year and no responsibility has been accepted by VM because according to them the network coverage in my area is strong!
