I cancelled my virgin account all together I have never used the SIM card and it's been a nightmare trying to speak to anybody as the number on the invoice is non existant if that is case how have you charged me? I have been hung up on twice and wrote an email to the complaints department and I've not heard from them either how on earth do you get a reply or someone to call??
I can only appreciate the inconvenience that you have to go through about your cancellation request and the delay on your complaint response. If you could please ring us on 03456000789 to get this sorted for you. Also, here's our Complaint code of practice should this be helpful.
I call to cancel the sim only to be told that I can only cancel on the last day of my monthly cycle of payments!!
I then realise that I will be on holiday and call again, this time I appear to speak to somebody more reasonable who tells me that the sim only contract has been cancelled, phew!
What do I find when I come back from holiday? The contract has not been cancelled and VirginMedia have lied to me! Do I really have to go to OFCOM to cancel a sim? I am well over the 12 month contract length and so I should be able to cancel quickly.
Thanks for contacting us K0sh and sorry to hear of the issues that you've been having with your contract and trying to cancel it. Would you be able to call in and speak to the team on 0345 600 0789 as we cannot process any cancellations via this forum. Please could you call back into the team?
No need to call anybody now you are out of contract. Here are two ways to do it.
PAC or STAC?
Taking your number with you? -If you want to take your number with you, you’ll need a Porting Authorisation Code, usually called a PAC. You can get a PAC in one of three ways:
Call us on 789 from your Virgin Mobile or 0345 6000 789* from any other phone
Sign in to youronline accountand select Switching to make your request
Text ‘PAC’andyour date of birth (in DD/MM/YYYY format) to 65075For example: PAC 01/03/1984
Don’t want to take your number with you? -If you want to change mobile provider and automatically cancel your current service but not keep your mobile number, you’ll need a Service Termination Authorisation Code (STAC). You can get a STAC in one of three ways:
Call us on 789 from your Virgin Mobile or 0345 6000 789 * from any other phone
Sign in to youronline account and select Switching to make your request
Text ‘STAC’andyour date of birth (in DD/MM/YYYY format) to 75075For example: STAC 01/03/1984
When you request a PAC, we’ll give it to you straight way and send it by text message too.
As a Very Insightful Person, I'm here to share my knowledge. I don't work for Virgin Media.
Enlli, I wish to terminate my SIM and therefore no other phone provider comes into the equation. I had originally logged into my account and tried the STAC method and I was surprised at how easy it seemed. But on the next page or so, it the page would would not allow me to terminate my SIM as I was not going to any other provider. Hence my call to the support team.
Steven, I did call 789 from my tablet and spoke to a support person and her flowchart of questions did not seem to cover a termination request. She kept asking which provider I was wanting to transfer to!!! There then followed a surreal conversation about my current mobile phone provider (talkmobile who I have been with for years) and how much they cost and their charges which were irrelevent. I got a bit tetchy and she then passed me onto "retentions" who kept asking if there was someone else who could take over the contract?? Finally I got a bit tetchy with him also and we sanity prevailed and received a cancellation text and email. Cor blimey!
Except it has not really been cancelled, just put onto Pay As You Go at the end of a month. Gawd give me strength!
I will be very proactive in warning people not to buy a SIM from VirginMedia.
