Don't get texts from Interactive Investor

Since moving to Virgin Mobile texts sent from Interactive Investor don't get through to my phone - other text get through fine.  Are Virgin blocking these?  I've discussed with II and Virgin help desks but not getting anywhere.

Re: Don't get texts from Interactive Investor

Thanks for your post on our Community Forums @mudshark

 

Can you please advise me if you know any other users of our network that also experience this issue?

 

As we're a virtual network operator, we cannot always guarantee that all text messages will be delivered to our customers

 

Have any text messages come through to you, albeit later than expected, from Interactive Investor? 

 

Kindest regards,

David_Bn

Re: Don't get texts from Interactive Investor

Yes they tell me it's a problem they have with all Virgin Media phone users and no the texts never arrive.  I suggested they should discuss with VM but they don't see it as their problem.

Thanks

Re: Don't get texts from Interactive Investor

Thanks for your reply, mudshark,

 

Are these automated SMS messages? If so, we can try resetting your mobile network settings to see if the messages will come through for you.

 

Cheers,

Corey C

Re: Don't get texts from Interactive Investor

They're automated for Two Factor authentification, given that II have many users could it be that they are considered to be spam so blocked?  As far as I can tell the texts come don't come from a phone number so is that relevant?

Thanks

Re: Don't get texts from Interactive Investor

I have the same problem. Interactive Investor told me it's a problem with Virgin Mobile but given this thread is a month old now, I seriously wonder whether something has been done to fix the problem.

P.S. My last verification text from ii was on 31-Aug-2021
