For about 4 months now I have been unable to receive messages containing a code for my 2 Step Verification until maybe 3-4 days after it's been requested. I called Virgin several times about it and the people on the phone say "we have fixed this for you", but they haven't.
I still don't have the ability to receive them and thought as my contract was up for renewable a new sim card would help, but nope and trying to transfer account details onto the new phone is impossible because of this issue.
Truly frustrated now to have a new phone of which I cannot use fully because of my dilemma.
Apparently, Vm announced in July, 'they were looking into this, and would get back to us with any updates'
Yet, here we are, 7 months later, and the 'latest post' from VM is:
Thanks for coming back to us and apologies for the delayed reply.
I've checked the ticket for this and it's still open. I know it's not what you want to hear but the support team are still looking into and working hard to fix this asap.
I have had to resort to purchasing a PAYG on another provider ('3' actually) to be able to receive these, OTP and 2FA, and think that after 7 MONTHS they are stilll 'looking into this' shows just how little VM thinks of customers...
Currently have a case open with CICAS over this, and am also considering going to the national press over the apparent 'couldn't care less' attitude from VM, who incidentally are quite 'quick' to take their monthly payment for the service, (that they are not supplying as agreed). Once the CICAS case is done, am moving 5 phones and my BB/TV/phone to a more 'customer orientated' provider...
Know this won't solve your problem, but may make you see just what a disgraceful company VM are....
'I think I saw the first posts appearing about a year ago! Slow drip at first before the tap opened'
Which I think Enli, shows just how 'hard they are working in it' which in fact REALLY means, 'not bothered, can't be **bleep**, so there' which in truth, is VM's attitude to anything that they may have to actually DO something to solve the problem... NO INTEREST, as long as they get their monthly wages payments keep coming out of your bank account, and that's the TRUTH!!
