No improvement here. One month with ‘No Service’. Quick reboot today to receive imported bank text but within minutes ‘No Service’ again. Virgin Media tell me this forum will be notified when they have fixed the SIM problem so watch this space ......
Yep got a third new sim and I've been ok for 2 days. The problem seems to be with sim cards with serial numbers starting 319. If you have one of these I would suggest getting a new one sent out, if that one starts 319 then I reckon burn it!!! Can't really believe we have had to get the resolution ourselves on this forum, no updates at all from Virgin.
Well after 8 weeks of problems following my Virgin imposed SIM update - and it didn't have 319 anywhere in the number - and no resolution or any real help from customer services, after missing a very important call because I hadn't realised my phone had lost its service and over 30 hours without managing to get the service back, despite numerous reboots and attempts to manually connect to the network, while I was away for a long weekend so completely out of contact, I decided enough was enough and as I am out of contract have now moved to a SIM only contract with another provider - got PAC code by text from Virgin and moving my number over has been very smooth with new SIM instantly recognised so hopefully I am back with a reliable service - and I got a better deal in terms what's included in the package for the same amount of money.
For those of you still in contract and therefore unable to move I sincerely hope that Virgin sort this problem out for you very soon because I understand your frustrations .... for those out of contract I can only say think about moving - I've been with Virgin for over 10 years and had been reluctant to move because I wasn't sure how easy it would be - but my experience, as others have indicated on this thread, has been painless.
I don’t want to get too excited but I have had mobile service for almost 24 hours now. After one month of almost continuous ‘No Service’ I am wondering in Virgin Media have fixed the fault?
Maybe just a coincidence but I requested replacement sim number three yesterday. I am now loath to use it if number two sim has started working. Do I have to replace sim or can I continue using number two sim if it’s behaving itself?
