OTPs delayed


With absolutely no help from VM.

I ordered a new SIM card which arrived with instructions. You text READY to the number given and "they'll let you know when it's time to swap" which of course they don't, so when my Internet connection failed I assumed it was time to swap SIMs. You're then supposed to wait for a request for the PIN which is provided. Needless to say that didn't happen either so about an hour later I simply texted the PIN to the same number and waited ..... numerous hours (well, about 24). During this SIM exchange I received no texts at all (worrying!) but then they all came through so I logged on to my Santander bank account,  requested the OTP and .... it came through in seconds!!! 

So, thanks VM for being so useless but I sorted it myself!!
