I had my Virgin Broadband installed 6 days ago. However, haven't received my 5GB SIM card as part of Oomph package. I have tried phoning plus have done the text queries. Going around in circles, no one helps. I have passed over all my details numerous times but still no SIM. ( I am a key worker)
The whole point is that I don't have a Virgin phone, I haven't received my SIM so I don't have a Virgin number. I have tried phoning and each time I give up after 20 minutes because it's using up all my remaining minutes. I have tried the text service multiple times but when someone does finally get back to me, they say wrong department and move me on, without anything getting sorted. I am reaching desperation point
I will give it a try, thanks, it's kind of you to take the time.
Unfortunately, my experience of phoning is of not getting through or finally getting through but not being the right department, so cannot help. The number of minutes left is diminishing rapidly. All I want is the SIM to be delivered and, if it has been lost in the post, for Virgin to send out a new one.
After another hour on the phone, I finally got to speak to someone. Unfortunately, I was informed that the mobile part of the Oomph bundle hasn't been set up as the matter had been referred to the fraud team and that the broadband shouldn't have been able to go ahead in the first place without them contacting me! Near in mind, that all this was set up over a month ago! I am still none the wiser and I have to wait for the fraud team to contact me, whenever that will be, then start the process of getting a SIM all over again, as a new order, even though it's meant to be part of my Oomph package. I was given a direct number to the fraud team but they are not taking calls. By the way, I am unaware of anything I could have possibly done which is remotely fraudulent!!!!
I am really sorry you've had problems setting up a new account.
It normally takes our fraud team 48 hours to get back in touch, but as you can appreciate with the current situation it might take longer than usual.
What I can do for you is check the account and make sure the correct process has been completed on the account and advise of any updates. In order to get your details I have sent you a private message please reply when you can.
Still no contact, still no SIM 😞 What more can I do?
Note that the order was originally for Oomph package was placed 17th Feb. The broadband was installed a week and a half ago but still no SIM and no contact from the fraud team ( though I have no idea why it's been referred to the fraud team)!
Today I received an email informing me of the £0 monthly bill for the Virgin mobile SIM, that I haven't yet received! The mobile component is included in my Oomph package bill. As such, I intend to stop that part of the direct debit, as I am still having to pay my original mobile provider.
