Re: Virginmedia complaints

Hello, thank you for your reply. Basically, the problem is that the picture has been pixalating for a couple of months but started to get worse so I contacted Virgin. The first problem was that because I am the secondary account they could not help because every time I could not answer the security question. A lady last week said she would send a letter to change it. She said I would receive it 3 to 5 w3orking days. Not received. A gentleman on Wednesday said he would arrange for a box to come on Friday, nothing came. Anway contacted someone on Monday and found out the password was for data protection, not the online password. Over the years has told me this. My wife, who is the main account holder has the onset of dementia and is no good on phone. Today I got an email saying thank you for choosing Click and collect. I did not choose this and was told it would be delivered. I am because I am classed as clinical vulnerable and Blackpool has one of the highest rates of covid in the U.K I have been told to avoid going in shops or crowded places for the time being ,so the box can stay were it is.agoThis only part of the poor service I have had The reason I want the complaints section is because everthing could have sorted out a while ago and his only part of the poor service I have had.

Re: Virginmedia complaints

It's easy for me to say, that pixellation on live TV is indicative of a signal fault somewhere. Either in your box, your cabling or the street cabinet.

From the sounds of it, you've got an account-security problem thrown in for good measure. I'll level with you, that the complaints process isn't likely to rectify this situation and potentially could just add another 30days to your current predicament. That's not to say "don't do it", but please don't hold hope on your situation magically being resolved just because you've got a complaint open.

I've escalated your post to VM forum staff to see whether they can rectify this quicker/easier than you've managed thus far. They may find themselves stuck behind the same password/security issue that you currently have - but they may just be able to break the deadlock. Ordinarily you'd be waiting a couple of days for this, but with the "magic wand" I've waved, that timescale should be cut drastically. See what they come up with, and go from there.

Re: Virginmedia complaints

Hello  I sent a message through pm but I don't know if you received  though Thanks but I still waiting for the letter to change the telephone password which they said they would post last Wednesday.As I said in the post the problem is that no one over the years told me it was the data protection password they wanted and I was giving the online password. Virgin seems to be the only company that I use that uses this system Will contact you when it arrives. Thanks for the help.

Re: Virginmedia complaints

Thank you for your message. It as probably been the most helpful . I have now received letter with help with password so hopefully that problem ca n be resolved. I have two boxes and the one box upstairs works fine so it seems to be a problem with the other box. My complaints are I was told a letter would be sent on the 4th none arrived. I was also told that a box would be sent and I would receive it on the 6th,nothing arrived. I contacted customer service on the 9th and a box would be sent and also another letter. I received an email next day saying thank you for choosing click and collect ,which I didn't I asked for it to be delivered. The v next day I checked to say had a letter been sent and was told yes. I received a letter on Saturday the 14th and the letter was dated the 12th. So you can see people have not been straight with me. Now I have received the letter I can contact them again and ask for the new box to be delivered to my house as was originally promised. Thanks for help.
