If you have nothing helpful to say sod off, What the hell has COVID 19 got to do with contacting virgin? You suggest I sit scrolling up and down or get my iPad on my knee all night ready to change channels, **bleep**

Seriously? What has COVID 19 got to do with me contacting Virgin?
Well you see, far from whatever is floating round your head, the call handling system and getting a remote dispatched relies on PEOPLE. There is no magic remote fairy, expressing your wish for a new one results in, under normal circumstances, people doing things. Less people, as some are quarantined (like you) means less things getting done. I understand thats a difficult concept to grasp, but I assure you its true. Ernie, hes PEOPLE too. PEOPLE who give up their spare time to offer useful, practical advice to other PEOPLE.
Now I understand that placing your IPAD on a horizontal surface while you are NOT changing channels is equivalent to one of the trials of Hercules. But I dont really think it was being offered as a permanent solution. More a workaround until stuff calms down a bit, theres food back in the shops and we all stop dying, cos you know, dead people dont dispatch remotes. The lazy **bleep**ers.

if you are in self isolation i would recommend VM do not send one out. The remote works and the 0 is int he same place. not a priority and not worth sending a delivery person to a self-isolating person.
Thanks for your post. We're unable to order a replacement remote via the community, the easiest way to get that sorted at the moment would be using our messaging service, which you can do by texting us on 07533 051809. Alternatively, you can call us on 0345 454 1111 (or 150 free from a VM line). We're really busy at the moment given the current situation with having to close some of our contact centres.
