Yes, I had the same issue and it wasn't what I'd agreed to. The usual Virgin help didn't help me, o2 didn't help me... But someone from Virgin sorted me out on this forum in the end. I got a bill credit for the amount of the o2 bill.
Thanks for the replies, I was speaking to someone on the WhatsApp service but it was a struggle to understand them and as soon as they realised I didn’t want to buy more services they lost interest and transferred me to someone who has just ignored me since then so I’ll try over on the account section of the forum here.
Thank you for reaching out to us in our community and welcome, sorry to hear your £25 Sim card charge has started before your Volt package has kicked in, when you upgrade to Volt the Sim is ordered on the call Via the O2 website, the Volt package does normally start the next day unless we are removing part of a service which is then a 28 Days notice.
We can arrange for your PAC code so you can give this to 02 before your Oomph Sim is cancelled.
Ordered the ultimate volt package a few weeks ago but am not getting it installed until later on this week as that is when my Sky contract ends. Received the O2 sim a couple of days after the order was placed and have been billed already so not best pleased.
I'm really sorry you aren't being made aware of the full process when changing your package to our VOLT bundles - I'll make sure this is fed back to the teams. As previously mentioned, the entire order for both Virgin Media and O2 services are processed at the moment you accept it. Our teams have no control over when your O2 SIM becomes active, we can only set your Virgin Media change date.
If you have any disputes or concerns regarding the O2 side of your service, you would need to contact O2 Customer Services directly.
