Written on: 01/02/2017 by graham0806 (1 review written)

I had a call from Virgin Mobile to ask me to trade up which I politely said no I didn't want to as I am happy with my S6 and I didn't want the S7 so then it was the I phone 7 which I said no then the 2017 Samsung A5 which I again told them I wasn't interested and that at the end of my contract that I was considering leaving VM as the signal is poor in my area to that she promptly said bye and put the phone down. Then I get 2 emails confirming my trade up order. I call VM back and get down to… Read Full Review

“You need to start taking your customers seriously”

Written on: 15/01/2017 by mimi2891 (1 review written)

I've been with Virgin Mobile 11 days and within this time I have been hugely frustrated over something as simple as a voicemail. Due to the nature of my work, my voicemail service is very important to me and I have called your call centre at least on 7 separate occasions to try to get my voicemail working. Because since I transferred my number to virgin from my old network provider I haven't been able to get my voicemail set up it keeps saying there are technical problems. I've rang and spent… Read Full Review

“Appalling treatment from 'customer services'”

Written on: 29/11/2016 by Captain-Incandescent (1 review written)

Having spent in excess of three hours on the telephone to VM this week in order to capitalise on the Black Friday deals, and to upgrade my phone/package, I can only say one thing.....AAAAAAAAARGHHHH! The perversity and intransigence I experienced left me hugely frustrated and more than a little angry. Having been offered a deal by the retentions dept, I was put through to the sales dept to process the final details. I was then told that the offer I was given did not exist! After many cross… Read Full Review

“Disgusting Cudtomer Serivce”

Written on: 16/10/2016

I have been having poor internet connection for the last five days. Every time I call them they said they would look into it and call me back. But they never did. After speaking to them today the advisor was calling me a liar. When I asked him to put me through to the manager he would not. He actually put the phone aside and started talking about me and taking the mick out of me to a female colleague. I could hear every word clearly. I never put me through to the manager and then hung up on me… Read Full Review

“Your account is not secured:hackers and costly premium...”

Written on: 27/09/2016 by Denise1949 (1 review written)

The foreign call centres with staff that are not well trained to answer queries. The managers who cannot speak English correctly. They are not helpful when you are in trouble. They keep saying I cannot do anything about that, I have not been trained to answer your query instead of passing the call to someone who can. My mobile received a few premium texts without my consent, when notified virgin (call centre outside uk) they said they could not do anything about it, and the manager at the… Read Full Review

“Atrocious costumer service ”

Written on: 04/07/2016

My husband called them to have a monthly mobile plan and the only thing we can say is that Virgin has the worst costumer service we have ever experienced! After more than an hour on the phone nothing was sorted out! The speed and efficiency of the people who work in this company is just unbelievable. If this is to give them money, can you imagine what happens if you have a problem with them? We are just highly disappointed, shocked and frustrated… Read Full Review

“Don't do it! ”

Written on: 27/06/2016 by NP88 (1 review written)

I recently joined virgin media mobile. I was sent a SIM card which was faulty and had to call multiple times to get a new one sent to me. After not having mobile coverage for 2 days, I was very unimpressed with their sympathy. Their call centres are based in the phillipines, and although they speak good English... Their general courtesy and understanding is horrendous. I was not not given an apology or resolution, instead I got a lot of confrontational replies and asked if I wanted to leave at… Read Full Review

“Over 15 years with Virgin mobile, I count for nothing.”

Written on: 20/06/2016 by Radio-Granddad (2 reviews written)

As with many other reviewers my problems were with customer support. Several times I had to explain some details of my account and in the end at the last encounter I just hung up. Next I find my account had been closed without further discussion. They did me a favour, I kept meaning to look around for a better deal and now I have got it. I was loyal to them, they treated me appallingly. The name Virgin seems top attract users but they are no better, and in many ways worse, than other… Read Full Review

“Mobile disconnected without notice”

Written on: 12/06/2016

Having been abroad for a few years the family have not used any of our Virgin prepay sims. On phoning support I am told they can not be re-registered and it is necessary to get new sims/numbers. So what happens to all the credit we had - Virgin keep it of course and dear ole Richard makes even more money for doing sweet fa… Read Full Review
