Virgin Mobile Has No Customer ServiceBy Paul Jarosy, posted: Nov 12I noticed on my card statement that I was charged 3 times for my monthly service. I called Virgin and after waiting on hold for 30 mins , I get a none english speaking person (surprise, surprise). After talking for over and hour, he tells me that it was computer error that caused this to happen and that they would issue a credit immediatley. It has been over 24 hrs and no credit issued yet. The only thing that happened was that they charged my account for the fourth time. I called again and after wasting my morning on hold and trying to understand the people, they tell me computer error again and will issue credit. I have been using virgin for about 4years and their overall service has gone done the toliet. I have swithed to T Mobile prepaid for service on 2 of my phones and just buy phones online unlocked. After this big pain I am ending my last phone with them. If you really are getting screwed by a mobile company fille a complaint with the FCC online.

Trust the bad reviewsBy Steven Soulin, posted: Oct 12Purchased a HTC One V from VM online, phone arrive followed the activation procedure, was able to establish an account online but was not able to activate the phone itself, spent 1 1/2 hours on the phone with a very apologetic customer service agent, but it was hard to hear him clearly during the duration due to excessive background noise. Overall service was slow and took too long, agent was unable to help me so I requested a RMA # to send back the phone and cancel my plan. The HTC phone itself was nice and good quality, but I also noticed signal strength in my area (South Florida) was terrible, was told to go near a window by the agent, but that did not help if it doesn't work indoors or is spotty at best. Biggest issue was activation, was a futile attempt to fix and now I have to send the phone back at my expense, losing out on the expedited shipping to get it on top of it $20+! Virgin Mobile was a major disappointment for me!

Virgin Mobile-You Get What You Pay ForBy HJThunderThreat, posted: Oct 12My experiences with virgin mobile has been fair. I had Virgin for roughly 5 years with not much problems. The phones are getting better. The plans are reasonable but the mobile service is not the best. Some times the siginal would be the best one day or two and on other days the service would be not up-to-par.Customer Service had not been bad as some have mentioned. I've made a dobule payment and called Virgin to correct the mistake. Virgin gave my money back and them some. I would tell people who are looking for a prepaid service to do their homework and check their addresses to see if their covered by virgins service. The only thing I don't care for on Virgin Mobile is the Virgin Mobile Live app.

Go ANYWHERE else!!!!By Drumlin, posted: Oct 12For the love of God, don't go with Virgin Mobile!! I was paying for automatic top up for my daughter and son-in-law. The account was cancelled minutes after an automated payment. Obviously those minutes won't be used, but VM refuses to refund $70! I can't believe it!!! They're soooo bad, and the coverage area completely sucks. Go with ANY other carrier but them! Save yourself a whole lot of incredible frustration and hurt.

Not Worth ItBy IndiaRAtkinson, posted: Sep 12Pros: The phones are expensive, but they do have some neat ones. My internet works better than on my At&t phone I had before. No contract (biggest plus). Cons: The customer service is awful. You will NEVER speak to someone who really speaks English; the reps are almost impossible to understand and have a difficult time if you use words beyond a 5th grade level. It is very annoying. With how much money they make, Virgin Mobile could hire America, Canadian, British, or anyone else who speaks English for its English speaking customers. The voice quality is hit and miss. There is always something wrong whether it be my phone literally not working, them not giving me credit for paying my bill, texts not coming in for hours or more. Final word, stay away. I was really hoping to like this company after having such a negative experience with At&t, but no. It is just as bad. If they hired new reps, it would be way better, but until then, stay far, far away.

Dont go to Vergin Mobil if you want Pay as you go.By Robert Lloyd, posted: Aug 12My letter to them. Hi I entered into an account as pay as you go. I did not use your service for two weeks after my last payment expired. The phone was locked out by you for the two weeks so it could not be used. I have now changed the plan to an unlimited one but you want me to pay for the two weeks of lockout? Why would I do that on a Pay As You Go plan? If I am going to continue to use your service it must be that I do not back pay for your service while you have the service locked out…would you? Please respond before I purchase a new phone from a reasonable company. Thanks, Bob

awful company staffed by tossersBy Peter Campbell, posted: Aug 12had a mobile on contract. broke phone and wanted to change tarrif for the new phone, told that i would have to pay up the rest of contact (£170) before they would consider changing tarrif. Also moved address and no service where i now live.. Dont ever buy a phone with these tossers, poor service area with even poorer after sales.
