    Virgin go to TalkTalk and e-mail addresses lost.

    Post by papa_umau on Wed 02 Dec 2015, 11:26 am

    Virgin broadband customers told: we're moving you to TalkTalk and you'll lose your email

    Virgin Media is transferring 100,000 broadband and home phone customers to TalkTalk, and customers will have 12 months to adopt a new email address.

    Get the full and awful story from The Telegraph HERE




    Don't you just love these fete-a-comple' messages ?

    It's bad enough that they are doing this without any permission from their loyal customers, but it is even worse when we realise that the e-mail addresses that we have been using for years are now going to be just so much rubbish.

    Have they any idea just how hard it is to change e-mail addresses to banks, insurers, business customers and friends and family ?

    That's a bit cheeky is it not ?

    To tell people that they are going to lose their broadband and their mobile numbers without any warning is a bit nasty.

    Glad I am not with Virgin.

    That's one more reason why I will not use a contract phone from any company! They can do what they like and they have you by the short hairs.
