Porting over 2 weeks now

I’m so frustrated with Plusnet, my sim won’t activate after being in a pending state for over 2 weeks now and nothing anyone can do. If I port away I will be taking the problem with me. Plusnet can’t force it to activate. My mother has a care line with me as her contact, I don’t have a landline they can’t get in touch with me. Seems mad they can’t do anything for me. I think ofcom  may be my next port of call. Plusnet say I just have to wait my feeling is that if it hasn’t happened by now it isn’t going to....

Hi @Sarahr138 Thanks for contacting us via our community forums and I'm sorry to see you've had issues with your SIM not activating for so long and the inconvenience and concern this is causing.

I'm chasing this up with our operations team and I should be able to provide an update tomorrow.

Re: Porting over 2 weeks now

Hi @Sarahr138 

I've been advised that we're aware of the problem with your account and this is raised with the appropriate team to fix as soon as possible. Unfortunately I'm afraid that we're not able to provide a timeframe as to when it will be resolved.

I do sincerely apologise for the inconvenience this causes.

Re: Porting over 2 weeks now

It’s not really good enough is it. I left EE to come over to you in good faith, I had a perfectly working phone I could receive calls on. The pending problem does seem to be an issue plus net encounters on a regular basis going back over a long period of time. Just telling there’s nothing you can do is not useful. You’ll expect me to pay you in the same way I expect a fully workable service. I am totally screwed I can’t leave so I have to put up with this.

i can’t believe there is nothing you can do. For something that was to take up to 2 hours to port has now been over 2 weeks! So this is it is it, I stay pending......

thanks for the service really glad I switched.

Re: Porting over 2 weeks now

Thanks for getting back to us @Sarahr138 

Again I do sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused by this problem. We're already doing what we can to fix this as soon as possible, so there won't be anything more we can do I'm afraid.

Once we've resolved it feel free to drop me a PM and I'll be happy to discuss a gesture of goodwill with you.

Re: Porting over 2 weeks now

3 weeks and still counting.... still no activated sim....nothing like a company taking ownership of their issue and working hard to resolve it! This really is nothing like that.

Re: Porting over 2 weeks now

No point going through it all again on here. Sim is pending and apparently there is nothing you can do...

Re: Porting over 2 weeks now

Hi Sarah. I’m happy to take ownership of the problem updating you on the progress however it’s not really going to change or speed things up because we’re already doing what we can to get this resolved for you as soon as possible. 

My colleagues in our operations team proactively ensure that any pending accounts we have are chased up with the relevant suppliers. 

Once I’ve received an update I’d happy to let you know however it’s possible that I wouldn’t get an update until the problem is sorted but that doesn’t mean that we’re not doing anything as we’d be chasing this up in the background.

Re: Porting over 2 weeks now

Thanks, it is sorted now. It is just frustrating, that i waited for two days for porting and than nearly two days without any information my old and new sim cards just stopped working.

Re: Porting over 2 weeks now

@dvigelis 

Have they offered you compensation for their failure?

 

@Sarahr138 

Don't forget your compensation if they ever fix it - or if you choose to cancel and probably lose your number due to their ongoing failure.

Re: Porting over 2 weeks now

Hi Gandalf, I’m up and running several weeks on, I’ve lost count, you mentioned compensation. Let’s talk.
