Pay as you go

Can't topup sim, account details not available

Hey,

    I'm having issues topping up a PAYG sim.

- Phoning 2345 starts with the message "We're sorry, but your balance is currently unavailable", any attempt to TopUp results in failure with some sort of "unknown problem with our system", that's with PayPal, Debit Card, and Voucher.

- I attempted to topup online, via PayPal, Debit Card, and Voucher, all failed with a similarly vague error.

- I downloaded MyVodafone, registered, loading the app shows "We're sorry, we can't find this information right now" in the Data and Credit sections, again, any attempt to TopUp via PayPal, Debit Card, and Voucher all failed, usually with the app just refreshing without any error message.

 

Any help to investigate what's going on (it's possible the sim is in the semi-deactivated state?) would be appreciated. I've already tried the online chat, and ended up on the phone to them, they promised me it would work, but it failed.

 

Thanks

 

Matt

Hi @Mark, can I ask if there's anybody technical that can look at my request? I've sent the messages as requested, and been told to go into a store.

As a precaution I asked for confirmation that they will be able to help, to which I was asked to provide screenshots of the errors. Upon doing this the response I got shows my original message hasn't been read, and my screenshots haven't been looked at. I was told it's great that I bought a voucher, and they hope it works, and then given advice to topup online next time....

 

Whilst I appreciate that not all things can be pushed "up" the technical support ladder, I'd at least like to be at the rung where my request is investigated seriously.

Hey @Andy, I've since received another response and provided a voucher to try and apply. My twitter handle is GestaNV . I also don't want to come across as rude, I've worked in customer service and I understand tiered support very well and respect all levels. I just wish the triage system was more effective 😉

 

Thanks

 

Matt

Thanks for passing that across @MattOG - I've popped a message back over to you on Twitter to get this sorted. I appreciate you've had a less than ideal journey with this so far and I'm eager to get this sorted for you.
