02 boostbox

Hello i got a 02 boostbox on Friday, plugged it in a phoned 02. They activated it and added my phone numbers, told me in 4 hours it should be working!! It's monday and not working!!!! I phoned over the weekend to be told that it takes 5 days to activate.. REALLY?... I've been looking online and found that as I'm using virgin super hub I need to set up port forwarding so I've done that and it's still not working!! HELP

A soft reset of the Boostbox may help but as there are so few of these about we don't see a lot of faults and fixes in the forum.

Well I can't find much else on these, you may have to ring O2 Business support on 8002.

Wait for 4 hours appears to be the limit of the advice given.

 

I had a link for support page but it's not reliable and there's nothing there that you don't know.

Boost box is a joke!

My 02 boostbox got delivered 10 days ago and hasnt worked yet!!! Ive probably made 10 calls to 02 i either get cut off or told some nonsense and to ring back in 48 hours!!! I would not bother getting a boostbox its a waste of £150 and the customer service is a joke passing you from pillar to post...

I don't know if you can get a refund on it as normally you would have to send it back within 7 working days, I assume it the same for business customers.

 

Have you tried asking for a replacement as it could be faulty?
