I have been trying since 28 September to get 02 to sort out problem with i phone 5SE, now they won't even reply, CEO is ignoring signed for recorded delivery letters, problem is phone cannot send text messages, nor receive MMS from android phones. Just sends via e mail or I message, visited local store 4 times, other store as well , apple confirm phone is fine, works properly with 3 sim, but not 02 sim, had phone checked by independent store says the problem is 02 network and the particular phone number, can't transfer away because PAC code will not recognise number, so can't use phone or get bank payment caodes as they should come via text MMS

So, if you put your SIM into another phone does it then send SMS? If it does then its not a SIM or network problem.

Have you also  tried a network reset on the iPhone.

This is not O2 and we are all customers here similar to yourself and cannot answer account type queries.

@bashthedog I'm not quite sure why you should be receiving anything via MMS, as it's a really outdated method, but if that's the case, mobile data needs to be enabled on your phone. Is your mobile data turned on?

I DO NOT WORK FOR O2

If messages are being sent via email and imessage then there is a problem with the set up

Sign out of your Apple account and set the phone up again

Bank notifications come via text not mms

@bashthedog 

What changed on the 28th September??

 

What iPhone is it? and how do you mean stripped do you mean factory reset??

 

Did the number in the iPhone get ported from another network at all?? Can the phone make and receive phone calls at all? can you use Mobile Data??

 

 

Have you followed these to be able to receive MMS?

  1. Open the Control Center and turn on "Cellular Data" if it isn't already.
  2. Open "Settings" → "Messages" → toggle on "MMS Messaging" and "Group Messaging".
  3. If MMS isn't working, update your iPhone, reset your Network Settings, or contact your carrier.

Thank you for the reply, on 28 September I tried to MMS photos to the phone from my android phone, my phone showed 'message not set,service not activated  on the network'so I checked my android phone and cut a long story short it was fine, then contacted 02 and since then hav eon going saga wher the i phone has been cleared(stripped) an dreset to factory settings in an Apple store,nobody at 02 on line has been able to help, staff in 02 hav etried resetting all the 02 settings,and we are at a stage where nobody can tell us waht is wrong or fix it, we can get a PAC code to leave but can't be sure it will work as we have been told the problem is something to do with the 02 network and the particular number, been with 02 for number of years so no recent changes, been SIM only since May 23 when the i phone was bought from the Apple store, really disappointed in the lack of support from 02, even wrote to CEO but just ignored us.

You state that you have written to the CEO of O2 via recorded delivery, but it not clear to me whether you have actually gone through O2's formal complaints' process :-

 

How to Complain | Help | O2

https://www.o2.co.uk/documents/456036/4246828/Customer+Complaints+code+250523.pdf

 

I suggest that you consider complaining and that you send a copy of your letter to the CEO as part of your submission.
