Cannot log into MyO2

Hi,

 

I've recently joined O2 from Virgin Mobile. I previously had a ultimate oomph package with Virgin Media with a Virgin Mobile sim but recently upgraded to a Ultimate Volt Bundle. As part of this, Virgin Media transferred my sim card over to O2. 

 

When Virgin Media set up the O2 account for me they used the wrong email address to create the account. I called O2 support and they have successfully changed the email address to the correct one. I now receive emails from O2 about bills etc. 

 

I have however never been able to log into MyO2. When I try to log into MyO2 via the app on my iPhone, it detects an the incorrect email address. I click "use another account" and use the log in details for MyO2 account but get an error message (attached)

When I try to log in on via the O2 website, it initially works. I can see a page with my allowances etc. However, when I try to click through to view a bill it takes me back to a sign in page. When I sign in it displays an error message saying and says "click here to resolve".

 

When I click through this it takes me to a new MyO2 page which says "You don't have any products or services in this My O2 account" I try and add products and services using my mobile number but it says this O2 account is already associated with a MyO2 account.

 

I have phoned O2 Customer Service a number of times to resolve this issue and each time the customer service assistant says this is done, but it hasn't been resolved. Apparently on their systems the correct email address is being used. Not sure where I can turn for help? It seems my number is still registered to the incorrect email address (which I don't have access to).

@George1944 

As you have contacted O2 on numerous occasions, it's pointless asking you to get in touch again.

I'll ask one of our account advisors to look at this for you but they won't be on until Monday at 8am.

@O2Lisaare you able to help @George1944 please?

No problem. You will need to come back to this thread on Monday morning. @O2Lisa will want some information from you via private message, so you need to be ready to respond to her.

Best of luck. Hope it gets sorted for you on Monday. 👍

It does sound like O2 need to tweak something in your account on their side, as  @Cleoriff says above.  One other thing you could try, in the meantime @George1944, is to see if your browser's "Incognito mode" will let you log-in - MyO2's website is particularly sensitive to cookies, especially if you have logged in to the Community first and then go to myo2.co.uk website and try and view your bill (for example):

At this point, I'll sign-out of the community, sign out of o2.co.uk, seek-and-destroy all cookies containing o2.co.uk, restart the browser, and try again, starting with log-in to o2.co.uk *first*... 

So I actually have a second browser on my mobile that I use just for MyO2, as switching to "Incognito Mode" on my normal browser, whilst letting me into o2.co.uk, does tend to get in the way of screenshotting anything I need to keep (yeah, true incognito, Smiley's People stuff!).

Good luck, @George1944
