Luke, read above post and also refer to this link for some of the troubleshooting process I had to undertake. If you tell the techs you've done all those things then they'll have no other idea other than to escalate it.
Also the tech support person that escalated the issue was a lady called 'Ian' employee 539939, if you can somehow talk to her then she may remember the issue I had and be more responsive toward getting it fixed, I found her to be fairly competent.
Thanks for your help. I have had it escalate twice now. First to 'porting support' and now to 'lead technicians'. I have no idea what either group does.
I'm told that both Vodafone and someone from the lead technicians will ring.
I've reported it to the Telecommunications Industry Ombud, so that might help.
It's really up to Vodafone to fix this. I'm not sure what Optus can do other than nag them.
Hi no problem i know how annoying it was when this happened to me so happy to help. Hopefully they'll have it sorted very soon once optus eventually identified the problem they were quite quick to get on to vodafone to get it fixed. Not sure really who is at fault here but seems like vodafone has some issues at their end for sure i changed from telstra to optus so was quite surprised that there was a vodafone issue.
Thanks for your help benny2015. You've done the right thing raising this with our Lead Techs Luke838 and it would usually be resolved within 2 days of them receiving the case. However, it can take longer if we have issues tracking where on the networks the problem is originating.
If you have the fault or PR number available I can check the status of your case and let you know how it's tracking for resolution.
Thanks Luke838 can see the Techs are investigating now. I'll follow up with them tomorrow morning and see how they have gone with this overnight. Meg
I checked in today and they said this should be resolved within the 48hrs that we advised. I not sorted by tomorrow arvo please let us know. Meg
Thanks for the update Luke838. Latest notes on ticket #13881497 is still open and we are liaising with Vodafone to get this sorted. Just awaiting response from Vodafone.
