personal details don't match the ones EE have

As requested, I have given my home landline number, my first and last name, my DOB, my email addrress, my bank sort code, the last four digits of my account number - ALL CCRRECT but I still receive the response "Your peronal details don't match the ones we have, please try again". I have had a stroke and need to correspond by email not 'phone. What do i do now?

my email addrress


When it asks you to confirm your contact email addy, it is the contact email addy that was originally registered to your BB a/c that it's asking for as a security check & not the MyEE email addy.

What were you doing when you gave this information? For example were you calling EE? 

 

Please don't say you were replying to some email you received.

 

Thanks

@Northerner: OP was setting up his new MyEE so he can manage his BB a/c, in place of the now withdrawn BB Member's Centre.

@XRaySpeX

 

How do you know that from the OP?

 

The OP doesn't make any reference to MyEE. I hope you are correct as this to me seems very suspicious as that's a lot of personal information.

Re: personal details don't match the ones EE have

I have tried using my original email address, which was my current email address plus '.freeserve.' in the middle. I have also tried used my Billing Account Number instead of my landline number. Incidentally, the note to landline number says the number is either 9 or 10 digits including an 0! Mine and most others contain 11 digits including 0. None of these alternatives work and I need to solve this by email as I cannot talk easily on the 'phone following my stroke.

 

By the way, I have been with EE and its precedecessors since Freeserve started about 20 years ago but, unless this is solved quickly, I may change Broadband supplier.

Re: personal details don't match the ones EE have

'.freeserve.co.uk' I hope.

 

Have you kept any emails that EE sent you, say for the Orange email closure, to check the contact email addy EE had for you?

 

Don't worry about the length of the phone no. It does accept the normal 11 digits.

Re: personal details don't match the ones EE have

Thank you but 'freeserve.' only was added. 'co.uk' was already there. Can I resolve this with EE by email as I cannot cope with the telephone following my stroke? All the information I have given them has been double checked and I am sure they have these details on file.

Re: personal details don't match the ones EE have

That doesn't help, I am afraid, as all answers assume either that I have a mobile phone or that I know what number to call. All I want to do is to look at my account which I haven't been able to do from mid-December. The site for re-registering for Home Broadband does not recognize my personal details, which have not changed. I have had the account since Freeserve started! I have had a serious stroke and do need to have some advice from someone who knows what to do. Please help.

Doesn't it highlight which field it objects to?

Re: personal details don't match the ones EE have

No! It just says personal details don't match their records. I am now waiting on 0800 079 8586 for how to cancel my contract after 20 odd years! There is a defect on the 020 7362 0200 number

Re: personal details don't match the ones EE have

At last i have got through and find that there is a known problem their end. All my personal details were correct and they had them all. What a complete shambles and waste of time! I am VERY unimpressed and will not be be singing EE's praises to anyone although the chap who reconnected me was sympathetic
