How do I cancel my mum's contract - she has terminal cancer.

My mother has terminal brain cancer, and is now unable to use her phone ever again.  We need to cancel her EE payments.  She is already out of contract, but we have been told by the person who answered on 150 (Brian - on Wednesday 4th January - he sounded Scottish) that he can not access her account, and therefore can not cancel the account or stop the payments without a password/number which we do not have and my mother will not be able to recall now.  He even said to my father who called him yesterday that if the DD payments were stopped, the debt collectors would become involved.


Please advise how we can get this sorted out urgently.

Thank you.

My sympathies. 


How utterly insensitive of Brian. He should be sacked immediately.
