Hi Talk Talk,
I'm trying to set up my elderly mother's Talk Talk phone account so that I can add Caller ID to her account as am unable to contact you by phone, email or your chat service, none of which are answered or seem to work properly.
I have entered the account number from her latest bill and all of her details using this link from your website https://myaccount.talktalk.co.uk/register/register-new/identify. When I enter her details from the bill your provide, your website then states "VERIFY YOUR IDENTITY" followed by "Unfortunately, we are unable to proceed further due to insufficient information on the account. Please contact us for help."
If I then click on the contact us link I am unable to call, email or chat to you as these services either don't work or are unavailable. Therefore we come full circle to this post in this forum which seems to be my only way of contacting a national ISP which to be honest is extremely poor customer service.
Could somebody please help me to set up my mothers online account as I want to add Caller ID to help reduce nuisance callers and scammers. I currently have no way of contacting you and I am completely at a loss as how to proceed with this as your website just goes round in circles and provides no other contact details? Any help would be gratefully received?
You may also want to change the wording on your bills which mentions "Register quickly and easily at talktalk.co.uk/myaccount" which in my experience of the last hour or so, it really isn't. God only knows how my mother would be expected to manage this without someone's help.

Hi OCE Arne
Yes to both of those. I haven't been able to set it up though as i can't register online. I can add the account number as i have the information that my mum gave me. she doesn't have a mobile but i usually use mine for these sort of things as she wouldn't know how do it it unfortunately.
i'll add my mum's account number now.

Thanks for you post. Sorry that you are having trouble
The error message that you are seeing is usually because there is no Mobile number connected to the account, which is required to send the verification SMS. Does she have a mobile?
Do you have power of attorney over the account? or are you a nominated user? if so I can help, Just add you Mums account number to you community profile.
