3. Escalation procedures
Our dedicated Customer Care Team are in place to deal with any of your queries but if you are not happy with the Customer Care Executive or the way in which they handle your complaint you can ask to have the matter escalated to their manager. The manager will discuss the issue with you and try to reach a satisfactory resolution. If, having contacted the manager you feel that we have still not dealt with your complaint satisfactorily, you can ask for the matter to be reviewed by the Head of Customer Care. Once you are happy with the resolution of your complaint, the complaint will be closed on the complaint handling system. If your complaint is not resolved within 10 working days from when you first logged it, you can escalate your complaint to ComReg by contacting them on the details below.
4. Disconnection policy
Your Imagine bill must be paid on or before the date specified on the bill. If you don’t pay your bill when it’s due, we will try to contact you by text message or email or telephone call and letter to remind you that your bill is overdue. Please make sure you keep your contact details with us up to date, to make sure you receive all messages.
If we don’t receive a payment, we may restrict your ability to make calls and to use your broadband connection. We will write to you to confirm this and to advise you of the timeframes and next steps in the process. If your line is restricted you will still be able to contact the emergency services via 112 or 999.
If we still don’t receive a payment, we may restrict your incoming calls.
Finally, if the amount remains unpaid after the time specified in each letter, your account will be fully disconnected, resulting in the loss of your telephone number and broadband service. Your final invoice will be sent to a third party debt collection agency.
