How do I find my Virgin Mobile account online? (without calling them)
How do I find my Virgin Mobile account number is a popular page on my blog. It details how to get your account number from VM, unfortunately it requires calling them on the phone.
Fortunately, astute reader Peter submitted a very nice tip for getting the account number online without calling Virgin Mobile!
Here is his complete tip:
If you don’t want to bother calling them, there is another way to get your account number!
I found this on another forum:
It’s also accessible from within the session cookies. If you’re using Chrome, you can do the following:
1.) Right-click the page;
2.) Select ‘Inspect Element’;
3.) Click the ‘Resources’ tab;
4.) Expand the ‘Cookies’ group;
5.) Select ‘www2.virginmobileusa.com’, and;
6.) Check the list that appears in the right pane for the Name ‘ban’. The nine digit number you see assigned in the Value column next to that Name is your account number.
7.) Tell everyone you know that Virgin Mobile is aware of this issue and still chooses to make it unnecessarily difficult for their paying customers to obtain their account numbers. Confound Virgin Mobile USA’s plans, and a pox on their houses.
Thanks Peter! 🙂
