Issues upgrading to a smart plan

02.04.2021 11:03 #1
Hi - I got the mail telling me my smart meter was now live & last night went to the website as instructed to sign up for a smart plan - logged into my account & followed the steps (including adding my DD details) and got the below error. Tried again this morning & same thing. Called the freephone as advised & got through to Deirdre who seemed a bit confused but did warm transfer me to the smart meter team. Was speaking to Robert who didn't really seem to understand what I was saying but suggested maybe it was caused by my not already being on DD & said he would add the DD to my account. So I gave him my details - there was a few seconds of silence & the call dropped. No callback to myself was attempted.

I have gone back into my online account & I can see the DD details were added but I am still getting the same error when I try to change to a smart plan
