Hi @Katherine sorry to hear you're having problems with PowerUp. I was wondering if you'd be interested in testing out some enhancements to the app? We've recently made some updates and fixes, which should hopefully sort out the issue you have been having. If you can let me know if you have an Android or iOS phone I can send you an updated version of the app if you'd be interesting in trying it out?
I am prepared to try whatever is necessary but it is frustrating when the handler of the complaint fails to reach me when they have all the available means to contact me.
What do you propose regarding the app?
Thanks @Katherine that's great! The issue you were having is one that we identified recently and have fixed, however in order to fix this we need to roll out a new updated version of the app. This will be available to all customers within the next week, however what I can do is email this version of the app to you earlier than this to see if it fixes your issue. Would you be interested in that? If so, let me know and I will email a link for you to download the new version of the app.
I have had exactly the same experience as Catherine and I use Apple. There is no continuity when one calls to have the situation rectified. The website goes around in a circle and nothing improves. I have NEVER felt so frustrated by an organization in my life. Power Up is totally ring-fencing from the public the people who have any serious knowledge from so there is no resolution to the problem even after three weeks of effort to get this ridiculous situation sorted. I have been registered with Power Up all that time but to date no further forward in choosing a package. When I get to the package page on the website it tells me their data is not available but will be sorted n 3 to 5 days!!! Three weeks later and no progress despite numerous emails and many phone calls to the ring fence. Unbelievable!
Hi Johnr, maybe I can help? Check you have the latest iOS on your Apple device (11.2.1), download the PowerUp app from the AppStore. Sign into it with your account email and password, follow the steps to register a credit card and you should get to the PowerUp main screen. Then enter your meter readings, after that you can do nothing more for 5 days, so wait. Then the App should have reacted to the meter readings and given you the options for purchasing packages. Sorry if you have done all this but I was not sure what stage you are stuck on. (I had the problem that my account sign-in for the SP web page did not work for PowerUp and I had to ring up and talk to a guy in Warrington about registering a password which was long enough to satisfy the PowerUp requirements.)
I was interested to see you said you get to their website and are told to wait, I suppose you mean the App page? The SP website does not allow any PowerUp work. It is also recommended by SP to uninstall the app and reinstall it before putting in new readings, again though you have to wait 5 days for the readings to take effect.
My experiences have been difficulties setting up the app, and purchasing a new contract when one has expired, apart from that it seems to work alright and gives lots of data about consumption history and forecast. My main reason for sticking with it is that it saves money if you buy 6 month contracts.
Feel free to reply and give more details about which stage of the process is letting you down.
Thank you. Your comments are appreciated. I do have the most up to date iOS and I have reinstalled the app five times. I have registered in the app and no problem with password but when it comes to the option to buy packages that is where it falters and puts up the same message. “They are working on the data so will be remedied in 3-5 days. Well watch this space. It is now 24 days since I registered!!!
