OK, I managed to get on to Live Chat before they close for the weekend at 6pm. The lady set up a new online account for me and said that would fix the issues.
At this point I had three accounts:
1 - Set up years ago and persisted with the "Upgrade to online billing" page
2 - Set up 2 days ago and talks about a technical error after logging in
3 - Set up just now by the customer service operative
I told her that I set up a new online account two days ago and that did not sort out the problem. I believe this then prompted her to delete accounts 1 and 2 from the system.
The new account, account 3 is now showing the same message that I got when I set up account 2, two days ago:
You'll be able to view billing details for this account within 48 hours.
If you can't see them after 48 hours, please use a different log-in or create a new profile.
I hope (and pray?!) that account 3 will allow me to view my accounts again. This whole affair has been tedious in the extreme.
Sorry but I'm not convinced that opening a new account profile is the best thing to do while problems exist with the system.I would have thought the more profiles you have with the same account number and personal information linked to it the more it's going to confuse the system, It's interesting that you had another profile from years ago, it could be part of the present problem.
I know it's frustrating but I'm sure they will fix the problem if we just be patient.

I'm sure lots of people have profiles that are a few years old, BT have been offering online billing for a long time now. For some reason, after working fine for years, it broke after the recent website/billing "upgrade". The second account which was 2 days old was an attempt to get back into the billing system. Both have now been deleted by BT CS.
The third account created a few hours ago at least takes me into the "Welcome to your account" screen, albeit with a message saying to wait up to 48 hours for any data.

I'm unable to confirm whether my account is now working, as the new account set up for me 19 hours ago is still showing the "Please wait 48 hours" message. Hopefully once this message clears I will regain access.
Many thanks Paddy,
I've checked my account and everything is now working as it should.
Thanks again and please pass my thanks on to Jim and his team for their hard work and dilligence over the past few weeks.
