    Problems logging on to Nationwide Internet banking tonight 8th Nov 07 at 9:56 PM
    Anybody else having problems logging on to Nationwide tonight ?

    I have entered my number several times but it keeps telling me it is the incorrect number.

    My wife has done the same with her account and can't log on.

    We have phoned the help line but calls are not getting through.

    There is no message on the internet site to say that there is an error, but when we try to sign on, the details are not accepted.

    We have checked the site for for plishing etc and checked the security icon. all is OK.

    Is there a network problem ?

    Looks like problems. I didn't even get the chance to put in my number but got this message.

    The Nationwide website is currently unavailable - normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.
    We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause.

    Yes, The message is there now.

    For a couple of hours it wasn't.

    I did worry a little at first, checked the URL's, checked the security icon etc etc just in case.

    Perhaps the phone line problem was the callers trying to get though with the same problem.

    The main website now describes the status as “Internet Bank Fault”. As it probably won’t last much longer and because I particular like the emoticon in the image that accompanies the text that LittleVoice has already told you about, I shall add a screenshot.

    Looks like I was right about their "think tank" who thought up their new "security" questions having an average age around 5...

    The main worry is that the site simply gives out a false indication when this happens. (And it has happened before, a few times) They don't have the means of advising someone trying to log in when they have, in fact, input their details correctly, but it is the system which is not working. As you only get three attempts normally - so would you carry on a second (or third) time in those circumstances?

    Nationwide has just written to me saying that their Telephone Self Service facility has been improved and now allows you to request a transfer from e savings into flexaccount (and from flexaccount you have complete access tou your bills payments/ internal transfers.)

    I've checked with Nationwide and they say (not with 100% confidence) that, 'yes', you can transfer out of e savings now.

    When you register they allocate you a passnumber and ask you for selected digits from this and you use your existing customer number to identify yourself.

    According to Saynoto0870 their geographical number is 01793 758666 (but there is no freephone number for this)

    As of 8 November, on line at least, it was not possible to transfer from eSavings to anything other than to Flex.

    I tried transferring from eSavings to the Regular Saver because the Regular Saver appeared in the drop-down list having eSavings for the "from" account in quick transfer mode. But when clicking to effect the transfer, I got the message that it could not be done.

    Am thoroughly fed up with Nationwide Internet banking. My wife and I have had the same issue repeatedly over the past week or so. Fortunately they hadn't locked me out because I'd tried a lot of times. What's crazy is about one in fifteen times it does work. And yet when you try again with the same data it fails.

    I phoned them one day and they were no help (apparently the technical team had left 3 minutes earlier). I then called them at the weekend and was told that it was me entering my details wrong. I asked to be put through to the technical department because I knew that it wasn't our error and the guy tried to connect us but eventually gave up because their lines were so busy. He insisted that we were doing it wrong (even though we'd been doing it fine for the previous five years) and that we should reset our memorable data. My wife did this, we got the letter through today and surprise surprise - it didn't work. I just called them again and the woman told us it was because we must have keyed it in wrong. We tried it one last time and it did log us in but I don't hold out any hope it will work again in future.

    It's not as if I'm not very computer-savvy by the way, I'm a web developer and spend my life doing this kind of thing.

    Microsoft support is terrible. You can't just email them, you have to go through a long winded support form, but then after you have explained the problem, an error page appears! I can't see anyway to get support for the support form! what a joke.

    ah so it's not just me.

    I had a blazing row with them over this about 10-14 days ago - exact same issue.

    Got on one day and couple of days later using exact same details I was told I was using wrong memorable data.

    they made me re register for the service.

    I was highly unamused.

    I'm having this problem also, stopped working after years trouble free! I tried re-entering all the details into Money but it still won't work. I wonder if it's anything to do with their "security upgrade" or just a glitch. :confused:

    Guys and girls, if you have problems with Nationwide online services send a written complaint to member services and put your occupation in the letter to illustrate you are technically minded.

    Member Service,
    Nationwide Building Society,
    Kings Park Road,
    Moulton Park,
    Northampton
    NN3 6NW.

    Nationwide always say they don't get complaints about things but that's because only a few people bother writing in to member services so the complaints are not registered as complaints but "suggestions".

    For future reference,Nationwide have a Microsoft Money section under messaging. They haven't got back to me yet and it seems to have sorted itself.

    Been using Nationwide online for a couple of years, I only check it about once a month, but cannot seem to log into my account tonight, tried about 20 times and it keeps coming up with 'you have entered your details incorrectly - Please try again' but it does not lock me out after even 20 attempts!!

    Do I need to re-register now?

    My friend is having the same problem with her Royal Bank Of Scotland Account as well.

    There have also been intermittent problems with Nationwide accounts updating in Microsoft Money. But, given the fact that Nationwide is the only UK banking institution that has daily updates with Microsoft Money and Microsoft Money is no longer available in a UK version, I suspect that this facility from Nationwide may soon be dropped anyway.
