I think "device not recognised" is an issue separate from having the Boost. What device is it and have you tried resetting it and/or uninstalling and reinstalling the appropriate app and signing in again?

It was reported as ‘account not recognised’, not ‘device’.

@Chriscc 

This being so, I suspect that you are correctly logged in on one device, but are using wrong account details when trying to sign in on the other two.

Go to Settings/My Account on your ‘home’ device and look to see what the account name shown there is.

Is that the account information you are inputting on the other two devices? If not, try again with what you now know your account name to be.

Set a Payment PIN on your account so that no-one but you can buy memberships on it. Check your bank accounts monthly for any other unexpected payments to Now. That way you can at least nip them in the bud, while you and Now figure out whose fault they are.

Quite right, simply slack typing on my part. And that is what I was driving at.

Yes indeed, it doesn’t sound at all like a Boost problem.

But hardware, software, wetware - together we have all the bases covered 😛

What do you mean by home device?

FYI that I do not work for NOW, just a NOW customer trying to help
