Hi. I made the same mistake.

I’ve just sent a letter informing them of the error but would be good if I can reach them ASAP. What was the contact detail you used to get in touch with U.K. V&I to change the visa type? I tried calling their standard number online and they were not very helpful, quoting scripted mumbo-jumbo.

Unless the reason why you were told that they changed the visa type was because it had already been done when you received the email for the IHS payment?

it was changed in the office, then we had the IHS charge come through, and the visa came through very quickly after that

I agree, however she got the visa and it states spouse on it, now she is in the UK, and a good end until July 2020

That's great. Really happy for you. Hope in my case, common sense also prevails and they change the settlement type and send the IHS charge through your our application as well.

Quick question. Was your application priority or non-priority?

That was a pretty quick turnaround considering how application processing has been significantly delayed for a lot of people.

i found the right contact and was given the direct contact details of the ECO instead of the standard mailbox.

Surprised you were able to get the details of the ECO. Was he/she reviewing the application from Sheffield?

Ok does that mean you contacted the ECO directly to change the category type from marriage to spouse or was that already done before you contacted the ECO?

My nervousness is that my wife gets rejected due to an error in her application that can easily be corrected but the ECO processing her application is unable to use common sense to resolve the error.

Just thought to update on my situation just in case someone else comes across this thread looking for answers to the same problem. My wife today got an email from the Sheffield office with the IHS link asking her to make the IHS payment. We’ve made the payment now so fingers crossed we get a decision soon.
