Hi @JPG,

This doesn’t sound good! When did you port the number over to us? It can take up to 48-hours for services to be fully moved across so if it’s within that time, you would be best to wait until then and restart your device a few times in the meantime.


Hi Ryan.  

I gave my PAC on Saturday night. By Tuesday lunch I was able to make call and send texts, and they were showing as my old number ‐ ie port was successful. But ever since then,  I still haven't been able to receive calls or texts. If someone tries to call me the call goes to voicemail and they hear a message from Tesco Mobile (my former provider).

Strangely, I  found today that one person can actually send texts to me and they get through. The rest still can't though. I have been trying to find out what his provider is but he hasn't yet replied.




I have checked,  and the one person who is able to text to this mobile is also on I'd mobile.

Hi @JPG 

In your case, it seems like there could be a problem with the port that our Tech Team need to look into.


Could you reach out to our Social Media Teams either by Facebook or Twitter?  Failing that, email 

We’re limited in numbers currently due to the global pandemic, but we’ll get back to you and everyone else as quickly as we possibly can.]



Hello I have a Samsung A10 phone, upgraded it on 26th or 27th of December 2019, it was working fine until the end of march 2020. I now only can text not make or receive calls it’s a lovely phone when it was working.

It is insured but that’s not the point I have tried 4 times to get in touch with carphonewarehouse they said they would get back to me in 2 days but they never did, very very disappointed.

thankyou Mary.

Hi @white @Poonam Rani @white 

Welcome to the iD Community.

I’m sorry to see this post was not responded to.

Can you please confirm if you’re still facing the same issue?



I have been unable to receive calls from certain numbers, these numbers aren’t blocked and are 07 numbers. Alongside this I haven’t been able to receive texts from them. I was wondering if there is a block issue on IDs behalf as I’ve checked all my settings on my iPhone
