Hi @JaneArcherBodkin,

 

In the “My Number” settings of your iPhone, please make sure it displays the number you’ve ported in. I suspect it will currently be displaying the original number that came with our SIM card. If you change this number to reflect the one you’ve ported over, I believe that’ll fix it.

Hello @Nicolamoorhead,

 

Have you tried the following steps:

 

1)    Turn off iMessage (Settings > Messages)
2)    Restart your phone (by pressing and holding the on/off button)
3)    Tap Settings > Phone > My Number and confirm that it is correct. 
4)    If it is not correct, please enter the correct number
5)    Turn iMessage back to On (Settings > Messages)
6)    Finally, go to Settings > Messages > Send & Receive and see if the correct number is displayed under “Start new conversations from:”.

Hi Mohammed,

I have done all of this and it still isn’t working. I seem to be able to receive a text message but can’t reply, it always says message failed to send
