Old number hasn't transferred to iD SIM?

Hi all, A few weeks ago I went through the process of transferring my number from my old SIM (on EE) to my new iD one, by entering its PAC code in My Account as suggested. I can see that my old number is now displaying in My Account, though my iD SIM doesn't seem to have picked up that old number as I would have expected it to. Only just realised today! Any suggestions on how to rectify this gratefully received. Best wishes, Ben

Ooh has anyone got an answer to this my newly ported number is coming up as ID number even though I’ve had confirmation that porting was successful ...

Hi @Ben Dunn,

When you mention that the iD SIM is not picking up on the old number, what do you mean exactly; are your calls & texts outgoing from the ported number or the new iD number?

Hi there I also have this issue. I entered the PAC code and got a confirmation 36 hours later to say that the number had transferred- I clicked to confirm that I wanted to keep my old number, but now only my ID mobile number is showing on outgoing calls and texts. Though I am receiving calls and texts to my old number ( the one I want to keep ). I can’t find a solution from the discussion thread above please help!!

Hi Kate0309, it sounds like your port may be split if you are effectively using 2 numbers.

Can you please email us on communitysupport@idmobile.co.uk so we can help get this sorted for you.

We'd recommend you restart your phone and test using the SIM in a different phone if possible first to confirm the situation.
Sending a text to yourself is a good thing to test but if you are using an iPhone, use normal SMS instead of iMessage as that can further complicate things if the wrong number is set up..
