I recently took out a new contract with ID and switched from my old provider using a PAC. I have received confirmation that my phone number has switched now from ID and my old provider has confirmed they've cancelled my services but it hasn't changed over yet. I have tried restarting my phone. 

 

How long should this take?

Hi @Liam Goodge,

Welcome to the Community!

Did your port complete successfully?

You may need to restart the handset for it to start working.

If you have any issues, please give us a shout and we can take a closer look into it.

Hi Kash, 

It's transferred over properly now. I think there was just a small delay after I received confirmation yesterday.

Thank you for your reply.

Hi, I’m experiencing this same issue, my number appeared to switch over almost instantly and I was receiving texts to my old number on my new phone and I got the successful text message from ID saying it’s all completed on Tuesday, it’s now Saturday and in the phone settings, it’s still the ID phone number rather than my number and my iMessages aren’t working! 
Please help!

Hi @Charis Fay 

 

I’d recommend trying the following;

 

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:"

 

If you are having issues with step 4 please reset network settings and try again.

 

Settings > General > Transfer or Reset [Device] > Reset > Reset Network Settings.

I have had a similar issue, when I call someone it has kept my original number but when I text it has given me a new number. 
 

has anyone else had this issue?

Hi @Amy Bissell,

Welcome to the Community!

Which make and model handset are you using?

I would advise checking the number in your phone and message settings to see if the correct one is displayed.

Same problem here - switched to ID and gave PAC code, but only able to use the ID phone number. Why has my number no transferred? I have done all the hard reset, network resets etc. The I’d app still shows the wrong number despite a message saying my number has been switched.

FYI - after writing here, I had two further emails. One saying the switch was finally complete, and the other saying I had to update my pin (via the app). Once I updated the pin, my old number appeared in the app and everything seems to be okay.
