Problem porting my old number

I recently switched from prepay to bill pay and was given a new sim with my new phone and I was told I had to port my old number. I followed all the steps but it seems that the port has only half worked. When I text/call people it comes from my old number which is what I want but when they text me it comes to my old phone. Does anyone know why this is happening? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Problem porting my old number

I have a similar but not exactly the same issue in that I recently ended my Three contract due to changes to my contract with which I didn't agree. However, I wish to keep my old number (which was from an O2, and hence now Three, account). If I now move my account to a prepay SIM card can I get back my original number?

Thanks.

Hi ciaoster,

 

You'll be able to keep your number if you move to Prepay, we can switch the number over for you 👌​​​​​​​

Hi Three_Joolz

So can I just say this in the 3Shop? Or must it be done online? If in the 3Shop, should I bring my old account number?

Thanks.

Dave.
