Re: Recieving old carrier messages

Sounds like your number is still on the O2 mailing list. Not sure how you would stop them

I get a message from Orange about once a year asking me to upgrade. I left them 8 years ago and the number has been with 3 different carriers since then.

Re: Recieving old carrier messages

Numbers still remain allocated to the original provider that OFCOM allocated them too, no matter how many times a customer ports them. Eg, if your number was originally allocated to Orange, anyone calling you will be charged for a call to an Orange phone, no matter who your current provider is.
