Porting my number from TalkTalk

I just joined Virgin, when I sign up the services I ask to keep my old Talk Talk number.

Today was my installation day and when I checked my account I have a new phone number.

Tried to contact customers services via phone unuseful, can someone help me with this.

Talk Talk said Virgin have to contact them to inform them they taking over the number.

Re: Porting my number from TalkTalk

Hello

Once you VM line has been activated the number port can take upto 10 days to complete, you will always have a temporary number until TalkTalk complete the port, as long as the line is active and doesn't have a cancellation order on it, this follows the rules from Ofcom.

Re: Porting my number from TalkTalk

Hi Sabina374,

 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the community 🙂

 

As our community have advised, we'd need to make sure that the line is still active with TalkTalk and that there is no cancellation booked on there.

 

Can you please let me know that this is the case and I can help you further if needed?


Thank you,


Melissa
