My wife chose a contract with Virgin about 2 months ago now and is having a very frustrating time with what I believe is called a porting issue. She went through the process of retaining her old Vodaphone number but she now seems to be stuck in limbo between the two numbers. She can only receive calls and texts to her new Virgin number and is unable to access most of her useful apps like banking.
She has been on the phone several frustrating and time consuming times where the operative has no idea how to help and will not believe that this issue can happen. I have seen a few posts on this forum that are concerning a very similar problem. Can anyone with some real technical knowledge please help us out?
This is absolutely heartbreaking as she is banging her head against a brick wall as far as the lengthy and infuriating telephone calls go and with our 3 year old kid she does not have the time and patience to keep dealing with these constant dead ends. She is completely fed up with the phone and the service and has been reduced to tears of frustration over it.
Thank you for reaching out to us in our community and welcome, we are sorry to hear your wife is having problems since porting out to us, can you confirm your Wife can make and receive calls and texts, is here number showing when she makes calls?
Hi Paul and thanks for your response. She is having to use the number given to her by virgin but the process of transferring her old number seemed to go fine. The phone half thinks it is on both numbers. Because or this she can't access some of her useful apps like signal or mobile banking. Is this familiar sounding?
Hi Ash thanks for responding. It is an iphone 12 mini.
we have tried to change the number in settings but it makes no difference. We can't sign into tge Apple ID either because it sends her verification code to her old number. The one that should gave been transferred over to the new phone/ sim.
