So, I switched to Virgin when I started a new phone contract some months ago. They asked if I wanted to keep my number and I said yes. They then gave me a temporary new number until the switch was complete. Then I started being able to receive calls and texts from both the number they gave me and my old number I had agreed to keep. Someone now has my phone number I have had for years!!! So many texts from my partner, friends and parents go to him and it’s a huge violation! Has anyone else had this problem.. I didn’t know it could even happen having 1 number across 2 devises on separate contracts.
Hello, yes I moved from Vodafone and was offered to keep my number. I still hve the number and receive calls and texts on it.. but someone else got given that number by virgin and receives some of the texts that are meant for me.. and for example if I try to call my own number, I get through to him.
