Not receiving any calls or texts

Just joined

Hi, I am having many issues with Virgin right now and need resolution ASAP.

1. After switching from EE to Virgin and porting my phone number, I have not been able to receive any Phone calls or Texts. I have contacted support many times and this has been unhelpful so far.

I can receive calls from other Virgin users, but not from numbers outside of the network. Therefore I can't receive verification texts or important phone calls. This issue has been persistent for over 4 weeks. 

2. I am unable to register my Virgin Mobile account. When setting a password it gives me the error message that the password cannot be used.
