Porting number is not being updated for iMessage

Hi There, 

I was using lyca and last month switched to virgin keeping my old number but unfortunately I won’t able to retain my number for iMessage or iCloud. On my device the mobile number says different. 

I’ve tried to reach customer support couple of times but no luck. Can you please help me with this.

 

Thanks,

Re: Porting number is not being updated for iMessage

This solves some problems

Sign out of your Apple ID

Switch your phone off and then on again

Resign in to your Apple ID

Re: Porting number is not being updated for iMessage

No it didn’t work. I’m tired of doing this. The number showing in attached screenshot is not mine. This is the temporary number which virgin media has given me and I was told it will be automatically done or you can manually change your number in phone (my number) but this is not working. I just don’t want to use this number and want to keep/ use my old number which I’m using since 2016.

Seems a common problem not unique to Virgin 

Got this from Giffgaff

Are you able to go into the settings, then phone and then manually edit the number at the top of the screen.

Re: Porting number is not being updated for iMessage

When you save it, does the number revert I'm guessing? 

Is this the same with any calls made or just iMessage affected?
