Re: Porting number is not being updated for iMessage

It confirmed today. 
I’ve tried every step. I can’t even change my number manually in settings.

Re: Porting number is not being updated for iMessage

Thank you @AccioNox
 

If you search "my number" in your settings it should let you update this here.

 

Are you getting an error message when trying to do this?

 

If you then go to iMessage it will show what numbers / emails can receive imessages so you can un tick any incorrect ones.

 

Please pop back to us when you can.

Re: Porting number is not being updated for iMessage

Hi

I've tried re-entering my number again and again. It shows no error but just the temporary number.

Re: Porting number is not being updated for iMessage

Okay thank you.

 

As the port only happened today, I would advise to wait 24hours, turn the phone off and on again and then try to change the number again.

 

Please pop back to us here to let us know if you are then still unable to change this.

 

I am sorry for any inconvenience that may be caused in the meantime.

Re: Porting number is not being updated for iMessage

Some of us on another forum have sussed this (It's not confined to Virgin) It seems when a number is overridden on a SIM card during a PAC iOS carries on using the original number. Sometimes this rights itself after a week or two.

Inserting a blank SIM which is then programmed with the new number and it works first time!

Re: Porting number is not being updated for iMessage

H

I can, but any iMessage and FaceTime use my ID not my number. 

I have tried resetting several times. Nothing is working.
