Hello, I recently moved from Vodafone to Virgin Mobile earlier this year, new phone is amazing and sim works with nearly all my texts, but some of my received text messages are going to my old phone still.
I transferred my number over to Virgin Mobile and had no issues apart from this, but it is only some texts that are not receiving and cannot figure out why, the ones that show on my old phone Galaxy S7 are never shown on my Huawei P40 Pro, can't miss these texts as they are already causing problems between me and my friend, any help please?
My Huawei is using messenger application, receive texts from other people to that no problem at all, on the S7 it is using text messaging, but like you said should be deactivated, I have deleted all contacts from it now and will see what happens, only happens to this one text contact for some reason, i'm baffled.
My contact messaged me this morning and even though I have deleted all contacts she still managed to send a text to my old phone, i'm baffled, so I am having to carry 2 phones around with me, also considering I have no contract anymore on this old phone sim, how am I able to send a text also, might reset the whole phone back to factory settings, see what happens.
Still have old SIM in S7, if so, is it saying you are connected to the Vodafone network still?, If it is and did not deactivate, it sounds like your stuck with a split port which Virgin need to sort out.
If old SIM is deactivated, it is as @apcyberax say's - they are not true texts and are being sent by some app over WiFi.

Have reset old phone back to factory settings, and the next message made it to my new phone this time, so maybe your both right and it was using wifi to send messages ect. never thought it would do that if a sim was deactivated, which it was, the old phone had emergency calls only activated, so fingers crossed it has been sorted, thanks for the advice 🙂
