Why doesnt my transferred number show up on i message ? It only shows my original sim telephone number!

When i send an i message the sender number (me) only shows up the original virgin number not my transferred number which i brought from another network.

Any ideas?

Hi Abelatter1, 

 

Welcome to our community forums! 

 

I am sorry you're having problems with your number. Have you managed to get this resolved since your post?

 

If not can you please on your handset go to Settings>Phone>My Number, there you should be able to view your number if it's not showing the correct one you can update it. 

 

Please let us know how you get on, 

 

Thanks,

Hi thanks for replying! 

I went into the phone settings and yes it was showing the telephone number that Virgin provided

I have now changed this but for some reason when my son sends a text now it comes up as facetime name.

Rather than the programmed name in my contacts.

Hi Abelatter1,

 

Have you been able to see if starting a new messaging conversation results in the same issue? Are the messages SMS messages or iMessages?

 

Thanks,

Tom_S
