Pull out the sim and turn off the phone for a few mins and then try again

SMS is usually the last to "toe the line", Dolly. If Dennis' recommendation does not work right away, I'd just wait a few hours and try again 🙂 Might take up to 24 hours in some cases but it'll get there 😃
Thanks for responding Dennis, trying that right now
nope, that did not work, still ringing on the old phone

I would wait the 24 hours that Sophia suggested. If it still doesnt work at that point, then I would call Koodo *611 on your koodo cell (it's a free call) and see if they can find the issue with the port
Thanks Sophia and Dennis for your help, guess I will have to wait it out, just anxious to get it up and running

Oh yes, I know the feeling 🙂 It's a bit like setting up a new website, it takes a while for the DNS to propagate throughout the entire Internet... the wait is not funny! Not sure how it works with phone number ports but I would imagine it might be a similar process 🙂 Worth a try: do the same with your old phone/sim card and see if that somehow speeds up the "releasing process"..... it's a long shot but might work!
