New phone number


I had a temp. Koodo phone number and today switched to my old Bell cell number. But, when I text, the recepients are still receiving the temp. number on their display. How can I change this? No one knows who is texting them !

If you call someone and the temp # comes up on call display then the port just hasn't went through yet, it can take some time to go through after doing the process of porting.
Strange, because the old phone number was ported almost immediately this afternoon while with the Koodo rep at the kiosk.

Texting always takes a bit longer somehow, Mike, I ported a number and everything worked except text! Did you get it sorted now? Might actually take a while, so hang in tight 🙂

Since this is an iPhone it's an easy fix! Turn off iMessage, wait a bit of time (or reboot the phone if you want) and turn it back on. You'll be good to go!
