An issue with connectivity or a problem from porting?

I ported my number a week ago from speakout, and as far as I know that is complete. I can call out and receive texts. My problem is, after I leave my phone for an extended period, I can not sent out any texts, and any texts I receive take a day to show up. Calls seem to not make it through either.

So far, the only fix I have found is to restart my phone. But that is already starting to run my nerves dry, as I need my phone for work purposes and can't afford to second guess if i can receive text and calls or not. I don't know if this is an issue with porting that's been hanging around me, or another problem all together. It didn't do this before. And keep in mind, I had this phone on Koodo a year ago, and with no problem. I have not changed anything on the phone since then either. 

My phone is a Samsung Galaxy core LTE, I'm using the prepaid 15 base plan, and yes I have an booster on it. I hope this is enough information, and that this issue can get resolved.

It sounds like there's something wrong with your phone you may want to try your sim card in another phone and see if it still has the issue

Did the phone do a factory reset it's self when you installed the new koodo SIM Card in it? If it didn't then try performing one... Make sure to back everything up first before performing a factory reset. After the factory reset set the phone up as a new phone at first.
