Shut off the phone, pull out the SIM and restart it. This will give you an error of course.

Shut off the phone again, re-insert the SIM and restart. You connection should now be completely reset.

Try sending yourself a text. If you receive it successfully, you're good to go.

If not, you will have to contact customer support. During the busy post-holiday season, it's easier to use Facebook on-line.

It can also take overnight for the system to update all the carriers about the number change. Be patient.
