I changed my phone number on self-serve yesterday. My number on self-serve is my new number, but my phone still uses my old number.

How long does it usually take...? This is a little ridiculous.

Power down your phone and if possible remove the battery and sim card,

Replace both and restart your device.

Did that work?

It has not but I haven't contacted customer service yet, I've been very busy today with other really important things.

I got a new "Welcome to Koodo!" email, but nothing on my actual phone changed.

What your phone thinks your number is does NOT matter.
As long as people can call/text you using the new number, and your new number shows up when you call/text them, it's all good.

When I text my old number I get a text from my old number, so I assume I still have my old number.

Yeah, get voicemail. When I call "my" new number it says it is out of service.

It's time to call Koodo customer service then.
