Sometimes number changes take awhile to complete. Usually within 30 minutes.

Was this a port in? A landline transfer? After 30 minutes has passed, reset your network settings and it should work.

Put your phone in airplane mode for 15-30 seconds in the settings. After take it off airplane mode and your # will take effect right away. Keep in your mind your voicemail would have to be set up again. I hope this helps and golden gloves!

Also: disable imessage and facetime, restart the phone, then enable imessage and facetime again. Without this step the number associated with these two apps tends not to update.
