Issue porting a number from Public Mobile

NataliiaI

I was porting my number out of Public mobile last night, and I got all the way to replying "yes" to an SMS. My service got deactivated with Public but never activated on the new network. I'm in limbo without being able to do anything with my old number and porting is not going through. What can be done here?

Now the issue is that on their side they see the request to port my number as cancelled and Public Mobile sees it as completed. I’m in a vicious circle

They said it's some system glitch, and they're unable to bring in my old number. and that if they did anything, I'd need to have access to my old number. which is not possible at this point

So did you reply Yes? Once you port out your account is closed. What did your new carrier say? Is it a problem on their end?
