How can I check whether my number/sim is transferred successfully?

The activation portal only says alternate number in case if something goes wrong. 

Do I just call my number and if its not working on my old sim, that means it works with the public mobile sim?

@mchuahua If your old sim stops working that means you number was ported over.

Another way to confirm your port.  Call your number from another phone, if your PM SIM answer the call.  Your port is completed.

Looks like your question was asked and answered in about 5 minutes. That's faster than dialling a call center and talking to someone in new delhi with limited english skills. (Not dissing new delhi at all)

No, of course not, but "limited English skills" SHOULD be dissed, ESPECIALLY when that customer service is to service predominantly English speaking customers. 🙄  I know it's the almighty dollar that drives such things, but if companies are doing that sort of thing, they really need to make sure their CSRs can be understood.

Agreed. You're right about the almighty dollar...but I don't think it would cost that much more to have the call centers located in Canada somewhere...although understanding newfy talk can be challenging as well. !!  Smiley LOL
