Ported number not receiving phone calls

I ported my cell phone number the other day, but i cannot receive calls, they go right to voice mail (which I'm also not receiving).  

 

In self-serve i confirmed under plans & addons that my number appears as the ported number, so i'm guessing it went through, but what else can I do?

The self-serve page will show your ported phone number as soon as you make the request.  It is not an indication that your number has been ported over.  The first thing you should check is if that voicemail box that you are hearing is in fact the one that you setup at the old carrier.  If that is the case, your phone number has not yet been transfered.

@NotaModerator, You should contact the moderator team, as there could be a problem with the port.  Are you sure there is no auto forward 9to voicemail) set up on your phone.  Also are you able to receive texts?

Sounds like your port is stuck and I bet if you insert your old SIM you will get all of your Voicemails through that line and it will still be active.  You will need to contact the Moderators by private message and you can do that by clicking on the link in my signature.

I believe this must be the case then, as i'm hearing the old voice mail greeting.  I'll try the mods, thanks again.

I had the exactly the same problem when I switched my wife's Fido to PM 30 days plan yesterday.  It went to Fido's voice mail box. I was about to get panicy, then I got a SMS from PM said the porting was successful about 15 minutes later.  Just relax and wait for the SMS.

This means that all your incoming phone calls are still going to your old provider.  You should be able to still use the service at the old provider until the phone number is transfered.

 

Before contacting a moderator, I would make sure you have the correct account number from your old provider.  If the Public Mobile moderators need to resubmit the phone number transfer request, you'll need to be able to provide such information about your old provider's account.

 

Wireless to wireless provider number porting is supposed to be completed within 2.5 hours. Since you are saying that you made the phone number transfer request on a different day in the past, it's likely that you'll have to try to the number port again.  Don't try to do this yourself, but make sure you get a moderator to  help you.

Re: Ported number not receiving phone calls

Hello. I signed up with public mobile 12 days ago and have not been able to receive calls. Most text messages seem to work, I can make calls just not incoming. It says the number you have reached is not in service. Can this please be fixed.

You can try the following steps:

 

-Go into your phone's settings and under Cellular Settings, manually choose Public Mobile as your Network operator


-If that doesn't work, reboot your phone


-You can also power off your phone and remove your SIM.  Re-insert and power on.

 

If that doesn't work, you can send a private message to a Moderator_Team and ask them to look at your account.
