Phone number already in use

Hi there, my mom recently became a PM customer and was assigned a new phone number through the activation process. However, it seems that this phone number is already assigned to another person, as my mom has been receiving calls asking for this other person. She also can't use her number to register for things like Uber because it says "phone number already in use". Does anybody know how to resolve this issue? If not, how would we get in touch with a PM support staff? Thanks!

Many " New numbers " are actually numbers that were assigned to someone but then has discontinued the service.  The numbers are inactive for a set amount of time then they can be reassigned.  You can try getting a new number through self serve. But you only get one number change a month.  Not sure if a mod doing a number change will affect this rule.

Hi @frankfrank, Not sure I understand your issue.  Could you please elaborate?  Also, for future reference, it is always better to start a new topic for a new question.  That way your issue gets the most exposure, and quicker responses.
