Phone number

I entered the wrong IMEI number when activating my wifes sim card. It shows her number on the account but cant recieve calls or texts. If i cancel my other account now will this number be released from them and work with PM? On there end it says there is a porting request in progress but has issues. I guess thats the wrong number i put in.

Re: Phone number

@Snow1man  Do not cancel either account. Just sit tight while you wait for a moderator to respond to your service request. Keep an eye on the envelope icon next to your avatar at the top right corner of your screen for a little number will pop up indicating a message from the moderators thru your private message box. Responding promptly to messages will speed up your service times. only a moderator can help in this situation.

@kselmak  The porting department cannot help in this situation because account access is needed  thru public mobile.

It's not an account issue at all, it's a port issue wrong information provided during the port initiation and the provider is still holding on to the number. 

Nothing wrong with the account, it's as usual during the port, as it should be.

I believe Telus porting centre can definitely help here.

 

OP can let them know the old provider account number and they should be able to complete the port request while on the phone.

Usually they only require one of these info (account number, IMEI, account PIN) to complete the port request (depending on who the old provider is).

Re: Phone number

Thanks. Didn't know that.  Would the wrong imea number have an impact on service once the port is complete?

Re: Phone number

@gblackmaValid question.

 

It does not matter. PM will know your IMEI once you turn on your phone and connect to their network.
