Make sure that you have the old sim card in your phone when you're porting your number. You should get a message from your old carrier asking to confirm if you would like to port your number. Your reply should be: YES.
The confirmation message can take a few minutes to come in. You have 90 minutes from the time of request.

I installed my new sim card before having my number ported and existing service cancelled. I have reinstalled the old sim card and now still have previous service. How can I rectify this situation .
Do you complete the Public Mobile SIM card activation...were you charged for it?
Activate here: https://publicmobile.ca/en/on/portal/activation
Porting can take place during this process.
Was this a landline or cell you wanted to port over?
If you just ported your phone number from another cell provider it could take a few hours to complete the port.
Using the other cell provider's SIM you should be still receiving calls on it, until the port completes.
Make sure you do not cancel your previous provider's services.
Incoming calls are usually the last to port over.
Leave the OLD provider SIM card in your phone to accept the PORT via SMS/text.
If you missed this 90 minute window, submit a ticket via this link to re-initiate the port:
Thank you as I thought. I didn't want offer the telus porting department number if it was the other way around. So the OP asking Sasktel to reinitiate the port request will not help only pm customer support or the telus porting department can do that.
If you need the telus porting department phone number just ask and it will be private messaged to you. Have your Sasktel account # handy if you call them. Then put your Sasktel SIM back in your phone and reply YES within 90 minutes of receiving the porting authorization text to complete the porting process.
You will need to have the porting process reinitiated again. If the old SIM is cancelled and doesn’t work, you need to have them reinstated the service.
Remember to leave the old SIM in the phone and wait for the SMS text to confirm that you are porting over to PM but you have 90 minutes to confirm.
