I solved this myself by doing a full reset.

I have been suffering the same affliction on my new 7+ too. However, a reset doesn't seem to have fixed it for me. I've tried a few things that people have recommended from various web searches, but no luck.

 

I can make and receive calls/texts/etc using the temporary number given to me, but the number that I wanted porting over seems non existant, despite a similar email saying it was "done".

 

When you reset, did you go to Settings>General>Reset>Erase All Content and Settings? Or is there some other hard reset that I've missed?
