I bought an unlocked iphone 7 plus - no sim - and inserted a new bt sim with its temporary number. I gave bt the pac code to keep my old number, but the temporary number is still registered as the number for the phone in my devices. Result is that my friends see texts coming from the temp number, not my old one. I have mucked about with imessage and face time, but that does not affect the number shown against my device, so it has no effect. How do I fix this? Please help
Solved! Go to Solution.
If your calls/texts are identified as coming from your temporary number when you call/text people then that would suggest that your number has not changed. Have you restarted your phone since the number port and what number does your phone respond to, the temporary one or the one you want it to respond to ?
In that case you should try updating your Apple ID, although I'm fairly certain I only needed to update mine as I previously suggested.
