Okay so at first it was kind of funny but then I realised it is quite serious.
Since I put my new sim card in my mobile phone I have had notifications for the old owner of the number: from NHS (no reply) with his her STDs results (test taken in January) , a phone call from Birmingham hospital which I called back and was a general switchboard. A text conversation with someone insisting I was Charlie, texts from Empire showing me when the delivery is arriving in Devon, I am in Derbyshire and not a Empire customer and a text today from a lovely Mama Westley who had taken the dog out and made fish pie.
Can I either have a new number and maybe a nice sorry card for the inconvience caused by BT giving me the number that someone else only gave up in January 18? Oh and will I still get my cahsback reward of £100 from the January deal I signed up too in December?
Can BT arrange for my life to become happier and more interesting so I don't feel down and depressed about hearing allsorts of information about someone living the dream? Oh course I will give needing a test for STDs a miss.
By the way it is a good thing I am getting these messages and not a person who has a less understanding partner.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank you guys.
I contacted the mobile team and they gave me a new number.
They said the previous owner could have been dead or not have paid there bill and that would explain why I was getting texts for them in January ie the previolus owner had not changed their number once they were no longer using the old one.
They also said that I would still be able to claim cashback.
I will start another thread on that because the original questions here have been answered.
Thank you again
