Long story short
ported my Father's number from GiffGaff to Life mobile
all was planned to go through yesterday, and his GG sim died very early about 9am
but Life sim did nit come back till later in teh day .... all normal .... but he can make calls and send SMS and caller ID shows the ported in number - so thta side works - but he cannot receive calls or SMS. When calling his old number I get the message that teh number is not recognised. Also his temporary Life Mobile number is dead.
Spoke with Life today via live chat and they say it sounds like a "partial port" and they will look into it.
Has anyone heard of such a thing and if so did it get resolved? Life say it may take up to 5 days to fix !!!
thanks in advance
