Isle of Man & mobile usage question...

6 replies
Found 9th Jul 2007
I am shortly moving to the IOM & they only have Manx Telecom at present. I "MUST" keep my mobile o2 number. They cannot port the number across, so I need a solution to my problem...can you help?

Is there a way round this without suffering international call charges (that's what they are when roaming on the IOM!):-( .

Any information or suggestions greatly appreciated.

:roll:

Pm IOM-RF he's the guy to help ya I guess. As far as I know he's still online

Sure mobile network is also now up and running!!!

I don't have a clue about using your O2 sim though, Instinct says it won't work, But you could always give MT a call?

My sim works fine over there, no problem at all. It's just the call charges that spoil it. I have had my number for years now & all my business associates have it tattooed into their brains (not literally of course)!

MT say they cannot port my number, that would be the easiest option...even though they are robbers!

I will look into sure net.

Thanks

Could you have a permanent divert to an IOM network mobile/sim, if you must keep that number/contract?

Of course. :oops: :-(

You sort of answer it yourself, no.

Only solution could be to port your number to pay as u go if not already on it and say put £20-30 on it. Then divert your calls for the short term to your new number, approx about £1 a min for recieving in IOM at moment. Anyone who calls give them your new number and ring them back or something.
