Re: Change my phone number

Hey there @qwerty23, welcome to the community!

 

Can you please give us a little more details about what you mean?

 

Did you require any help from customer service? 

 

Did you reach out to customer service in the days prior or following your telephone number change?

Re: Change my phone number

Hello Lcsndrrfnn,

 

  Welcome to the community!

 

  Unfortunately, if the line with the other provider has already been cancelled, it's unlikely you will be able to get the same phone number. Generally, once a phone line gets cancelled, its associated phone number is out-of-circulation for a period of time. Other providers won't be able to access that phone number.

 

  I'm not positive, but there may be a way for the original provider to possibly reverse the cancellation?? You might consider contacting your original provider to enquire if such a procedure is possible.

 

Hope this helps 😀

 

Cheers
