Hi there,

 

I am also having similar problems. I can text and call some people after my number porting earlier today, but am not able to send texts to quite a few people - it just won't send them! (iphone 5s user)

 

Hope to hear from you soon as this is quite a pain for me!

 

Thanks, Katherine

Hi there

It sounds like you potentially have a split port. What you'll need to do is contact customer service on 191 or use LiveChat - they will need to look into this for you.

I'm afraid that this is a customer to customer support forum with no access to your account.

Hi there

 

It sounds like you have something called a split port which is where part of the functionality doesn't transfer across and remains on the original network. Do be aware that porting takes place in stages and can take up to 24 hours to complete. 

 

If it has been more than 24 hours since the number porting began, you will need to continue to liaise with customer service on 191 or Live Chat.  They have the account access needed to be able to solve you issue.

 

As you are on an iPhone it may also be an idea to go into the settings and reset the network settings.

Hi there,

Having the same problem as these customers. Have moved over to Vodafone and have so far not been able to receive or make any calls or texts.

Please help.

So I've just been informed that I have a split port which still isn't fixed. I begrudge paying for a service when I'm not getting any service. Vodafone have been running long enough to know how things work why can't they complete the simplest of tasks without all this messing around. I'm seriously regretting moving to them now and all I can say is I hope this isn't a sign of how the next two years are going to be

Hi there

 

In order to follow up on your issue, please continue to liaise with customer services on 191 or use LiveChat.  This is now a customer to customer support forum which means that we can't deal with account specific queries such as yours.

I don't want to receive updates by email about this thread any longer, but don't want to disable the generic option to hear about other threads I may reply to. How do I go about this?

I'm also having this problem and getting nowhere! So frustrating when only just joined Vodafone. Contact centre has a 4 hour wait on calls and Twitter aren't responding and there is no live chat.
Horrendous experience so far as a new customer to Vodafone

it's been the worst experience with any company in my life ever. I eventually got to the bottom of it myself after so many lies. They cut me off cos I didnt pay my bill (1 week into signing up and they already had all my bank details) .... it affected y credit rating, I spoke to approx 20 different people and have yet to have an apology or any help what so ever. I'm re-connected but I am furious and will be taking a very long complaint to Newbury HQ myself.  My advice.. stay away from such a horrific organisation as Vodafone and demand compensation.. (although it falls on deaf ears and noone ever responds or keeps to promises)
