Welcome to Vodafone Community
Hi, I've recently moved to Vodafone from EE and have the Huawei Mate 20pro. I had a temporary number until today when my previous number was ported across and have now come up with an issue with Huawei Chat Features (RSC). When I send messages via this service, it uses the temporary number I was given and if it turn this service off so normal SMS is used, then the my ported number is used. I am finding this very frustrating and cannot find a way of resolving this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
When did the porting to Vodafone happen @thedoke ?
If recently then the porting in files may still be settling especially if it's still trying to use the Vodafone temporary number,and thus should resolve itself over a short period of time.
It might be beneficial also to conduct a Google Search as you may get help from one of the dedicated Huawei forums on this.
Current Phone > Samsung Note 20 Ultra 5G - SM9860 Snapdragon.

Hi, my number only ported yesterday so I guess it's a case of a giving it a few days of settling. I would imagine it takes a few days for the temp number to completely disconnect.
This problem won't be connected to your porting in, if you are able to use other services, the problem will be with the chat service being with your previous number prior to porting.
It may be necessary to do a factory reset of the phone, this will clear any previous stored history with the previous used number. You will then need to delete the application from the Play Store and download a fresh copy of the application to the phone for the new number.
On the contacts there is a contact for ME, here you will be able to enter your new number.
However, Huawei is swapping it's messaging application for Google Android Messaging and this may be something to consider.
Hi @AnnS Thank you for your reply. I have already updated my own number in my contacts, but for some reason, RCS still wishes to use the old temporary number. If it doesn't correct itself at some point today, then i'll do a complete factory reset later this evening when i am at home and see what happens.
Ideally, you should have set this up when the number ported. However, easily corrected, delete the app from the Play Store or you will only be downloading the same for the previous number.
When you set this up again from fresh all should be OK. Come back to the forum later when you have completed the change and report back.
I have just gone into the messages setting and deleted all data. When i loaded up the app again, it gave me the option to set up chat features again so hopefully this will work now. I'm just waiting for replies from my brother and other half.
