Transfer of vodafone number to 02

I bought an iphone last week and wanted to transfer my old vodafone number over to 02. I provided 02 with the PAC code and they told me it would happen today and that I might have no service for 30 mins or so while it happened.

I've had 'no service' on my iphone since 9.30 this morning and now my old vodafone phone says 'inactive sim'. Do I have to do anything? i.e put the vodafone sim into my 02 iphone (the iphone has an 02 sim in it at the moment) or does the number automatically get assigned to the 02 sim currently in my iphone?

Cheers!

Transfer of vodafone number to 02

hi my girlfriend, transfered over from vodafone to o2 this weekend too, she was told that nothing needed to be done her end and that the transfer would be seemless.....

hmmm... well she got a text on her new iphone last night saying that the transfer had been completed. She could make calls but not receive them. She could send texts but not receive them...

oddly enough all the calls and texts where sent from her transferred no. but when you send her a text it didnt go thru to the new number.

After calling O2 they advised that something had gone wrong and they would look into it (blaming Vodafone for not doing there job properly) anyhow an hour later and she received a text saying that all was fine and it was.

Try calling o2 and explaining what the problem is (if you can get a signal or use a landline!)

Transfer of vodafone number to 02

When I ported my number in for the first iphone it took a full 24 hours to get all the services. I got the text saying the transfer was complete, but it took a while for voicemail and text to start working.

I would keep switching the phone on and off to rejoin the network...

I can make and recive calls but cant connect to the internet or get 3g....I dont get a 2G dot or an 'e' or 3G indicator next to the signal strength bars apart from where it says 02-UK. I had a text from them earlier today saying things should be finished by 6.00pm tonight so I guess I'll wait until then and then call them.
