@05r1mosl 

It means the porting of your old number has started.

You need to put your new O2 sim in your phone and keep rebooting until you get a connection.

It can take up to 24 hours but usually no more than 3 to 4 hours.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

Hi @05r1mosl 

You need to call customer service.

Call 202 from your mobile or 0344 809 0202

If you have no access to a phone then use Skype to call 0800 032 1402

Or you can use social  media

 

 Facebook (https://o2uk.co/O2CFB) , Twitter ( https://o2uk.co/O2CTW) or Instagram (https://o2uk.co/O2CIG) , they should be able to help you with this.
