Ive been sent a text to my old phone on the Vodafone network, telling me to switch my phone off on the day my number is ported to my new phone on the 02 network - which phone am I switching off?

No need to switch either off.

Once your Voda sim loses connection you just need to reboot your O2 sim every hour or so until you get a network connection.

Thanks! As the new phone already has a number (and therefore has a network connection alteady) how will I know when the number has ported?

It will lose connection too before the port finishes @Richard0345 

You can then call your own number from another phone when the connection returns to confirm it's all changed over.

The key is to keep rebooting.
