It's been 4 days now since I swapped my sim where I asked to keep my old number. 

When I make a call it's fine as these come from my old number but any text messages I send are still coming from my new O2 number - can anyone advise please?

You need to change the number in the settings what phone do you have?

 

For an iPhone follow the instructions here How To Change The Phone Number On Your iPhone - Macworld UK

Current Phone: Sony XPeria Pro-I and Motorola Razr 5G
I also have a Planet Computers Gemini

Thanks for the reply, since I posted this I googled this and as a result, I went into my text settings and changed my chat settings and this has now solved it and my texts are now being sent from my old number which I want to keep.

 

Thanks again for taking the time to reply - cheers
