Text messages still showing old number

I have successfully transferred my old number over to giffgaff - I have an iphone 3GS. However when I send text messages it is sent with the old number. Have I forgotten to change something?

Re: Text messages still showing old number

Re: Text messages still showing old number

settings have nothing to do with texts. Why do people suddenly start posting settings?

Looks like either the port was incomplete.. Or i think you need to save your number in contacts..

 

EDIT: If you ported the old number over obviously you wanted that one.. Your question is unclear..

Please Kudos anyone if you think they helped!

I'm guessing that this is using iMessage so yes you need to change it manually.

Re: Text messages still showing old number

If you transferred old number, the old mobile number is going to show when you text.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY OLD NUMBER, GG NO OR PORTED IN NUMBER?

Re: Text messages still showing old number

Sorry - the original sim number shows on the phones that receive my text messages. When I call another phone it shows my ported in number.
