My porting date was 14/10 and my vodafone sim became inactive at 12 noon on 14/10 and is not been transfered over to giff gaff yet? Im self employed and really cant afford my number to be off any longer! I appreciate they said can take 24 hours but its past that now and heading into weekend i have emailed giff gaff agent 3 times since yesterday and noone has responded to any my emails does anyone have any suggestionwould be greatly appreciated. Thankss

My number was ported yesterday too.

I did find that the dashboard took a lot longer to update to reflect the porting, than the actual physical number change.


I'm sure you've probably already checked, but just in case you haven't have you tried calling a friends mobile with your giffgaff sim to see what number is now associated with your sim?
