I have just ported my phone no. over and the phone calls are fine. If I ring my mobile my ported no. works.

 

However if I send an imessage it comes through to the recipent as the original giffgaff no.

 

Any ideas please.

OK, have fixed this. Thought it good for others to know the answer.

 

Settings > Phone > My Number

 

Just changed no. to my ported no. All OK now.

 

Cheers for everyones advice.

you probably had your imessage app registered with the old number.  you'll need to have this changed.  read this https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3404451?start=0&tstart=0

There was a thread about this recently and I believe it has something to do with your iMessage settings. I believe you may need to check that your correct number is showing in the settings.
