    Hi All,

    Got a iPhone 6 was on O2, got my PAC code and switched to 3 moving my number with me. Had a temporary number for a few days, just got a text to say everything is swapped, which it is as people have called my normal number with success and my temporary one now says it doesn't exist when you try to call it so all good.

    However, iMessage still uses my temporary number and it doesn't see my existing one in contacts the "my number" thing at the top still reads the temporary number and not my proper one? Any idea whats going on here?
