Update your number

Follow these simple steps to update your number.

  1. Go to Settings > Phone > My Number.
  2. Replace the temporary number you find there with your own number - use +44 instead of the first 0.
  3. Then tap Save.

Reset iMessage settings

Your iMessage settings won't reset themselves during porting - the temporary number will still be in your new iPhone.

To input your old number into your new iPhone:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Tap on Messages
  3. Tap iMessage ON
  4. Scroll down to Send & Receive number
  5. Replace the temporary number with your old number
  6. Then tap Save.

That's it, you're all ready for action.
