Updating number on iMessage

If you have an iPhone and have just ported your number over to us, you may find that the number dispalyed on your iMessage is still your old TPO number. Here is what you will need to do to update your number.

How to Update your number

  1. Go to SettingsPhone > 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 ported 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 ported number
  6. Then tap Save.


Your iMessage settings should now display your ported number in place of your original TPO number.
