I have just found myself in the exact same position as you were in a couple of years ago. My number (i have had since 1975) has been annoyingly changed without my saying so.
I was wondering if you found a way to get this issue resolved, and if so how you went about this?
Any advice would be helpful, as i'm sure you will know how frustrating this situation is!
did transferring to Vodafone successfully bring your old number through?
I've just checked Vodafone and their install date is more than 14 days in future, so beyond the 14 day cancellation.
What did you do?
Thanks for replying. This is for my parents phone - nowtv claim the option to port number wasn't selected. It was - I ordered it and did think of screenshot the page / video it at the time in case of a problem.
Spoke to nowtv with their couldn't care less attitude of, the numbers gone and nothing can do.
In truth more like, we don't care and choose to do nothing.
