I am aware that I can change my wireless number online; however, I do have some other questions regarding the process.
1. When does the change go into effect?
2. Are calls to my old number automatically forwarded to the new one?
3. If yes, for how long?
Welcome to the forums. If you change your phone number on line the phone number gets changed instantly. Anyone who calls your old number will likely get a message "number not assigned" as your new number is in effect. You will need to let your friends and family members know that your number has changed.
I sent a text message to one of my friends using my old number, i recently just changed my number on line. does my new number show in the old text message??
when you sent a txt your old number sent the msg. you change your number online, your text message sitting on your friends inbox of his phone will still have your old number.
what most people generally do, you dont have to be one of these people, but they send a mass txt msg to all their contacts advising them of a number change, otherwise you can call your friend, send him an e-mail, or even snail mail to inform him of your number change, its really up to you.
