Switched from Vodafone to ID mobile 6 weeks ago. Number swap via PAC all went smoothly and all has been fine ever since until this week when texts sent appeared on receiving phone as being sent via the temporary number used only for a day or two whilst the number swap happened. Calls and Whatsapp display the right number. The problem seems to have happened before to others and Google suggests changing a setting on the mobile but the menu route it suggests does not exist. I'm thinking of a replacement SIM but any other thoughts welcome.
