I am trying to port my number over from another carrier service and have received an email telling me that the request has failed with the error "(017) Mobile phone number not associated with Account/Reference
number". However, my account and number are still active with my carrier. Please advise.
Welcome to the community,
Could you please send me a PM (private message) with your Full Name, CID (customer identication number) and your mobile phone number, so I can take a look at your service?
Welcome to the Community!
I've managed to locate your account using your Community details and have seen that an email was sent from our Mobile support team advising you as to why the porting has failed.
It is important that your old number is still active in order for the porting process to be completed.
Please contact your current mobile provider and advise them of the information in the email sent to you, then let us know whether we can still proceed with the porting of your number.
Feel free to reach out to us again should you require further assistance.
