Im so not happy people!! :mad:

yesterday people were saying on MSN that they couldnt ring me, and it was saying "the number you have called is not recognised" or something lke that

i just thought it was the network that was playing up since they are all on Orange not O2 so i didnt think much of it

any way, it got to about 1am and i was having an argument with a friend and he tried to ring me but it stil wasnt working. So i tried ringing the house phone and it brought up a different number that wasnt mine :|

i paniced thinking someone had swapped my SIM card and were using my phone, and as its contract/pay monthly this could of been VERY bad!

i couldnt ring the customer care since it was shut so i had to wait untill this morning. i didnt get much sleep

turns out that on the 31st someone got through all the security questions and requested my number to be changed.

the contract is in my mums name as when i got it 2 years ago i wasnt old enough to have it in my own name. BEcause its in her name i cannot change it back and have to wait for my mum to ring up and do it.

heres the best bit, the only person besides me that knew all the security questions was my mum, who has been on holiday since monday, and they said the number was changed on the 31st (thursday) and my mum has let me know that it wasnt her

im now stuck with a different number untill monday/tuesday

and i personally think O2 have changed this number by accident, because no one could know the security questions!!

so annoyed :mad: i have been without a mobile for 2 days without eve knowing!

On T-mobile they don't let you prank people or ring people if you've got like less than 20p.
It's like 'You have insufficient credit to make a call at the moment'.
Why would you like *****. lmao.

So somebody else changed your number through guessing or knowing your security stuff. Any idea who it is?

LMAO!

well thats what o2 say, but that would mean someone knew my mums DOB , address, postcode, and my grandmas maiden name. just seems a little far fetched

i personally think ok have screwed up and changed it by accident. on the site, when i sign in it says this new crazy number and also it says i have a nokia, but i have a samsung sooooo lol

Would you happen to have the Samsung D500?

And yeah it seems like there just trying to cover their own backs, playing the damn blame game.

Viper, sorry to hear that. I hope everything works out. I'm on T-Mobile and I haven't had any real problems though. My Mum has a contract phone, she has been having a nightmare with it, arghh, I hate contract phones, as I use to own one. I couldn't pay for it, as I was skint, so back I went to my normal phone lol.
