MichaelNZ:

 

And the texts keep coming...

 

I have obtained a 028 Warehouse Mobile SIM and applied to port the number.

 

 

@MichaelNZ Were they from the same shortcode or different?

MichaelNZ: ... I have obtained a 028 Warehouse Mobile SIM and applied to port the number.

Please explain to me what portin the number to a Warehouse Mobile number will achieve? It is my understanding that your Warehouse Mobile SIM card will now have your Vodafone 021 number and the 028 number will disappear into the bit bucket (to be recycled?)
As a humanbeing, I don't care what SIM card you are using, as long as I can get through to the original 021 number. Aren't you spending $x for a new SIM and then simply transferring the problem to the new SIM?

Linux: that part of the help section on the VodafoneNZ site should mention postpaid subscribers only and Prepay can not use this network feature

MichaelNZ: ... I doubt they even care if it's disconnected or not. As long as they keep the money rolling in

I think these two comments directly relate to each other and apply to many big businesses, not just casinos and telcos.

I asked Vodafone to check it and they were able to tell me the history of that number . not sure if all mobile providers can do it I assume they can. 

 

They can even see the history of number ports they can see how many times a number has been ported and to what provider.

That is a clear breach of the privacy act if they did

I thought that @MichaelNZ was meaning, get a Vodafone account with an 028 number. By porting a WM number to Vodafone.

Data is purged why would a Telco need notes let's say from 7 years ago on the main CRM data base a backup is kept but that is it

@IcI

 

I have a 021 Vodafone SIM and am porting a 028 "Warehouse Mobile" number to it.

 

Reasons:

 

1. Change the number to stop texts and calls related to the previous user.

 

2. Hopefully, "028", being a newer number range, is less likely to be recycled.

The 028 prefix is quite old. 

 

0280 Compass Communications
028 CallPlus or BLACK + WHITE
0284 Warehouse Mobile
02885 Vodafone
02886 Vodafone
02896 NOW
