A couple of months ago I switched from O2 to T Mobile. I wanted to keep my number so I obtained my PAC code, informed T Mobile and it was subsequently transferred. Whilst this was being sorted out, I was given a temporary number, which I didn't end up using, giving out to anyone, etc, I just waited until my usual number was transferred over. Since then though, friends and family keep asking me if I've changed my number as apparently when I text them it sometimes comes from the temporary number rather than my proper one, IYSWIM. It's causing confusion with people now and I'm just wondering if anyone here has had this problem and how you sorted it?

I'd call T Mobile and see what's happening. I've had a text come from a completely different random number before, and when I texted my friend I didn't recognise the number either, they called it and some woman answered. Very weird!

Is your mobile an iPhone? If so I had this when I got a new phone and bought my number across. I had to go into settings, then messages and change the 'send & receive' number to my actual mobile number. Hope that helps x

It is an iPhone indeed. Thank you for the tip, I'll have a look in settings. I've got a feeling it's going to have the temp number in there somewhere then!
If that doesn't work I'll probably have to give them a call. Thanks both x
