I cancelled a mobile contract almost a year ago now as the mobile was stolen, so got a new phone with a new number. However a friend texted me today saying she sent a text to my new number as well as my old number since she forgot to delete my old one...
Thing is she got a reply from my old number, I thought once I have cancelled a contract, this number will be out of use I also tried calling the number, it rings but no one is picking up... Should I be worried about this?

naa happened to me too. this basically means that since you haven't used that number for that long, a new sim card was made it that number and someone else bought it.
PS: when i called the person who had my old number she said not to call or txt (apparently some idiot was still calling or txting that old numba )

they recycle the numbers don't they?
Although randomly my mum called my number once and was 100 % sure it was my number she dialled, I didn't get a call but someone else picked up and confirmed the number as being the same... Not entirely sure how that worked but creeepy.
