Just started new business pay monthly account. Ported old O2 number correctly to the new EE acount. This is confirmed online. Handset has been given random number with no credit and unable to use it for texts/calls/wifi. How do i get the handset (SIM card) changed to same as account so i can use my allocation?

This should have chnaged when giving the PAC code to EE.
When you ring your original number does it not ring you?
When you say sim has been given a random number this is because a sim comes with a number assigned to it but the can be changed.
Are you seeing a different number within the setting > About Phone section?
If so this is retrified by asking EE for a network refresh.

Hi Brendon, thanks for the reply.
The original number was changed to the random number, rather than the one i wanted to be ported across. I can recieve texts on the random number. I checked the random number by sending a text "number" to 150 when my phone originally wouldn't work. This is the same number that now appears on my profile in the contacts list.

OK you will need to contact EE to get this sorted.

This issue relates to a new business account. I also happen to have a personal account with EE which is not affected by this.

Ok, thanks for the reply Lee.
I am away from the UK on a business trip to Europe at the moment. I tried calling 150 for help on this matter but only got payment options...hence my appeal to the community. Is there another number i can ring for assistance bearing in mind the phone doesn't allow me to make 'normal' calls.

Dialing 150 should still connect, even with the temporary number.
Is the account acting as if it is a pay as you go, even though your on pay monthly?
"Handset has been given random number with no credit and unable to use it for texts/calls/wifi"
Do you have the personal contract phone with you?

Exactly. It should be an unlimited monthly contract phone but it thinks it is a pay-as-you-go with zero funds.
Yes the 150 number did work. just gave me 2 options. pay with visa or pay with voucher.
No unfortunately i dont have the personal contract phone with me.
