Impractical to keep the old number.

I have recently acquired a new smartphone (November of last year) and a new postpaid plan through my phone service provider. The main reason why I applied for a new one was that my previous line was under a corporate account and there wasn’t much flexibility afforded to me by it.

The initial plan was that I would get my previous line disconnected once I received my new plan, but two months have now passed and the line is still active. I haven’t requested for a disconnection yet, the reason is that I have procrastinated in letting my contacts know of my new mobile number. Some of my voiceover and audio production clients’ numbers are saved in my previous smartphone that went dead and only recently have I replaced the batteries and now that I have saved them in my new phone, I still haven’t given notice about my new number.

I know there’s a need for me to send a text message to all of them, but I am thinking otherwise. I might as well let them know of the information through email that way I wouldn’t incur additional charges on my new line. It would be impractical to keep the old number for much longer and still pay the monthly subscription fee.

Do you prefer I let them know via text message or should I contact them through email? What are your suggestions?

I went to pay as you go a long while back, I didn't want to worry about contracts anymore.

I would email them especially if they are professional contacts. It seems a little strange for you to keep both phones and pay for upkeep on both

I would let them know your new number through e-mail so you don't have additional charges on your new phone.

I know you are that busy with your disc jockey job. But still trying to revive you your PersonaPaper account.
