When porting to a new network, we will tell you what day your number will port. Porting will take place between 09:00 and 17:00. On the day of your port you should continue to use your current device and SIM until you lose network coverage. If your coverage is still showing but you feel that you haven’t received any calls or texts for a while, try dialling your mobile number to see if it rings, or which voicemail service it connects to. If it connects to your new network, you have ported successfully. Please switch off your device, swap to your new SIM card or start using your new device. If you have network coverage on both your old and new SIM card, please switch the old handset off. This will allow the port to complete on your new SIM card. When a number ports on to a different network it usually does this in two stages with voice being first, followed by texts and data.

“Office 365” refers to subscription plans that include access to Office applications plus other productivity services that are enabled over the Internet (cloud services), such as Microsoft Teams and Exchange Online hosted email for business, and additional online storage with OneDrive.
Many Office 365 plans also include the desktop version of the latest Office applications, which users can install across multiple computers and devices.
The Office 365 plans that are online-only are a great choice for certain business needs, and they are compatible with desktop versions of the latest version of Office, Office 2010, Office 2007 (with slightly limited functionality), Office 2011 for Mac, and Office 2008 for Mac.
All Office 365 plans are paid for on a subscription basis, monthly or annually. With Office 365 you get automatic updates so you will be always be working on the most recent version.
You don’t need to install anything in order to use Office 365. To easily connect your desktop version of Office 2010 and 2007 to Office 365, Microsoft provides Office 365 customers an installable piece of software – called Office desktop setup – at no charge.
Office desktop setup provides many benefits, including:
We help with the roll-out and installation so you can rest assured that it will work in the best way for your business.
It’s principally a cloud-based service so you’ll need the internet at some point to get full use and the best experience from a productivity perspective. However, some services (such as Office on your Desktop – Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc.) can be used locally when there’s no internet and synchronised later when you get connectivity. This ensures data is accessible across devices and in the unfortunate case of a lost or broken device.
If a customer rolls out the cloud, your data can stay with you and you can use Office 365 as a clean break. This would mean your old data would need to be managed separately. The other option is to migrate all data to the cloud. We would recommend this option but can help you come up with the best option for your business.
Some programs need downloading such as Microsoft Teams. Office 365 products like Word, Excel and PowerPoint can be installed or accessed through a web browser. Updates can be managed centrally by administrators or at a desktop level by Microsoft device management tools. Most download and install automatically. However, your organisation may have policies and infrastructure in place that prevents this from happening.
Yes. Microsoft’s primary focus is on managing the Office 365 infrastructure and maintaining uptime for users. The misconception that Microsoft fully backs up your data on your behalf is quite common but ultimately, you need to ensure you have access to, and control over, your Exchange Online, Sharepoint Online and OneDrive for Business data. Key reasons why backing up Office 365 is critical:
