Hmm that's a little strange @krusty71, when activating a new sim card - there are two options: New and Replacement. If you have opted for the replacement tab, this will activate the existing number attached to your account.
If you were wanting a completely new number, I would recommend heading into store and the teams on site will be able to provide you with another card to activate the service -Quade
