  • Leaving your current provider

    As a Pay as you go customer you can leave your current provider and join us at any time. If you’re moving from a Pay monthly contract with another provider to Pay as you go with us, termination rights and procedures are still likely to apply. The first step is to contact your provider and find out where you stand.

    If the payments for your TopUps are automatically withdrawn from your bank account on a regular basis, remember to cancel your Direct Debit to avoid paying both us and your old provider each time.

  • Using your device on our network

    If you wish to use your current device on our network, you might need a network unlock code. You can contact your current provider to find out whether your device is locked to their network – if it is, they can give you a network unlock code to release it. Please note that your provider may charge you a fee to unlock your device.

    We'd recommend you don’t use a third party service to get your network unlock code, such as a local phone shop. Using a third party may void your warranty – please call your current provider instead

    When transferring to a new provider, be mindful of the loss of any unused pre-paid minutes, texts or data, including any you’ve gained by staying with your current provider over a period of time.

  • Keep your number

    If you’re joining us from another network and want to keep your number, you’ll need a Porting Authorisation Code, commonly called a PAC. You need to ask your old network to send you your PAC – this will occur within a maximum of two hours after your request.

    To request your PAC from your old provider you’ll need to call them. Contact details can be found on their website through the following links:

    When you’ve received the PAC, just fill in the number transfer form and we’ll do the rest.

    Your PAC is only valid for 30 days from the date it’s issued, so you’ll need to give it to us in time to set up your move. If you wait too long, you’ll have to get another PAC. If you change your mind about moving your number, don’t worry – if you don’t send us your PAC nothing will happen.

    How long will it take for my services to be transferred?

  • Your first day with us

    • If you’re keeping your current number, it should move across between 11am and 4pm on the day you join, but it can sometimes take until the end of the working day. We'll send you a text to welcome you on board as a Pay as you go customer. You’ll need to make a chargeable call or send a text to activate your number
    • If you experience any delays in porting your number to us, you will receive automatic compensation.
