How can i keep my number and where to call
To bring your mobile number to giffgaff, you need to:
- Activate and top-up a giffgaff SIM - this will give you a new (albeit temporary) number. The credit you add now will be carried forward when the port is complete, so you won't lose it.
- Contact your current Service Provider and request a PAC (Porting Authorisation Code) to transfer (port-out) your number to another network.PACs are valid for 30 days from the issue date.
- Make sure your giffgaff account and SIM has been fully activated - allow at least 24 hours after the SIM has started working before requesting the transfer. Trying before this may result in problems accessing the transfer request form.
- Log in to your account, then go to:http://giffgaff.com/support/portin
Note: Transfers are only carried out on normal weekdays, not on Saturday, Sunday or public holidays.
Remember to backup your contacts and data on your old SIM before proceeding with the transfer..
This guide provides full details of the process http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Getting-started/H
Please note: You can only transfer (port) a number from one UK network to a different UK network. You cannot port a number from one network to the same network (e.g. giffgaff to giffgaff), or to/from a non-UK provider's network.

If you want to bring your number into giffgaff, then to port in you need to request a PAC number from your current provider. Have a look at the guide here: http://bit.ly/ggkeepmynumber
Your current network should be able to text a PAC to you within 24 hours or email one within 48 hours. However, some are more willing than others, so be prepared to chase, especially the smaller networks.
If you want to take your giffgaff number to a different network, you can request a PAC number here http://giffgaff.com/help/pac-code-request or by dialing 43431.
