Hope you don't leave
Here's how to go about requesting a PAC (Port Authorisation Code) Code.
1. Ask an Agent for your PAC code (they will reply to most cases within 24 hours)
2. Wait for a response here:
3. Give said PAC code to your new network, tell them you want to keep your old number.
4. Wait a few days and Voila! all set to go!

Hi, wonder if anyone can help me... I ordered a PAC code thinking it was something else, but I definitely don't want to leave giff gaff! Just today I topped up £10 hoping to get the £10 goody bag, but it didn't seem to come through, so I requested a PAC code thinking it would help (not really sure why). Does the fact that I got a PAC code mean I have to leave giff gaff?
No, don't worry.
Using the PAC is a two stage process, and unless you give the code to another provider, nothing will happen and the PAC will expire unused
