FREEPHONE numbers to get your PAC code from your old network

[ Edited ]

Shortlink: www.bit.ly/giffgaffpac

 

Since many people here will want to move their number from their old network to giffgaff so will need to ring up their old provider to ask for a PAC code, I have compiled a table of UK networks and freephone numbers to ring to get your PAC code from them - saving money's always good :smileywink:

 

credit to saynoto0870 for these numbers - this is just a compilation

If for some reason you want to port your number away from giffgaff (:smileysad:), here's how to get your PAC code from giffgaff (a freephone number of course :smileywink:):

Oh and if anyone has a network they'd like added to the list (though I think I've covered most of them) just post on here or drop me a PM :smileyhappy:
