Hi @doxy5678 get your PAC here, third item down "Take my number"

Hey there,

It sad that you want to leave giffgaff. However, you can request the PAC code by dialing 43431 you'll receive a text with your PAC code. Or, you can also request by log in here:
All you need to do is remove the payment card details if updated on account from here: so no further payment can be taken. Please note that PAC code validity is for 30 days only.

All the best!

@doxy5678 Dial 43431 for your PAC code to leave. Giffgaff, remember to remove recurring goodybags/payment details from the account and use up credit before you leave or text donate to charity maybe? Your account will remain should you ever wish to return to giffgaff so don't forget username and your log in details.
