I am currently tempted to move to giffgaff by porting my number to this network, but the internet charges starting from may are slightly putting me off...


So i was wondering if i port my number to giffgaff and later decide to change back to another network, how should i request for a PAC code from giffgaff?


thank youu Smiley Happy

Thank you GiffGaff for an awesome service

To bring a number to giffgaff, you need to contact your current provider to request a PAC (Porting Authorisation Code)


If leaving giffgaff and taking your number with you:


Dial 43431 or go to to request a PAC


The PAC will be delivered by SMS within 2 hours (M-F 8-4) and displayed on your dashboard under your number.


The transfer must be initiated within 30 days of requesting the PAC, otherwise it will expire and you will need to request another. Please be aware that mobile networks are not obliged to provide a PAC once your account with them has been terminated.

I do not work for giffgaff, so cannot check anything on your account. This is a public community - please do not post any personal info.

Use the Ask an Agent feature. They'll happily give one to you. 


UPDATE 09/2011: You can now request a PAC code more or less instantly by calling 43430 on your phone.

A little bit lost with your new network? Have a look at my handcrafted online manual - head over to the giffgaff bible. It explains everything you need to know. Smiley Happy

It's simply a matter of using the Ask an agent link from the support page (you won't see the link until you have an active SIM) and asking for your PAC - you'll receive it shortly after.
