you don't need PAC, whta you need to do is a sim swap as per here http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Tips-Advice/How-to-use-SIM-Swap/td-p/6885194
If my answer resolved your query then please mark it as a 'best answer'. Thank you!

You can transfer your existing account, including your number, any credit, active and queued goodybags and any payback points, from one sim to another unactivated sim using the sim swap feature.

If you're trying to transfer your number to another activated sim on another giffgaff account, then this is not possible. You can only transfer numbers in or out of giffgaff accounts to or from other service providers, not between giffgaff accounts.

Hi, thank you for your reply. I have had a giffgaff account for many years which someone else had set up for me because I have never used the internet before. But not I have just a new Android touch screen phone, and have now decided to take total control of my own account. I now have a new giffgaff simcard that I now have in my new phone, and want to keep the same phone number that I have had for 20 years.  Thank you for your help. If you can help in anyway It would be very appreciated

You're in luck too, because the SIM swap process is actually very painless and easy to set-up.
