Hi @bobby74200

 

Keeping your old number doesn't usually take too long after you begin the process. See table below for transfer days.

 

Please see this guide about keeping your old number: https://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Getting-started/How-do-I-keep-my-current-mobile-number/ta-p/352112...

 

You just need to contact your old mobile network for a PAC code (which they MUST give you), and then give it to giffgaff and you're all set.

 

See the below table for the ealiest transfer.

Time / Day of request Earliest transfer day
Between 17:01 on Friday and 17:00 on Monday Tuesday
Between 17:01 on Monday and 17:00 on Tuesday Wednesday
Between 17:01 on Tuesday and 17:00 on Wednesday Thursday
Between 17:01 on Wednesday and 17:00 on Thursday Friday
Between 17:01 on Thursday and 17:00 on Friday Monday

 

So if you started the transfer between now 20:55 on Monday and 17:00 on Tuesday, you can get your old number before the end of Wednesday.

 

If you still need help, feel free to reply to my message and mention me (@mrjeeves)

 

Thanks,
David

@bobby74200 if it's a transfer check date here please http://giffgaff.com/support/transfer on that date it can take up to 9pm latest for all services to fully update although most complete mid afternoon start phone every few hours helps out 

 

If it's moving your current number to new SIM card did you follow this guide sim swap please follow this guide to swap current number to new SIM card sim swap http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/giffgaff-Top-Tips/How-to-use-SIM-Swap/td-p/6885194 please remember sim swaps cannot be done between 9.30pm and 4.30am 

also remember to restart phone after approximately 30mins
