Hi

Received my SIM today, have PAC from old provider which expires on the 28 Dec 2011, with porting closed down what would be the best arrangement so as to keep on line?

If I activate today could I get online with a different number?

Yes, you should get a giffgaff number assigned upon successful activation that you can use in the interim. I would then re-apply for a PAC in the new year and use that to port across your number. Proabably safer not to try it during the festive period in case something goes wrong and nobody is around to help.

Buy a goddie bag now and use it then use your PAC code in the new year, it just means you having a number you dont want for a week.

When you activate your sim you will get a giffgaff number. I would then submit your transfer request, then you can use your new gg number temp until your "old" number transfers over Smiley Happy

Best waiting till the new year mate before you transfer,if you do it now it could go belly up leaving you no service till the new year.

The other benefit is that you know how well gg works on your phone before taking plunge.
