Hi guys!

I decided to change my provider and came from Lebara to giffgaff. I wanted to transfer my number from Lebara to giffgaff ... and set the date to today (pac was no problem at all) ... since i need to be reachable on this number from mon - fri! As you guys probably know ... they only transfer numbers during the weekdays (if i knew that in the first place, it would have been a reason for me not to change at all)! Can someone help me by telling me about your experiences? Do you wake up with your new number? Do you miss services for a longer periode? thank you in advance!

Kind regards,

personally i woke up with my number changed at around 9AM but i know others suffer from all day outages and sometimes longer! however, judging by the relatively few questions like that on the forum i would presume its a minority. Your number should transfer either monday or tuesday Smiley Happy

I've never had my number transferred, However many people come on the forums moaning about why something may not be working, for example their texts. The process can take 24 hours, in that time mobile services may not work and functionality of will come back gradually.

well since you requested it today it wont happen until monday or tuesday since ports dont happen on weekends.

Also when I transferred my number it was a very smooth and fast experience. I couldnt use my phone for about 3 hours although others say it takes whole day.

There have been problems recently with some people where the port doesnt go through properly but if this happens just contact an agent.

its best to make some arangement to use a alternative number , most cases both sims are down for a few hours , at this stage your old sim is now dead , ports happen in stages and return same way , mine was down for 4 hours max

My number was ported from Tesco. All went fine and agents kept me informed. Check your inbox.
