@feesaaa  if brining number to giffgaff from another network the earliest date would be Monday next week sorry as transfers don't take place over weekends here's a full guide to transferring 


please follow this guide to Transfers hello an welcome my friend . 


you will need to first make sure your phone is on 02 or unlocked 


an that you have requested a pac code from previous network



if need a giffgaff sim card order one here please 



 an then activate your giffgaff sim with £10 voucher even an 02 voucher works.


 before you can fill in the number transfer form with your PAC code . .


to activate your sim follow this link an click on activate with top up voucher . 


After your sim is fully activated this is when you can see your number here 


and able to make and receive calls click on link below and enter your pac code  


the date format is like this eg 18/03/2019 


The form will always show the next available date for transfer 


also remember to input your old networks number without gaps eg 07 then the other 9 digits

It says 18/03/19 for the transfer date.
Can’t it happen any quicker than that?
Also it says that I requested the transfer on 15/03/19 but I requested it on 14/03/19.
Lol I jus really need my number to be transferred as soon as possible.

@feesaaa  unfortunately the date shown would be the earliest date available for transferring numbers as its one company that does all UK transfers of numbers
