Once you have your PAC don't forget to backup all the numbers off your sim before starting the transfer. Remember to keep your payback you need to keep coming back to the forum and being involved in the community, this has the advantage of keeping your account active should you choose to come back.

Thanks for visiting the community forum!


  • You can obtain your PAC code online here: PAC code request
  • Dial 43431 from your handset and follow the simple instructions

Your PAC code will be displayed on your dashboard page of My giffgaff - This will be valid for 30 days from the date of requesting this, So please ensure to use this before it expires (Otherwise you will need to get a New one) You will be sent an SMS (text message) to your phone which will contain your PAC code and should be received within 2 hours.


Ensure to delete any credit or debit card details and turn off any recurring goodybags/auto topups on your giffgaff account here: Payment details page


Any further queries and if you experience problem's with obtaining your PAC code, Then, I would advise speaking with a giffgaff agent. Whom will be more than happy to help you further with your query here: Contact a giffgaff agent


A giffgaff agent will usually reply within 24 hours from receiving you're message, However, They can be much quicker at less busy periods. The Agents hours are 8am to 10pm 7 days a week. You will find their message here: Agent replies


Your sim will be deactivated as soon as your number has transfered over to your NEW network provider. Any remaining allowances, Goodybags, Airtime credit or Payback will be lost. Your giffgaff 'username' will remain open should you ever wish to return to giffgaff at a later date and you wish to use the same username, All you will need to do, Is simply activate a NEW giffgaff sim card, Prior to transfering any mobile number from another network provider back to giffgaff.

Kind Regards
