Ofcom rules say you have to be given your PAC within 2 working days - so tell them that if they try and mess you about :-)
Oh and touting for sims is not allowed on the forum.
I think the OFCOM rulings have changed now Mary! I can't remember precisely what they are, but I believe they must provide it to you within 2 hours now.
But I will find out what the exact rule is right away
How do I change from o2 to giffgaff?
1) What number do I call?
2) How do I get my PAC Number?
3) How long will it take?
4) How long does the number take to transfer over to giffgaff?
Get a giffgaff sim either by asking one of the current gg customers or go to the gg website and request one. If u do it through one of us u get £5 credit and so do we.
Everything on GG is done online - No call centres.
Call O2 and speak to customer services (4445 from your mobile) and request a PAC code. They should give it to immediately.
This number shall allow you to port your O2 number to GG.
Activate your GG sim and use you pac number to port your number to GG (you shall have to email an GG agent to do this (from your account).
Takes approx 2 days ( between Monday to Friday )
Hope this gets you started.
Yes it is 2 hours now:
"Tell them you want to take your mobile number(s) with you and ask for a Porting Authorisation Code or PAC. It must be issued to you immediately over the phone or within two hours by text message."
