new sim, new account, your old account will deactivate after six months of not being used. ask 02 for your pac code and port it to gg,

Re: swap sim keep 02 number

as said above, each sim needs it own account


if you wanted to, log into the blackberry account, and then use this link to report the sim as lost

giffgaff will then send you a replacement sim (1st class I think), for your blackberry account (so you will keep the same number, credit, payback, etc on that account)


otherwise, just create a completely new account, active your new sim on that new account, and away you go


for porting your old number, you'll need to get a PAC off o2. sort out your account first (either the replacement sim or activating the new one) and then follow this guide

Re: swap sim keep 02 number

why dont you sign into your old account (the blackberry one) and report the sim and phone lost. Giffgaff will block that phone and send you out a replacement sim with that old number on it. Then if you really wanted you could just port your o2 number onto that account.
