Hi. I have two sims with Virgin. The contract on Sim 1 has expired and this is the mobile number I have always used (was transferred from another network 12 months ago). Sim 2 still has several months remaining on the minimum contract period. I don't use Sim 2 so this is dead money that I'm paying each month. Put simply, I want to transfer the number from Sim 1 onto Sim 2 and cancel the contract on Sim 1. Whichever way you look at it, I want to pay just one contract and keep the number from Sim 1. I spoke to Virgin rep but it seems very complicated - I need to purchase a PAYG sim for a non-Virgin network, make at least one call, request PAC codes to transfer Virgin Sim 1 number to PAYG sim, cancel contract on Virgin Sim 1, transfer PAYG number to Virgin Sim 2 etc. is there really no simpler way? If I'm going to have to purchase a new sim for another network and transfer my number to that network, I am likely to just stay on the new network.
Thanks (sorry for the lack of carriage returns but my browser is struggling to navigate across paragraphs when editing).
