Re: Contract expiry

Thanks for getting in touch with us via the forum team WW1948.

 

Are you staying on a monthly contract when you get a new phone or have you asked to be changed to pay as you go customer? 

 

If you're on a pay monthly contract, you should be able to remain on a monthly contract if you choose to do so and that would in turn keep your number active with yourself. 

 

 

Regards

Re: Contract expiry

Thank you for confirming, so we can port the number across to the new offering SIM card, if the old SIM card is for a pay as you go this will automatically then cancel down after 90 days without use. 

 

Can we please confirm if you've been able to port this over since your post?

 

Let us know, Emily.

Re: Contract expiry

Sorry for the delay in replying. 

It seems as though there is some confusion here. 

So have you taken out a new contract whilst you currently have one that is due to end?

If this is the case are they both with Virgin Media?

If so we're unable to port from Virgin to Virgin, but I know you don't want to lose your number. 

You could look into upgrading your current number early, this means a new phone and the same number but a possible upgrade fee. 

Is the new contract you took out older than 14 days?

Re: Contract expiry

I do apologise WW1984. 

I'm not aware of the bank doing this myself, you should be able to update your contact details directly with them over the phone or online.
