2. Get your PAC or STAC code Thanks to Text to Switch, this part of the process - for many the most frustrating part - has become incredibly easy for the overwhelming majority of people. Almost anyone on a Pay Monthly contract with a phone, a SIM Only contract, or using Pay as You Go can use Text to Switch.
All you have to do is text PAC to 65075 from the number you want to switch. Sending the text is free of charge.
That’s it. You should get a text back with your PAC code within one minute. A PAC code is only valid for 30 days from when it’s issued - if it goes unused, you’ll need to request a new one.
If you don’t want to transfer your number when you switch,, you can ask for a STAC code instead. Assuming you are eligible, this will terminate your contract with your provider without keeping your number. To do this, text STAC to 75075.
If for some reason you can’t use Text to Switch, you can instead contact the customer service team for your current provider and ask for your PAC or STAC code. It’s very common for customers to ask how to port a phone number, so this should be a straightforward request.
