New sim, keep old number?

I have today had a fruitful call with retentions. 😎 

I am moving onto ultimate oomph with new sim card. I didn't really want a new card but apparently it's part of the deal anyway.

My mobile is not on VM atm but o2, can I get a PAC to keep my old number because I have just been sent an email with a new mobile number.

If I can get a PAC to keep my old number do I leave my old sim card in until I get a PAC number?

 

Jim.

Re: New sim, keep old number?

When you get the PAC from O2 it will give you a date for the swap. You can use the old card up to then

You ask O2 for your pac, then give that pac to virgin mobile.

 

Virgin mobile will give you a date the number transfers and then you put the virgin sim into your phone on that date

Thanks for that, can I give my PAC number direct to VM mobile account online. Using 150 today was painful to say the least. 😉

Yes, all sorted thanks. The leaflet that came with the sim card had all I needed on it.
