Port mobile number and keep account open

I have an Oomph sim and I want to switch the number to a new account with a different provider. I can get a PAC code but I then want the Virgin Oomph account to stay open and transfer another number on to it. Is it possible to do that? Is so please can someone explain how?

Thanks!

Re: Port mobile number and keep account open

i don't think that is possible pac codes canel it i don't know how you can go around this you can get a pac code and get a new sim from virgin ring up day after the number is transfered off it depends you have to pay the rest of the contract you have with virgin media but its not posablie to keep the sim running you can do it virgin moblie pay mouthly to pay as you go or other way around with virgin moblie.

sorry it will get canneled if you pac code the number to a other provider and you have to pay off the contract .

Hello @DavidJWalker 

I am afraid that Virginmedia no longer offer a Pay As You Go SIM, they have not for some time.

Re: Port mobile number and keep account open

its a shame you can't do it then i think you have to pac code the number and ask virgin moblie to replace it with a new number when your number is transfered to a other provider

Re: Port mobile number and keep account open

Transferring another number on to your Oomph SIM is not a problem. However Transferring its original number elsewhere may prove difficult and you may end up with mote problems than it is worth.

As stated, there is no Virgin PAYG 

You would best be advised to contact the Oomph team
