Hi

 

I am moving from Virgin Media to O2 Mobile and want to keep my mobile number with Virgin Media.

 

I understand it takes 1 working day for the transfer to happen. I have received the new O2 sim but not put it in my phone yet as its a weekend and I need to use my old number.

 

Question is how long will a transfer take If I do it either on a Saturday or Sunday? I already gave the PUK code during the order stage.

 

Or is it worth waiting until Monday and then doing it?

Wait until Monday as nothing will happen until then.

It should then transfer on Tuesday or Wednesday Guide: Migration & porting into O2  

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

If you provide your PAC code anytime after Thursday Evening, the earliest the port can happen is Tuesday,  and will only happen once your new sim is active. 

 

So you can request it now and barring any issues then it will happen Tuesday, you will only know once o2 confirm by text the switch date.
