Pac code on new PAYG sim - no credit

I have ported my phone number to an o2 PAYG SIM only to realise the signal in my area is extremely poor 0 to 1 bar.

The only option I can see is to move again to another provider. But o2 say I can only receive a PAC via text message. I do not want to waste £10 simply to send a message to move elsewhere.

Does anyone know why they cannot simply provide the PAC over the phone?

NB: I am able to receive texts and calls.

Words fail me.

I am absolutely flabbergasted.

 

Yesterday I was hitting my head against a wall, and had some pretty cheeky attitude from an operator that I was at the stage of considering emailing OFCOM.

 

To understand the importance of keeping my number I mentoned I had it since the 90's.

It was originally a Cellnet number and originally began 0410 before it morphed to O2 and when the mobie number capacity was increased it chaged to 07710.

 

I really didn't want to lose it.

 

In the space of ONE afternoon, and via text/email, @O2Daniel has managed to sort the issue for mel

Not only that but has saved a potentially future customer as I had sworn yesterday never to return, now that I know there ARE people who can help when an issue arises I will again consider O2 when switching.


Would like to publically thank bot @O2Daniel and @O2Lisa for their help today and if there was any way to highlight their assistance to O2 I would happily do so.

 

Thank you both again, stay safe and have a great rest of the week!

Jim.

(p.s. here's hoping it ports ok and doesnt fail now 😂)

I’ve never been given such a run around as I have been today by O2 and all for a PAC code. O2 online chat and telephone customer service have been absolutely appalling. I've been given so much conflicting information that I could write a book. Can someone from O2 please contact and help me get a PAC code and redeem a little bit of O2 reputation. Thank you
