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.

I have just tried calling o2 to get my pac code in a situation similar to OP and they keep telling me to text for my pac code, when I say I can't and would like the pac code over the phone I am put on hold for 10 mins whilst they speak to supervisor then cut off. This has happened twice this evening. Is there anyone on this thread that can help?!

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.
