Want to sell my PAYG SIM

Hi,

 

I have an O2 PAYG SIM with a nice phone number and £40 credit remaining.

I have it registered to my name and my email.

I would like to sell the number and change the account details to the new owner.

What is the easiest way of doing this please?

I would like a new owner to get the SIM together with the remaining £40 credit.

 

Thanks

Raf

Advertise it on ebay

I know that. But how to I change the account details so that new owner keeps the credit?

Request a PAC and give it to the new owner who can then register it with another network. They can always return to O2 if they wish,

You can't change the details on PAYG.

The credit will stay with the sim but the new owner will have to register it with new details.

I'd use the credit and then get a PAC and provide it to the new owner as the chances are they are a business owner (who like memorable numbers for obvious reasons) who will probably transfer it to an existing SIM anyway.

 

Good luck.

Current tech used:
Samsung A40 on giffgaff, Core i7 9700F PC with Win 10 Pro. Apple Mac Mini late 2014 with Core i5 running 10.15

I don't work for O2 but have an interest in networks (including mobile) and IT (which is how I earn my living)

Re: Want to sell my PAYG SIM

I would definitely go the PAC route because if the number has been registered on My O2 then that's where the security details will be needed for the new owner.
