How long after taking out a contract, can I port my old number in?

I want to take out a contract soon, but my current contract isn't due to end until March. Is it possible to move my number across then, if I take the new contract out now?

Hi @MrAidanlw97 you can port in a number whenever you wish, there's no time constraints.

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.

Currently using:
OnePlus 6 (O2 & Sfr), Z3 Tablet (Three UK), iPhone 8+ (EE)

@MrAidanlw97

Are you with o2 and wanting to upgrade? Or are you moving from another network to O2?

I already with O2 follow the advice here https://www.o2.co.uk/help/pay-monthly/upgrading-your-pay-monthly-mobile

If with another provider you will have to pay off your contract first, ask for your Pac from them and port in to O2
