How long to transfer number???

How long should it take to transfer a number from contract to Pay & Go?

I think it was meant to go through by 6pm on Friday! Smiley Mad

How long to transfer number???

If you are porting your number from a contract with another provider it takes about 2 working days from the time you give the new provider the PAC. (You would be told a date)

If you are migrating a number from O2 contract to O2 PAYG it normally takes up to 24 hours.

Hi, thanks for the replies.

Sorted now - apparently you must top up before your number becomes active! :womanindifferent:

How long to transfer number???

I am in the same position (transferring from pay monthly to pay as you go) and today was meant to be the transfer day but my number has not been switched to my new sim. The new sim works and i have the 02 service but on the new number for that sim and not the one i wanted to switch. Any ideas on how to get my original number?

Hi there,

Has your old contract SIM died (ie. Inactive SIM)?

If so, then I think your number will have been transferred.

My number was "unavailable" when you dialled it so thought it hadn't worked – rang O2 who told me to top-up my phone to activate the number transfer. :womanindifferent:

I got the same problem, waiting for my monthly number to be transferred over to Pay & go. I asked O2 If I needed to top up the new sim card & they said no. Will try it now to see if anything happens.

Oh this is good to know, I have been waiting for 3 days for my calls to be activated but until now I did not know that I had to top-up to activate my calls.

I migrated from Orange to O2 pay and go and have confirmation that I am now fully on O2 but I can only receive text messages not calls Smiley Wink I will go top-up and see if my calls work.
