Just what the subject says, really... I'm on a £20/month Simplicity contract and want to change to a Pay-As-You-Go with O2, as that is more in line with my current requirements and financial situation. Obviously I want to retain my old number. Can I do it in a straightforward way by contacting O2 customer service, or would it have to be in a more roundabout way (get PACS code, get a PayG SIM, change number, then cancel Simplicity contract... I'm assuming here that porting a number to Pay-As-You-Go is no problem).
Would appreciate any helpful advice... thanks!

Thanks for the reply. I was hoping somehow my currently Simplicity contract could be "converted" to Pay-and-Go with O2. I have a Tesco Pay-And-Go SIM that I haven't used for quite a while so I could transfer the number to it, but I was hoping I could stick with O2 network through PayG without having to buy a new SIM. So you're saying that that (i.e. Simplicity->PayG with O2 without changing SIM) can't be done?

The PAC code is generated as an authorisation that you are not in arrears and are out of contract and can move your number. every contract need a PAC code. the only time you dont need a PAC code is to go from O2 prepay to O2 contract as it is within O2 and obviously you cant get into arrears on prepay and there is no contract.
As i said you are getting conflicting info on here, ring Customer Services.
