Porting number to O2

I have just signed up for a new O2 pay monthly contract and I provided my PAC from Three when ordering. I've received my SIM card with a temporary number. When I was placing the order I'm sure there was mention of sending a text message to a particular number to initiate the number transfer, but I can't remember what it was and can't find any information on it. Does anyone know?

 

Thanks in advance.

Unless you have a text from O2 with a transfer date, it isn't going to happen.

 Hi @Paddiewack, thanks for your reply! I had assumed this was for when you haven't already provided the PAC to O2?

It wouldn't happen over the weekend anyway @Sebby 

The earliest will be today, if you get the text, or tomorrow.

To move things along contact O2 on social media...

Message O2 on Facebook ( https://o2uk.co/O2CFB) , Twitter ( https://o2uk.co/O2CTW) or Instagram ( https://o2uk.co/O2CIG), hopefully they should be able to help.
