Hello community! 

 

After 5 years with the same phone and o2 contract, I have finally bought a new phone with a reseller (Affordable Mobiles) as o2 couldn't give me as good a phone deal as AF.

So, I now have 2 contracts with o2. I'd love to keep my NEW contract and new phone, but OLD number. 
I really thought this would have been an easy process since both numbers/ contracts show on My o2. 

When I called 202, the guy was very confused, sais he "thought" I might need a PAC Code, which he will get over to me in the next 15mins. 

It's been 6 hours... and I'm still not sure about the process. So, stuck with 2 phones and 2 o2 contracts. 

I cannot find info anywhere regarding moving one contract to another, only pay as you go to contract.... 

A bit of guidance would be much appreciated! 

Many thanks

You don't need a PAC code, but you need to ask for the number to be migrated to the new contract, and you will need to pay off anything remaining on the old contract.

@SandyB If phoning O2 hasn't helped you can contact them through social media:

Facebook (https://o2uk.co/O2CFB), Twitter (https://o2uk.co/O2CTW), or Instagram (https://o2uk.co/O2CIG)

I DO NOT WORK FOR O2
