Can I keep my existing mobile number if I move to 1pMobile?

Yes, you can. It is easy to keep your current mobile number and transfer it to 1pMobile. You can transfer any mobile number from any UK mobile network. To do so, you will need to request a Porting Authorisation Code (PAC) from your current provider.

Once you have your PAC, it is valid for 30 days. In order to complete the port (transfer) you must provide the PAC to us within those 30 days.

When you have both the PAC and have received your 1pMobile SIM card, log in to your 1pMobile account and give us the details of the PAC. You can then choose the day you want the transfer to happen. This will be a minimum of 1 day in advance. You can use your 1pMobile SIM, and the SIM with the number you are porting for the time until the transfer.

On the day of transfer, your 1pMobile SIM will then be linked to your existing number. This usually only takes about two hours. In rare occasions there is a longer delay of 24 to 48 hours, and sometimes longer. In these situations we keep you regularly notified as any problems are resolved.

Please note: do not pick the day to transfer your number to us if you will be roaming outside of the UK at that time.

You can find more information on porting your number to 1pMobile by visiting the Keep your number page.
