Keep my FreedomPop number

How to get a PAC code from FreedomPop & transfer my number to The Phone Co-op

To port your FreedomPop number out, request a PAC by contacting FreedomPop customer service on 0113 8870 823 or +44 11 3887 0823 from abroad. Alternatively, you can contact FreedomPop online. A customer service representative will then generate a PAC number, and follow up with your code, once it's available.

If you wish to use the 'text-to-switch' service, simply SMS text PAC to 65075 free from your FreedomPop SIM to get your FreedomPop PAC code by text message and begin the porting process.

  • FreedomPop will provide your PAC code (Porting Authorisation Code) either by SMS text message, via email, or over the phone if you contact them.
  • A PAC number is valid for 30 days. If you don't use it within thirty days it will expire and you will need to request a new one.
  • Your FreedomPop account will remain active until your number has been ported over to your new The Phone Co-op network. After the transfer is complete, your old FreedomPop account will be automatically closed.

While you wait to get your FreedomPop PAC code, find the best The Phone Co-op online offer for you. Many of these exclusive mobile phone deals are only available online, directly from the network providers listed here.

Got your FreedomPop PAC code?

Provide your PAC code from FreedomPop to The Phone Co-op who will then be able to port your existing FreedomPop number. They will tell you what day the transfer is due to take place (usually within 48 hours).

Important: Do NOT cancel your SIM only or mobile contract before switching, otherwise you may lose your current phone number and be unable to port it over. Once you give The Phone Co-op your FreedomPop PAC code, your old FreedomPop billing account will be closed automatically when your mobile phone number is successfully ported over.

Note: Credit on Pre-Pay / PAYG (Pay-As-You-Go) accounts cannot be transferred over and so any remaining credit balance will be lost after the switch is complete. If you have any credit left, one good option is to donate it to a charity by SMS text message before porting your number.

Transfer my number to The Phone Co-op

How to switch to The Phone Co-op and keep my FreedomPop number?

First get your The Phone Co-op package and activate your new SIM card.

Once you have done that, get the following information ready to follow the step-by-step instructions:

  • Your old FreedomPop mobile phone number that you want to keep.
  • The FreedomPop PAC code (Porting Authorization Code) from your previous network.
  • The expiry date of the PAC number (valid for 30 days from the date of issue).
  • The temporary mobile number from your new The Phone Co-op SIM card activation.
  • You may also need the new The Phone Co-op SIM card serial number found on the back as an additional security check.

Contact The Phone Co-op on 01608 434 000 or fill out the customer services form form to provide your PAC (Port Authorisation Code) from your previous mobile network provider.

Please note that they ask for at least 5 working days notice before your PAC expires to transfer your number to them.

Note: You may lose network service for a short period on the day of transfer. If this happens, turn your phone off and on occasionally, until you see the The Phone Co-op signal on your mobile phone screen. This will indicate that the transfer is complete, and you can now use your old phone number in your new mobile network provider.
