Porting your mobile number from SMARTY

Leaving SMARTY

How to switch from SMARTY & transfer your mobile number

Log in to your SMARTY account. From the dashboard click on the menu icon and select Account settings. Then follow the instructions to request your PAC code. Also ensure that you turn off automatic payments if it is enabled.

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

  • SMARTY will provide your Porting Authorisation Code (PAC) either over the phone, by SMS text message or via email.
  • A PAC code 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 SMARTY account will remain active until your number has been ported over to the new network. After the transfer is complete, your SMARTY account will be automatically closed.

Many of the top mobile phone deals are available exclusively online, directly from the network providers listed here. So once you have received your Port Authorization Code from SMARTY, get the best offer suited to you.

Finally, provide your PAC code to your new mobile network operator who will then be able to port your existing phone number from SMARTY. They will tell you what day the transfer is due to take place (usually within 48 hours).

Important: Do NOT cancel your contract before switching, otherwise you may lose your existing phone number and be unable to port it over. Once you provide your new network provider with your PAC code, your old account will be clsoed automatically once the 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 before porting your number.
