Get Vodafone PAC code to keep my number & transfer to VOXI network

Keep my Vodafone number

How to get a PAC code from Vodafone & transfer my number to VOXI

Contact Vodafone to request a PAC code and give notice to end your contract or account. Vodafone customer service can be reached by dialing 191 free from your Vodaphone mobile, or by calling 03333 040 191 from any other phone.

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

  • Vodafone 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 Vodafone account will remain active until your number has been ported over to your new VOXI network. After the transfer is complete, your old Vodafone account will be automatically closed.

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

Got your Vodafone PAC code?

Provide your PAC code from Vodafone to VOXI who will then be able to port your existing Vodafone 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 VOXI your Vodafone PAC code, your old Vodafone 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 VOXI

How to switch to VOXI and keep my Vodafone number?

First get your VOXI 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 Vodafone mobile phone number that you want to keep.
  • The Vodafone 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 VOXI SIM card activation.
  • You may also need the new VOXI SIM card serial number found on the back as an additional security check.

With your PAC code and mobile phone number to hand, contact the VOXI support team by dialing 191 from your new VOXI sim, or call 03333 040 191 from any other phone.

If you are switching from Vodafone or Talkmobile, you do not need a PAC code as they run on the same network. Just let them know that you want to keep your mobile number when switching to VOXI.

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 VOXI 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.
