Porting your mobile number from Gigaclear to Three Broadband

Leaving Gigaclear

How to switch from Gigaclear and transfer my number to Three Broadband

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

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

Many of the exclusive mobile phone deals are only available online, directly from the network providers listed here. While you wait for your Port Authorization Code from Gigaclear, get the best Three Broadband offer tailored to you.

Finally, provide your PAC code to your new Three Broadband mobile network operator who will then be able to port your existing phone number from Gigaclear. 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.

How to switch to Three Broadband and keep my Gigaclear number?

The first step is to sign up with Three Broadband to get your new SIM card.

Once you have done that, ensure you have the following information ready:

  • Your original mobile phone number you want to keep.
  • The Porting Authorisation Code (PAC) from your previous Gigaclear network.
  • The expiry date of the PAC number (valid for 30 days from the date of issue).
  • The temporary mobile number from your new Three Broadband sim card.
  • You may also need the new SIM card number found on the back.

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 Three Broadband signal on your mobile phone screen. This will indicate that the transfer is complete, and you can now use your existing phone number in your new mobile network provider.
