i JUST FOUND OUT THAT IF YOU WANT TO END YOUR CONTRACT BEFORE 30 DAYS PHONE UP RETENTIONS (dial 202 ext 22) AND ASK THEM FOR A PAC CODE.
THEN TELL THEM TO SEND OUT A PAY AS YOU GO SIM (free of charge) AND WHEN THE SIM ARRIVES REGISTER IT WITH YOUR PREVIOUS SIMPLICITY CNTRACT NUMBER BY GIVING THE PAC CODE. AFTER TWO DAYS IT WILL GET YOUR OLD SIMPLICITY NUMBER & WILL END YOUR SIMPLICITY CONTRACT.

SO 48 HOURS FOR PAC TO ARRIVE AND 3 DAYS FOR SIM TO ARRIVE AND 2 DAYS FOR NUMBER TO BE TRANSPORTED TOTAL 7 DAYS & CONRACT OVER.

ALSO IF YOU HAVE A SPARE PAY & GO O2 SIM YOU DON'T HAVE TO WAIT TILL THEIR ONE ARRIVES. JUST APPLY THE PAC CODE TO YOUR OLD PAY & GO SIM.

THIS IS MY FORST DEAL SO PLEASE RATE IT VERY VERY HOT!!! THANKS

I voted hot just for your ingenuity; but I can't really see that the 30day notice is such a big deal....

I can't see how?, seems a lot of bother for very little reward

I was under the impression that OFCOM,s porting system didn't allow same network transfers using the standard PAC process. It has to be done manually by the network and because it's quite fiddly with a lot of room for error (profile issues), they generally don't do it. Apart from that, the PAC code will close the initial account when it's used, but it doesn't waive the 30 days' notice so that's likely to still be billed to the customer.

Nice try though!

That's not the point the OP was trying to make... The PAYG sim is simply a mechanism to get your current contract cancelled early. Like Guv says tho, whether or not they will charge you for the remaining period, I don't know... I did this a while back and there was no problem with me using a PAC code from O2 to O2 as Andy247 suggested there was. Couldn't be bothered to check my bills tho as I was only on the 15 sheets a month tariff at the time and so would have saved me not very much if they did waive it! If they do waive the remainder tho, then this is extremely useful if you are moving to a new contract on another network! :thumbsup:

Hi Messiah... long time no see!

Its funny that they all tell you you can't PAC from and to the same provider. Seems you've done this - and i did this also last month. (Transfering from O2 Business to Simplicity) All down to their billing system. Aparently it was the only way they could do it. Just shows when they want to do something - they can!!!!


Certainly has been mate! Seen you dotted about on a few threads I have perused since the days of the Littlewoods Scandal :thumbsup: Popped into geteven a short while back - seems you're keeping that going - good on you! I guess it all comes down to money at the end of the day, although I won't knock O2 as, for me anyway, they are by far the best operator... Top notch customer service, which means more to me than a cheap deal!

The site is still there (ready for the next breakdown!) but currently offline to deter the 1000s of new spam members it was getting every couple of weeks! Hardly difficult to know they are spam, given the circumstances!

Whilst I do have some niggles with O2, for me also, they are the best operator. CS is definately the best of the bunch and for signal in my area, no one can touch them. (Though its not obviously in all locations)

That and coupled with the 30% discount I get though my company, its difficult to turn down a 600 min, 1000 text and web bolt on for £14 per month! I did upgrade to an iPhone a month or so ago (with 30% discount) but sent it back. 3G on the iPhone was pants (though have since read they have improved it.)


Yup - have to agree about O2 3G... Not just on the iPhone either... I have a 6233 which is a 3G phone and the 3G singal on that is uber pants! So have switched it off and gone back to good old 2.5G - seems O2 3G is only good if you live in London!

I may be missing the point here, but do you not pay for the simplicity monthly cost in advance via direct debit? i.e. you pay for the nect months basic fee in the preceding month, with any out-of-allowance usage billed in arrears?
If this is the case and you switch before the end of the the 30day notice period, you are actually actively preventing yourself from using the inclusive calls / texts that you have paid for in advance.
You may be moving from simplicity to another o2 product by using your suggested method to avoid the 30day notice period, but I am not convinced you do not have to pay for the part of the 30day period you haven't used.
Could somebody expand please? Thanks.

No, it's post pay, not prepay (PAYG)

Sorry, no idea... To be honest tho, I would have thought you can move to any network - after all, a PAC is a PAC isn't it?

You will most definately be charged the remainder of the contract, although after waiting the 7 to 10 working days for your PAC code, then the three to four working days for it to be activated on your PAYG, where as you can cancel it within the first seven days anyway, regardless, although you don't get to keep the number.

The point of SIMO is to run out and then then you can take it to PAYG or continue with another 30 days and considering the prices of the SIMO it's much more worth your while to keep it.

Every time I have requested a PAC code, it has been given to me there and then - don't know where you have got this 7-10 days from...

I noticed something similar when I left voda.

I expected to have to pay the 30 days notice but as I asked for a pac code at the same time as soon as I ported to o2 it cancelled my voda sim only c ontract - they ended up paying me a small credit and no 30 days waiting lol
