The system needs to update, and the PAC system only process on business days. So request PAC from Three (send text 'PAC' to 67075), give the PAC and existing number to Asda on Monday (by phone - 2732 from the Asda SIM, as no online form yet), it should transfer on Tuesday. Wait until Wednesday and request PAC from Asda (text 'PAC' to 67075), complete the form on the Three website/app and your number should be back with Three on Thursday. HTH

Is it easy enough to switch Three to Three for this? Also, can I cancel my current plan online if their call centres are closed? Have always done so over the phone

You can just request pac code that would cancel it and allow you to port..

Should be the same as mostly automated - ASDA PAYG sim can be useful for this. I say ASDA as some of the other "free" sims insist on a top up to activate them, Asda doesn't.

Ahh man, just ordered this from fonehouse the other day
Too much hassle. Cold.
I used to have Three for my mobile broadband and their signal was dire.
Now with BT and Vodafone for my mobile.
3 are crap. Dont do it to yourself.
They always seem to hide behind the excuse of the network being over congested or over utilised.
Currently getting around 2meg on their 4g+.
Pathetic.

Was a bit of a hassle when I did it a couple of months back. I ordered the new sim and they told me to keep using my old one and not use the new one to keep my number. They updated the plan but didn't cancel the new sim plan like they said. Ended up sorting it out in the end but it cost me an extra 8 quid...
Three's poor customer service, who pretend to escalate long standing issues, such as a negative PAYG balance(!) and woeful app that won't even allow you to log in are 2 good excuses not to go to Three. The only three I've dealt with recently is moving my, my wife's phone and our spare phone to O2. Better signal, great customer support and an app that actually works (and on WiFi)

I did this same deal with fonehouse the other day. I just contacted three on live chat yesterday, cancelled my current contract sim (it's at the end of its contract this month) I then just activated the new sim afterwards.

I've had no issues. Used the same bank, email and information. The guy on live chat said it should be fine as normally it's a seperate account anyways for each number/SIM.

Edit: I will add, I don't care about my current number and porting it over, I wanted a fresh new number. Obviously if you want to keep that number then you need to do it a different way.

Thanks, heat added.
Hopefully the switch to Three goes smoothly
People complain about three speed, it's been pretty good for me for the last 6 months

When I do a speed test its nearly always over 100mb, that's faster than my home broadband.

If you don't need your existing number, you can use code STAC to send to another network and cancel your existing contract. Request from Three by sending text STAC DDMMYYYY to 75075 (DDMMYYYY is your dob). You then give the STAC to your new network - if you are going back to Three you can use ASDA or another free PAYG - or indeed anyone else's existing non-Three sim as it costs nothing .

I think they still hold you to 30 days notice (and fee) if you call to cancel. Use the new STAC process (like PAC, just it kills the existing contract rather than transfer) and your contract ends the next day. HTH

Absolutely! you can. It was what I was going to do, but when the ASDA sim didnt turn up after 3 days I just went on live chat, told them to cancel the current sim. I then activated the new one after. Seems to have worked fine for me, was no need in the end to use a STAC etc. The guy I spoke to said it would be fine also.

They've just set it to cancel at the end of the month (when my contract ends) with my final payment for the month of £11 which was my monthly charge. If I used a STAC it would've been around £7 as would've ended a bit sooner but I honestly don't care about the extra £4 to save me the hassle of activating an ASDA sim etc. calling them.

I had the most awful experience with Three. Wanted to switch from EE to EE through Three. Switched to Three but can't get the PAC from them. Then for 10 days I kept requesting my PAC texting to 67075 without a response. All their support in located in India and all offices are closed. The only way to get in touch with them is through their chat portal. Last time they had 100 people in the queue (I guess at 100 they don't add people to the queue anymore). Finally got to chat with somebody and they could not find my phone number in their database (despite my being able to make calls on Three and having £5 credit). Same story for another four days. I just gave up and will wait the covid19 storm calms down.
My advice is to do not get involved with Three at this time.

Ah, sorry to hear! I’ve already ordered this, have a spare non three sim, hopefully I’ll have better luck and it can all be done offline, already have my PAC from current sim, although maybe I should wait until things pick up to normal?

Defo want to keep my own number, hopefully it’s just as easy a process moving Three (sim only) to Three (sim only) via ASDA (PAYG)

Any tips so I don’t get caught out? Aware I’m unable to get anyone on the phone in this current climate
Anyone used affordable mobiles before ?
Stupid question: I assume I need to wait to receive the sim from Tesco before I can order this deal...which could possibly mean the deal may expire before I receive it?
Anyone knows about the cashback? I got this after ordering:

a) your first five airtime bills (where your first bill is the first correspondence from
your network requesting ANY payment) and your first claim voucher within 60
days of the invoice date on your 5th airtime bill;

b)your 6th and 7th airtime bills and your second claim voucher within 60 days of
the invoice date on your 7th airtime bill;

c)your 8th and 9th airtime bills and your third claim voucher within 60 days of the
invoice date on your 9th airtime bill;

d)your 10th, 11th and 12th airtime bills and your fourth claim voucher within 60
days of the invoice date on your 12th airtime bill.

Does it mean that the £48 is not cashback, it is £48 voucher and will be credited back four times in 12 months? Thank you.
I would like to know that 👆too. I would hate to get this offer thinking it’s cashback only to find out it’s some kind of voucher :/

I don't know what affiliate link you are referring to, but Quidco and TopCashback use affiliate links to generate and track cashback. No code is used. Both say cashback for 12 month sim only. The offer is available directly on the Affordable Mobiles website, with the £48 cashback by redemption offer. Feel free to go direct if you wish, I have bought via the cashback site and will happily chance it (the only thing I am chancing is getting £25+ extra on top of the deal mentioned :/ ). The sim has already turned up, with the redemption vouchers, and cashback has tracked .

If you use this link to get the £48 cashback how would quidco or topcashback be able to track it for extra cashback thorough them?
