    Any mobile carrier whose sim card I can activate for free or very little?

    I want to transfer my phone number temporarily to a new sim card (of any carrier), so are there any that I can activate without paying the top up fee?

    Thanks

    I've done it before with 3.
    Registered the sim online with no credit and submitted the PAC
    Once moved I called them 2 days later and asked for a PAC citing that coverage was really poor despite the website saying different and then moved the number on.

    maybe the '3' they got free data reward sim card

    Giffgaff from memory give you £1 credit. Good thing is no messing around to get your pac code again afterwards as all done quickly online.

    ​Data reward won't allow number port in or out as it's a data sim not voice.

    ​You have to top up a giffgaff sim by £10 to activate it

    ​Make sure it's NOT a data or data reward sim, you can't port on or off these.
    Order should be for a 321 Payg sim
