Keeping same mobile number when transferring to new SIM card with Three from Three

9
Found 6th Nov 2017
Hello all,

I hope someone can answer this please?

I am currently with Three, at the end of my contract. Sim only, Pay Monthly. I requested and recieved my PAC number a couple of weeks ago.

I have ordered the great deal through Quidco - the 12 month Sim only deal which will effectively (after cashback) work out at £7.41 per month for 12gb Advanced plan.

A few years ago when I bought new sim on same provider, I had to temporarily port my number to another provider on a PAYG sim, and then port back to initial provider.

Is this still the case please, or will Three just transfer my number to the new sim?

Hope that all makes sense, and thank you in advance if you can help.

When I did this, I told them what I was doing and they converted my old contract SIM to payG then ported the number to the new SIM themselves

Might be worth calling up and telling them your situation so they can organise it for you? was very easy.

Thank you. New sims arrive in a couple of days, so I'll contact and ask Three then.

Thanks. I'll try direct with Three first as Sharp 7 mentions, but if they are not co-operative, will do your idea.
Thank you.

Thanks. Will do.
Thank you to all who have replied.

Three are transferring my contract to PAYG in a couple of days. I will then call them to transfer back to pay monthly (year contract) sim that I bought.
