From 1st July 2019, pulling a Switcheroo is now a whole lot easier!
Why? Because Ofcom, the communications regulator, has made it a lot simpler for consumers to switch mobile networks.
The first thing you need for switching is a PAC or STAC code. You’ll now be able to get one of these quickly by text – see below. You can also get one through your online account or by phoning your existing network.
Its the code your new network needs if you want to switch network & KEEP your existing number. Text PAC to 65075 to get your PAC code within 60 seconds.
Its the code your new network needs if you want to switch network, take a NEW number and cancel your old contract. Text STAC to 75075 to get your STAC code within 60 seconds.
- Your new phone or SIM from Carphone Warehouse
- Existing mobile number
- Temporary mobile number (You can find this on the Invoice which is delivered with the phone or SIM)
- PAC or STAC code
Still thinking about switching? Text to find out if you’re eligible and if any charges will apply. Text INFO to 85075 from your current network.
Need some help? We can help request your PAC or STAC for you and also guide you through the rest of the switching process. Feel free to ask by calling 0800 049 6250 or visting one of our stores.
If you are still in contract with your current provider, any outstanding fees will need to be paid. These will be billed on your usual Direct Debit date, not on the day you switch.
Your Direct Debit will cancel automatically after any outstanding fees have been taken.
Requesting your PAC or STAC code does not complete the full switch. It needs to be given to your new network provider, which we can help you with at Carphone Warehouse.
