Just curious - how do I know when my transfer has completed? Will the number in the accounts tab change (automatically)?
Just sent you a PM!
I’d be interested to know the answer too please.
I’ll send you a message and your number will change in-app
EDIT: for some context, we get notifications when it’s done, we just haven’t wired that up to push notifications (yet – it’ll happen).
The number associated to the SIM will indeed change (and you’ll get a notification in the form of a support message). Note that the initial name of a SIM is its phone number but that one won’t change so don’t get confused.
Well, I requested my PAC from EE. They asked me to call them back to let them know if I wasn’t going to use it working 30 days so they could reuse it.
Never heard this before.
They may be running out – EE’s PAC’s start ‘ONE’ followed by 6 numbers, so they only have 1 million combinations. And with a lot of people possibly testing the new switching messages…
Ah, so it is a thing rather than sales nonsense.
Couldn’t they have an extra prefix since they are such a large operator to get around the problem?
I don’t see why not… Porting in the UK is handled by Syniverse, and I’m not sure what their relationship looks like. ‘ZEV’ or ‘ZVL…’ would look good some day.
Erm, you don’t want people leaving
I agree, although we’ll do our best and it’ll still happen…
I just used the in app facility. Initially it said it couldn’t switch the number and to send a message and very shortly after it said the switch should happen in 2 days.
