Bringing a number to Tesco Mobile from another network

If you’re joining Tesco Mobile and want to keep your existing number you need to ask for a PAC code from your old network.

Make sure the device you’ll be using works with a Tesco Mobile SIM – you might need to ask your old network provider to unlock it.

How to bring your number to Tesco Mobile

With our new text service, it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.

1. Text PORT to 23424 from the number you want to replace. It’s free from any Tesco Mobile device or SIM
2. You’ll get a text from us asking you to reply with the mobile number you want to keep and then another text asking for your PAC code
3. We’ll then text you to let you know the date it’ll happen – you’ll get this text within 24 hours to the number you told us you wanted to keep

Prefer to do it online?

Fill out our form below and it’ll be done within 2 working days. We’ll text you to let you know when it’ll happen.
