Keep My Mobile Number.

Want to keep your old mobile number?
It's called porting in, and it's quick and easy.

Over the Easter period, transferring your number over to iD (porting-in) will take a little longer than usual. Below is our Easter port-in schedule.

What do I need before I get started?

1. A PAC code.

If you haven't done so already, call your old network and ask for your PAC code.

2. Your phone number.

This is the mobile number you want to keep.

3. The iD app or online account.

Register online for My Account, or download the iD Mobile App, if you haven't already done so.

How do I keep my number?

Follow these four easy steps:

Your number should be transferred within 1-2 working days, depending on the time of day you submitted your request. If it was after 5pm, it takes 2 working days.

Please note: porting in doesn't interrupt your iD Mobile connection. You can use it as normal while we process your request.
