1) Check you’re eligible to switch from VOXI
If you’re out of contract with VOXI, you’re free to switch any time you like and it won’t cost you anything.
We all know it’s very easy to lose track of your contract end date, though. The good news is that it’s also very easy to get hold of it.
You can either call VOXI's customer support team on 191 on your Voxi phone. Or on 03333 040 191 from any other phone (standard network charges apply).
Opening hours are 8am-9pm every day.
If you’re not in the mood to pick up the phone, you can also find out your contract end date by logging in to your VOXI account.
2) Contact Voxi to cancel your contract and get a PAC Code
Now’s the time to let VOXI know that you’d like to leave. You can do that using the contact numbers listed in step 1.
While you’re on the phone, you’ll also need to ask VOXI for a PAC Code. This is a short sequence of numbers and letters that you’ll need to transfer your current phone number to the network that you’re joining.
The law states that networks must provide you with a PAC Code within two hours of your request.
Once you’ve got your PAC Code, you’ve got 30 days to use it. After which point it expires and you’ll need to request a new one.
3) Find and buy a deal from giffgaff
Right, then. Confirmed you’re out of contract and ready to switch? Good news. Your next job is to choose a deal from giffgaff and sign up for it via uSwitch.
Vodafone will then run some credit checks. After you’re approved, you’ll receive your phone in the post.
4) 4 Contact giffgaff to give them your PAC Code
You can do this via giffgaff’s number transfer form.
5) Insert your giffgaff SIM card
Take the phone from its box and insert your giffgaff SIM. giffgaff advises that there will be some loss of service during the transfer process.
To check whether the giffgaff SIM is active and the transfer has been completed, it’s a good idea to turn the phone on and off during the day.
6) Wait for your number to be transferred to giffgaff
Typically, your number transfer will be completed at some point during the next working day. If a weekend gets in the way, it may take a bit longer.
