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.
And if you’re interested in switching but want a bit more information first, text INFO to 85075.
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. To do this, just text PAC to 65075 to get your PAC code. It’s this short, alphanumeric code that will enable you to transfer your existing phone number to the network you want to join. You don't even need to make a phone call.
If you'd prefer to speak to somebody, just give VOXI a call, tell them you'd like to leave and request your PAC code.
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 SIM from Lebara Mobile
Confirmed you’re out of contract? Okay, that’s all to the good. Now your job is to pick a SIM only deal from Lebara Mobile and sign up for it through Uswitch.
Once you’ve done that, Lebara will carry out some credit checks. After which point, you’ll be sent your SIM card in the post.
4) Contact Lebara Mobile to give them your PAC Code
The next item on your to-do list is to ring Lebara Mobile to give them your PAC Code.
The customer support team can be reached on 020 3059 0304 (standard network rates apply). Opening hours are 9am-5pm every day.
5) Insert the Lebara Mobile SIM in your phone
Next up, unlock the SIM tray on your phone with a pin-key and insert your Lebara Mobile SIM card.
Your number won’t be transferred straightaway. But you’ll be given a temporary number while the transfer is underway, so you’ll still be able to use your phone.
6) Wait for your number to be transferred to Lebara Mobile
Typically, number transfers are complete the next working day. But this may vary from network to network.
It’s also worth noting that if a weekend gets in the way, it could take a little longer.
