  1. 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. 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. 3) Find and buy a deal from Tesco Mobile

    Assuming you’re ready to switch, it’s time to select a deal from Tesco Mobile and sign up for it through Uswitch.

    Tesco Mobile will, of course, conduct credit checks. But assuming you pass, you’ll then receive your phone in the post.

  4. 4) Contact Tesco Mobile to give them your PAC Code

    Now you’ll need to contact Tesco Mobile and give them your PAC Code.

    You can get in touch with Tesco Mobile’s customer support team on 0345 301 4455 (standard network rates apply).

    Opening hours are 8am-9pm Monday-Friday. 8am-8pm Saturdays and 10am-6pm Sundays.

  5. 5) Insert your Tesco Mobile SIM

    Okay, now it’s time to insert your Tesco Mobile SIM in your new phone, or in your existing phone if you bought a SIM-only deal.

    You’ll find that the number won’t have transferred straightaway. But while the transfer’s underway, you’ll be given a temporary number. So you’ll still be able to use your phone.

  6. 6) Wait for your number to be transferred to Tesco Mobile

    All being well and if a weekend doesn't get in the way, your number should be transferred the next working day. After which point, you’re good to go.
