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 new phone or SIM deal from Three
Out of contract and ready to switch? Good news. Your next task is to sign up for a new phone contract or SIM only deal from Three. Once you’ve passed Three’s credit checks, you’ll receive your phone in the post.
4) Contact Three to give them your PAC code
We’re almost there now. Next you’ll just to ring Three to give them your PAC. You can reach their customer support team on 0333 338 1001 from a landline (standard network rates apply).
5) Insert your new Three SIM card
If you got a new phone as part of your contract, take the pin-key included in the box and unlock the handset's SIM tray. Then insert your Three SIM card.
If you went for a SIM-only deal instead, you can just put the Three SIM in your existing phone.
While the number transfer is taking place, you’ll be given a temporary phone number that you can use and on which people can contact you.
6) Wait for your number to be transferred
The transfer should be complete the next working day. However, this can vary from network to network and sometimes depends on whether the day after you make your call is a working day or a weekend.
