What is an EE PAC code?

Customers of mobile phones can transfer or port their current EE mobile phone number from EE to another mobile phone network while keeping their current EE mobile phone number by using EE PAC Codes. This process is also called EE porting authorization code. The procedure is known as mobile number portability or MNP. To complete this process, you need an EE PAC Code.

How to get your PAC code from EE

Ofcom introduced text-to-switch in July 2019, making your PAC code easy to get by using text-to-switch. You can receive and use your PAC code while changing mobile phone providers by using text-to-switch. You do not need to call your current provider any longer. The text-to-switch website has comprehensive instructions.

There are three ways to obtain an EE PAC Code:

Getting your PAC Code from My EE using online

  • Log into the My EE website
  • Go to Menu
  • Go to Account Settings
  • Go to Leave EE

Get My EE PAC through Text Messaging

  • By Text Message: you can get an EE PAC Code sent to you through SMS. Text PAC to 65075 to receive a PAC Code from EE

Get My EE PAC through Phone Call

  • Through Phone: by calling My EE on 150 using their Phone. You can receive a PAC Code or dial 07953 966 250 from any phone during EE's opening hours.

You can sign up for a new contract with a different mobile network before receiving your PAC Code from EE, but you shouldn't cancel your EE mobile phone contract until you've done both. Your current EE mobile phone number could be cancelled if you don't follow this rule. EE PAC Codes are free.

EE PAC code: transfer your Phone from your old provider

If switching from another mobile network to EE, you should request a PAC Code from your previous network. You can transfer your number to EE with the PAC Code.

After receiving a PAC Code from your previous network, you should order your new Phone or SIM straight from EE's website.

You can choose the type of tariff you want to shift from the listed tariff below for further details: iPhone, Pay Monthly, SIM Only, Free SIM, Samsung Galaxy, and Pay As You Go.

Once you receive your new Phone or SIM from EE, please turn it on to check that everything is operating as it should. Before changing your phone number, it is best to return or replace your Phone or SIM if you need to.

Once you're ready to move through with the transfer, you should enter your PAC Code using EE's web form. By dialling 150 from your EE phone, you can also provide EE with the PAC Code. From any other phone, you can dial 07953 966 250.

You can switch from EE through a phone call by requesting the following;

  • An ee port number (PAC) that allows you to preserve your current mobile number when you switch
  • When switching, a STAC to update your phone number
  • Switching information to learn more about your plan and whether you must make any more payments
