Question

Can I transfer mobile account from parent to child once they reach 18


Signed up to ID mobile account for my daughters phone few years before she was 18. Now she's 19 and wants to take on the account and pay for it directly from her own bank.  Is this possible.  She doesn't want to lose the number she has currently and doesn't like hassle 😅

Hey @Olderbutwiser,

PAC codes can’t be used when given to the same network and the number isn’t able to be transferred directly to a different plan, the only way around this would be to port the number to a different network and then back to the new iD Mobile plan.

Thank you. Would it be possible for her to take the existing mobile number from me once she creates a new account. i.e. Could my daughter open her own account and then use a PAC number I give her from my account so she retains the number she has grown accustomed to having. As I said initially, she doesn’t want to lose the mobile number she currently has use of.

Hello @Olderbutwiser,

Unfortunately changing the name of the account owner to reflect your daughter's name would not be possible, she would need to sign up for her own contract.

Kind regards,
Ryan
