Invalid PAC Code provided by iD

I transferred to iD ‘sim only’ at beginning of month and transferred my previous number successfully with PAC code provided by previous supplier.  However due to poor signal, could not use my mobile from home, so took out new contract with different network.  When I requested PAC code from iD (used both web form & 65075) was given a PAC code with prefix TSL - this being the same as that given by the initial provider for successful transfer to iD.  I have given that PAC code to my new supplier, but they tell me it is invalid, but only iD can access the correct code.  From other questions, I can see that the prefix should be VTM.  Could you please provide a valid code urgently.

Hi, I have had the same problem, I switched from Vodafone and then I found that reception was really bad in the house, so need to switch again.

I got the same PAC code from ID that I received from Vodafone when I requested it.

Could you provide a valid one please?

Hi @nathangunn,

We’re sorry to hear about that. It sounds as though the PAC code should be valid if it starts with VTM.
