PAC code provided is invalid


Userlevel 1

Hi there. Am hoping you can help me. I requested a PAC code after transferring my number to iD but then realising the signal is not good in my area. However, the PAC code I have received (with the prefix TEL) is invalid according to my new provider. Also, I requested the PAC code on May 8, but was told in the PAC text message I received that it expired on May 5, so I’m thinking maybe the previous PAC code has been sent to me.

Could you please arrange for me to be sent a new and valid PAC code? I will try to access the Live Chat tomorrow morning but wanted to post on here in case I can’t get through. If this is resolved through chat then I’ll post up on here accordingly.

Many thanks in advance :slight_smile:

Hi @andy p,

Is your old number still showing up when you call out?

Did the store provide any confirmation that it was processed?

Hi @Jonhj,

 

I see we’ve now dropped you a Private Message regarding this.

Hi There, having the exact same issue. Filled in the form online 2 days ago and it said it had been submitted successfully. It hasn't changed over so I tried again via the iD app where it said the PAC code was invalid.

 

Would really like help on this to avoid my current network charging me extra as my contract is up in 2 days.

Thanks.

Hi 

I used the live chat and they sorted it there and then https://www.idmobile.co.uk/live-chat you have to go through so automated stuff first but then I got through to an agent the first was rubbish and told me to speak to T Mobile for some reason, second was great. Give it a go

I'm having the same issue as Jem, filled in the form online but never got a text to confirm. I've been waiting all day for it to transfer so I tried again on the app but it's telling me the number or pac code is invalid. I've triple checked but still no luck. Please help.

Thanks.
