Okay @Terry Baker, your number will be transferred on the switch date you selected, sometime between 8am - 10pm.

You’ll know iD Mobile have started working on your port, when your old provider’s SIM card becomes inactive.

Unfortunately, UK mobile number transfers don't happen immediately. When I switched over to iD, the number I wanted to keep stopped working around 11am, but my port wasn’t finished until ~3pm.

Hi @Terry Baker 


Number transfers take place between 8am and 10pm on the date they’re scheduled.
