Joining ASDA From Another Network

If you're joining ASDA Mobile from a different mobile network, you should ask your old mobile network to provide you with a PAC Code. The PAC Code will allow you to transfer your phone number to ASDA Mobile.

After getting a PAC Code from your old network, you should order your new phone or SIM card directly from ASDA's website. For more information, please select the type of tariff you're wanting to move to:

When Your New Phone Arrives...

Once your new phone or SIM card arrives from ASDA Mobile, switch it on and make sure everything's working correctly. If, for whatever reason, you need to return or change your handset or SIM card, it's best to do this before transferring your phone number.

Once you're happy to continue with the transfer, You can give the PAC Code to ASDA Mobile by calling 2732 on your ASDA Mobile handset. You can also call 0800 079 2732 from any other phone.

Once you've provided your PAC code to ASDA Mobile, your phone number transfer will normally be scheduled for the next working day (Monday to Friday only, excluding English bank holidays).

Sometimes, you’ll be given the option to provide a PAC Code at the same time as when you order your new phone or SIM card. We’d typically recommend against providing your PAC Code at this stage. Instead, waiting for the new phone or SIM card to arrive from ASDA Mobile first will allow you to make sure it’s working correctly and will make the process of cancelling or returning much easier.

  • I have not been able to top up for four days now as 2723 does not work from my phone for some unknown reason, 08000792723 also does not work from any other phones or landlines that I’ve tried.
    I’m not sure if there’s a problem with the system as they are also not replying to my emails.
    I have gone on to a contract yesterday with O2 but I can not get through to Asda for a pac code.
    If anybody from Asda can contact me with my pac code that would be great!
    Thanks

    Mandy transferred a phone number from ASDA Mobile to O2.

    • Hi Mandy,
      Many thanks for your comment. Have you tried 2732 (or 0800 079 2732 from a landline)? That should be the correct phone number for ASDA Mobile.
      Hope this helps,
      Ken

  • I am absolutely disgusted with asda mobile, i called for a pac code a couple of days ago, and only because they could not sort a problem theycreated, i only phoned tesco mobile today gave them the pac code, they disconnected me about 6 which was before tesco had time to connect me over properly after i gave them the pac code i was given. My son rang me on the housephone just now, because they have already given my number to someone else before tesco have finished transferring. What the hell are they doing. Can you offer any advice please, this is going to create so much inconvenience.

    Sue transferred a phone number from ASDA Mobile to Tesco Mobile.

    • Hi Sue,
      I’m so sorry to hear about the problems you’ve encountered moving a phone number from ASDA Mobile to Tesco Mobile. Typically, it’s the responsibility of your new mobile network if something goes wrong during a phone number transfer. However, as I understand from your message, it was slightly different in your case that ASDA Mobile cut off your phone before the transferred occurred? If so, this isn’t the typical behaviour and as such, I wouldn’t really be able to give you any detailed suggestions. The chances are you’ll need to contact ASDA Mobile Customer Support to get this issue resolved: you can reach them on 0800 079 2732.
