    I need a PUK code to transfer my number, is that right? Also do I have to wait for the end of my contract to ask for one or can I ask in advance? Does the code have expiry limit on it?

    It's a PAC code you need, not a PUK code. They usually expire after 30 days with most networks. You don't need to cancel your contract, the PAC code takes care of that should you use it to join another network.

    Call your current Network, ask for your PAC.

    Call the network you wish to join, advise them you wish to port your number. Provide them with your PAC.

    you also need to do it within 30 days of getting your code or your old contract will carry on in parallel with your new one, and your old number will be kept associated with your old contract.

    make sure you chase it up as O2 screwed mine up and I had to pay another 2 months on Orange before it all got sorted.

    You can ask in advance but you may have to pay off the remainder of your contract before they issue the PAC Code. Thats how Orange work anyway.

    Thats because you'll effectively be cancelling the contract. If you get the PAC code within the last 30 days of your contract there wont be any extra charge.

    Think this has run its course now, your provider will give you all the info you need when you apply for your PAC.
