Re: How can I port my number to Virgin Mobile?

Hi Phoenix, 

 

It's easy!

note: transferring your number, sometimes called 'porting' is the act of transferring your service number from one provider to another.

Before you transfer your number to Virgin Mobile Australia

We recommend you contact your existing Service Provider to find out if they'll charge you any exit fees. If they don't charge you anything, or it's an amount that you're happy to pay, then we can get started.

If you currently have phone numbers and/or any other data stored on the sim card you have with your current provider, these details/data will be lost once your service number is transferred to your new Virgin Mobile sim card.  To avoid losing these details it is recommended that you write these details down or copy them to your handset prior to requesting to transfer your number.

The name on your new Virgin Mobile account must be the same as the name of the account with your existing Service Provider - we won't be able to transfer the number.

 

We would love to have you on-board!

Hey Jimbo!

 

If you've got another phone handy you could try your SIM in there but, if you don't have another phone you can backup all your contacts by connecting your phone to your PC. What kind of phone do you have at the moment? If you let us know we might be able to help guiding you through the backup process Smiley Happy

 

Cheers,

Shane
