How to Request a PAC for ZOIKO: Essential for Number Transfer

When you're looking to transfer your existing mobile number to ZOIKO, you'll need to obtain a PAC (Porting Authorisation Code) from your current mobile provider. This PAC is a crucial element in the process of transferring your number, and it ensures a smooth transition to ZOIKO. Here's a detailed guide on how to request a PAC for ZOIKO:

Step 1: Contact Your Current Mobile Provider

To initiate the process, get in touch with your current mobile provider. You can usually do this by calling their customer service or visiting their website. Inform them that you intend to transfer your number to ZOIKO and request a PAC. They are legally obligated to provide you with the PAC promptly.

Step 2: Receive Your PAC

Once you've made the request, your current mobile provider will generate a PAC for your number. They will provide you with this unique code, typically via text message, email, or a written letter. Make sure to keep this code in a safe place, as you'll need it to complete the transfer.

Step 3: Note the Expiry Date

PACs come with an expiry date, usually valid for 30 days. It's essential to be aware of this expiration date. You must provide the PAC to ZOIKO within this time frame for the number transfer to be successful. If the PAC expires, you'll need to request a new one from your current provider.

Step 4: Share Your PAC with ZOIKO

Now that you have your PAC, log in to your ZOIKO account. There, you'll find an option to enter your PAC to begin the number transfer process. ZOIKO will guide you through the rest of the steps to complete the transfer, which typically involves activating your ZOIKO SIM.

Step 5: Complete the Transfer

This process may take a short amount of time, usually within a few hours, but it can take up to 2 working days in some cases.
