Moving to Orange
If you're thinking of joining Orange from another network it's easy to keep your old number. Go ahead and order your new Orange phone, when it arrives it will have a temporary number so you can use it right away. Then call your old network to get your PAC code, with that in hand dial 150 from your mobile and ask for your number to be moved. It will take one working day to move, so if you call on Monday your old number will be on your new phone on the Tuesday.
