    Hey I managed to sell my iPhone 3G and was excited on getting new iPhone 4 today :D then I phoned Apple, they have none in stock and nor do O2 ::(: Just Orange and Tescos :confused:

    I am willing to switch carriers to get an iPhone 4 but I have only ever had 1 iPhone and never had to upgrade :confused: lol do i have to cancel my O2 first before the other phone? Id like to keep my number :)

    If you want to keep your number you need to get a PAC code from O2. Check their website or google it... You give this code to your new carrier, and it allows them to transfer the number across carriers and SIM cards. It is not instant though, so you should get it underway right now!
    Might be worth checking with o2 again, to see when they expect stock. It may be only a few days, and therefore you might be just as well to order it and wait, as keeping your number whilst switching carriers is not an immediate thing...

    Can't you upgrade online with O2? They sell them online now anyway...

    If your at the end of your contract, just request your PAC code. When you sign Up with a new contract, give them the PAC code to transfer your number.

    Once your number transfers it automatically ends your old contract

    o2 do have stock (every friday stock comes in). speak to the retentions department, they say 5-7days delivery due to weekly deliveries.

    They told me I need to have the new sim in the phone and the phoned turned off all day wednesday to transfer the number :eek:

    does it really matter if its in the phone and turned off? i mean if the phones off its the same as having sim lying out right? :confused:

    Yes, pretty much.
    Have the sim in the phone and the phone turned off doesnt make much sense.
    They can do the transfer either way if the phone is on or off.

    I think its just a standard practise they say to anyone just incase they are using the SIM to make a call when the transfer is taking effect :confused:
