    I've just got my iPhone 4(woo!) I porter my number from O2 with my PAC. I've been waiting for a signal fir an hour. I believe Vodafone don't do temp numbers, does this mean I'm not going to get a signal until the porting is complete and it could take a few days? Or should it give me a signal before my number has porter?

    Any help would be much appreciated :)

    I'm the same.......Used PAC Code from o2 to go over to Voda.. I think it may take up to 4 days to transfer, until that time you will see 'no service'.

    Interestingly, I wonder what would happen if I now put an o2 micro sim into the phone while I'm waiting to port number......

    Thanks for the replies, 4 days is a long time!

    Any idea if I can add insurance over the phone?

    i'm in the same boat - bit annoying. walking around with 2 iphones now!
    the porting usually takes 2 working days - so is 4 because of the weekend.
