    I’m interested in your £1.50pm sim only deal as I don’t want to use any data but how do I keep the number I already have?

      Hi Eric,

      Thanks for getting in touch. I hope all is well with you. 😃

      Just a quick note Eric, you have reached Finder, a comparison website. We don’t represent Lycamobile. With that being said, you can keep your number even after switching to a new provider. What you need to do is get in touch with your current provider and request a Porting Authorisation Code (PAC). This is a numerical code that you must then give to your new provider. Please note that the PAC is only valid for 30 days.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Joshua

    I am going for 22 days to PERU, BOLIVIA, ARGENTINA & BRAZIL and want a Data Pack mainly, though some calls to and from uk would be useful but not essential. Can you recommend a suitable provider and alternatives.
    Thank you.

      Hi J,

      Thanks for your question.

      For Lycamobile, you can register your SIM for auto-top-up. You also have the option to top-up just when you need it.

      Cheers,
