You can port to us without losing your old number. Just follow these easy steps:
- Buy any Cell C starter pack and do NOT open it
- RICA your SIM card
- SMS #portme#serialnumber# (note: this is the RICA serial number of your new Cell C SIM) to 084 767 8287 from your MTN, Vodacom or Virgin Mobile SIM card
- You will receive two confirmation SMSs within two hours on your MTN, Vodacom or Virgin Mobile SIM
- Wait 24 hours until your MTN, Vodacom or Virgin Mobile SIM card stops working
- Then you can insert your new Cell C SIM card and recharge to start making calls
If you activate your new Cell C SIM card before following the steps above, you will not be able to use it to port your number.
