No answer. Can be 5 minutes, can be days. check with both networks. Avoid busy says (holidays etc). I think they're 'supposed' to do it in a day...

Yeah, we can't really put a figure on this one.

When I ported to Tesco Mobile, it took about 1 working day.

As a general rule, networks port a number within 2/3 working days of receiving the PAC number. From my personal experience of porting numbers, the number has generally ported on a wednesday if I have sent the PAC number to the new provider over the weekend.

same network it is a matter of minutes (in my experience, o2), however networks vary only they can give you an accurate timeframe
