What You Need To Change A Three Mobile Phone Number?
Before contacting the network to change your number, there are some things you need to have in place first. These will make the process seamless.
a. Active Three Mobile Service
You don’t need to have an active account or service to purchase a new SIM card pack to get a new number. But if you opt to change your number with your current SIM card, you need to have an active account and plan to complete the process.
If for any reason, your account is not active or has been suspended, contact customer support first to reactivate your account.
b. Current Number Assigned To You
The current number you want to change must be assigned to you. You can’t change a phone number that is assigned to another customer. This is the reason why the network will request you to verify your number during the number change process.
