OVIVO Mobile down, starts number transfer

- Mar 21, 2014

Within the last day you might have noticed the OVIVO Mobile network is down and unlike the Everything Everywhere signal problems a few days ago, this outage will be permanent thanks to the OVIVO Mobile networking closing down for good and offering a number transfer. The UK company didn’t give any warnings before closing and just explained on the official ovivomobile.com website that the situation was “beyond” their control.

If you didn’t use this service, then in a nutshell it did things different by being a virtual network with prices starting from free. We have added a screenshot below of what the tariffs were at one point, and as you can see this allowed you to access Vodafone’s network from free.

They did make money of course, which was done through advertising appearing every so often. Today, you will see forums filled with messages from OVIVO Mobile customers complaining about the service for phones going down. This result came thanks to no warning being given and some people even handed money over within the last few hours.

How do you feel about the OVIVO Mobile network shutting down? If you were hit by this, did you have no problem getting your PAC code for a OVIVO Mobile number transfer?

The ovivomobile.com website is also gone along with social channels, although you can still see a form and the message above that explains they’ve shut down. If you want to keep your mobile phone number you used with the OVIVO Mobile network, then you need to fill out the form to get a PAC code from the official website.

We have heard from some people saying that the PAC code hasn’t come through from OVIVO Mobile “I applied for my PAC code from OVIVO Mobile, but it looks like the issue we all have now is how long it will take to get my number moved to another phone provider”, said one Product Reviews reader. The delay for a PAC code will be due to a high demand after the news that their service has shut down.

Leave a comment below if you were one of the thousands that used the OVIVO Mobile network and if you have received a PAC code, then feel free to explain how long it took to come through.
