LYCAMOBILE MAKES IT EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO PORT OUT OF THEIR NETWORK!!
Lycamobile focuses on how to get your business but then they will sabotage every one of your attempts to leave their network and port your number to another carrier.
First of all, their customer service number gets routed to India where apathetic representatives are quick to give you a rude response. Secondly, they've conveniently (for them) refused to establish contracts with other major networks so you can NOT port your number to O2, Vodafone, 3, or T-Mobile. And lastly, their porting team often sends incomplete messages/codes to your new network so you'll suffer with split service where you can make outgoing calls on your new network, but still get incoming service on Lycamobile. This is due to incompetent staff and/or unethical business practice of not cooperating with customers' ports.
**Service representatives from multiple networks have confirmed that they have the most problems with ports from Lycamobile.**
AVOID LYCAMOBILE AT ALL COSTS!!
