Transferring to Talk

Will I keep my number?


In some extreme cases this might not be possible. In the event of this, we'll contact you to discuss your options before starting the transfer.


How will the handover from my current supplier be arranged if I sign up?

Switching to Madasafish Talk is easy. Once you sign up, we'll contact your current supplier to request a transfer. Most providers are likely to send you a letter to confirm that they've received the transfer request and let you know the final invoice you need to pay.

It takes around 10-14 days to complete a transfer.
