If you want to change mobile provider and automatically cancel your current service but you don't want to keep your mobile number, you can request a Service Termination Authorisation Code (STAC). 

You can get a STAC free of charge via one of the following channels:

  • Your online dashboard

  • By sending a text message with the word ‘STAC ddmmyy' to 75075 (the ddmmyy should be your date of birth, which you provided when creating which your online account and is needed for security reasons)

After you request a STAC, we’ll immediately send you a text message with your STAC. This message will let you know the balances on your account (for example, any credit or cash add-ons), as you won't be able to transfer those. There will also be a link to your online account, where you will find more information about your plan. You can start a chat with us online if you have any more questions and want to speak to one of the team. 

If you want to go ahead with the switch, you will have to give your STAC to your new provider. Once you have switched, your service with us for your Superdrug Mobile account will terminate and we will stop billing you for this number.

Please note: A STAC will not transfer your mobile number and once a STAC is used you will be unable to get this mobile number back. If you want to keep your mobile number, please request a PAC code instead. 

Good to know: Your STAC will be valid for 30 days. If you do not give your STAC to your new provider, your service will not switch, and you will continue to be billed.
