Yes you can keep your old number you have to tell them beforehand that you want to keep it

Yes, Just request a PAC code (porting authorisation code) from Tesco telling them you wish to transfer your old mobile number to your new handset from TalkTalk and then let TalkTalk know that this is how you want the SIM set up. TalkTalk will ask you for your PAC code which Tesco provide you with. Just make sure the PAC code (usually valid for 1 month around time of transfer) is eligible to be used when you get your estimated "go live" date from TalkTalk.( this is the time when the new handset can be switched on and registered with TalkTalk's network provider for mobile services, it happens that Vodafone provide the cellular network coverage for Talkmobile so coverage is usually very good). If all goes well you'll be a very happy Bunny just like I was.(And also a bit richer every month)

All mobile providers have the facility to transfer a customers number to another network. Best for you to check you do not have any commitments to fulfill on Tesco mobile (if you have a contract) before making the move. Most will transfer your number in 3 to 5 days. Also use up any remaining minutes on Tesco mobile as this will not be transferred. Just need a PAC code from Tesco mobile to do the transfer.
