How to transfer/port a number from another carrier to US Mobile
Moving your phone number to a new service provider can be a pain, but with US Mobile, it's super simple. As a part of the sign-up process, you port (or transfer) your original phone number, but there are a few things you'll need to know before getting started.
How to transfer your phone number to US Mobile
- Get your current account information. You'll need your account number, account PIN, and billing zip code. You may need to call your current carrier for this information.
- Your number needs to be active. Don't cancel your current service until you finish setting up on US Mobile.
- You need a SIM card from US Mobile if you are bringing your own phone. Complete the process on US Mobile's site to get one. Use the code ANDCLW to get $2 off the Starter Kit!

- Follow the steps on the site to set up your account. You will need a data connection or Wi-Fi for this process.
- After you confirm your phone will work on the service, US Mobile will ask if your want to transfer your number.

Still can't compete with my 55+ plan from T-Mobile. I got mine back when it was still $60.00 per month for two lines WITH all taxes and fees included AND unlimited everything! Just sayin!
