Question

Port number from someone else’s account


Hello, I’d like to port my wife’s phone number to my account. Her account is in her name and mine is in my name. Once her number is ported I will do a transfer of ownership of my account into her name. Will this have any affect on the port?

Do a transfer of ownership from your account straight into hers. Condition: your account has to be older than 90 days.

I want her to have my plan because it’s better than hers. I’d have to transfer my account into her name and the port her number to it?

A better option would be to transfer your number into her account and do a number swap between lines.

You can't do a number swap between accounts it's impossible. As soon as a number leaves an account t that account is automatically closed.

Are you saying you want both accounts to be active after everything and just switch numbers or you just want one account activate in the end but with the other number?

Transfer the ownership of your account to her possession. She will have two accounts, and you none. Port her current number to her new account. Done.

But you can't do a straight port so you'd be better just porting her number out to prepaid (you'll have to set up a prepaid account) then port it from prepaid back to your postpaid account. Her old account will be automatically closed and she will have her number on your account.

Once you have both numbers in one account then call CS and ask to speak with some in in Loyalty to cancel one line. They can cancel your line, then change the number with your wife's - so she can have her number, her device but your plan. You will be charged a service fee of $10+tax, but also need to get the right and willing CS and Loyalty Agent.
