Switch to Page Plus and Keep Your Phone Number

Nowadays, we’re tied to our cell phone number like our social security number. We never want to lose our number, and are inclined to go off the deep end if it happens. That’s why it’s important to find a cell phone provider who makes it easy to keep your phone number when making the switch. That’s where Page Plus Cellular can help you out. Page Plus allows you to keep your phone number through a simple process called a port-in. A port-in request asks to transfer your phone number from your current provider to Page Plus.

Prior to porting to Page Plus, you need to make sure your account is in an active status with your current provider. Page Plus will not charge you for porting in; however, you will need to ask your current provider if you will incur any charges from them when porting out. Your current provider may charge you an early termination fee (ETF), or for any past-due balance on your account. But there is no need to cancel your account with your current provider – we’ll handle that in the porting process. (Cancelling your account before porting to Page Plus would cause you to lose your number, and we don’t want that!)

If you are switching from another wireless provider, the port-in request should take no more than a few hours. If you are switching from a wire line (landline) provider, it usually takes five to ten business days, but can be up to forty-five business days. Port-in requests from wire line providers may take longer than their wireless counterparts because wire line companies must go through third party account verifications and schedule a disconnect before the number can be transferred.

It’s easy to keep your number when switching to Page Plus. We know how important your phone number is to you, so let us take care of the switching process. To submit a port-in request and switch to Page Plus, click here.
