General Tips for Porting Your Phone Number to Page Plus

Did you know you can switch to Page Plus and keep your current phone number? Page Plus allows you to keep your number through a simple process called a port-in. Here’s how to do it:

  • Don’t terminate your existing service. Your old operator account must be active at the start of the port. Porting will automatically close your old account. If you cancel service before the port completes, your account will be closed prematurely and you will lose your number.
  • Gather the information you need. All carriers require a minimum amount of information needed: the number you are porting and the account number and a PIN or password. Most also ask for the account holder’s name and billing address.
  • Initiate a number port with the carrier you are switching to. Most carriers let you do a port online. A few require you to call.
  • Ports usually complete within 24 hours, often in an hour or less. During the porting process there may be a short period, usually less than five minutes, when neither phone works. Please allow up to three (3) hours before contacting customer service to check the status of your port.

    I just bought an iPhone 5s (unlocked, previously used with Verizon) in order to save money and use one of prepaid plans ($30) since my current iphone 4 is on att system and I learned in a previous chat that it can not be used with pageplus. Now, I heard a bomb, pageplus does not support iPhone 5s?!! It has Verizon set up!

    Just purchase Samsung ACE and called to “port” my old verizon number to this phone and was told it would take 120 DAYS…so where are you getting the 24 hours from??? And to add insult to injury…the phone when plugged in to charge is showing that the battery is at 100%, so it will not charge, but it is deader than a doornail. Will let it sit on the charge overnight to see if that makes a difference ( as I would be shocked that the battery would come fully charged…) and if it is still DOA, will give support a call, but I DO question what you are saying about porting…I just decided to end my Verizon service and activate with the number they sent me (yeah, if the phone ever works…)

    As of October 2, 2014 the iphone 5, 5C, 5S, 6 and 6 Plus can be used on the PagePlus Network, as I currently use Iphone 5S Verizon.
    I am also a Toledo, OH dealer. Best of luck, Sir!

    I have a flashed 4g lte HTC Rezound when I change (unflash it from 3g back to 4g) to 4g, what is the best time in my monthly ($29.95) plan do I need to make the change so I do not lose my minutes, texts and data. And if 4g is not available where I live, how does that affect the reception and data transmission? Also will I have the mms problems that many users have when using a 4g flashed to 3g?

    Do you have to purchase Page Plus Sim card or will my Verizon work?

    I have a AT&T Samsung S3. Can I keep that phone and insert a PagePlus SIM card to switch to PasgePlus service?
