Port your number after activation

Port your number after activation

I want to buy a new phone for my mom since she is on a flip phone.  I want to buy a phone and let her use it for awhile and when she is good with it, then port her flip phone number to the new phone.  Can I do that with Xfinity Mobile?

Re: Port your number after activation

If you only buy one phone, the answer is no. After you have activated the phone with a new number, porting another number to that phone would amount to "bring your own device", whcih Xfinity mobile doesn't support yet.

 

However, through 9/13/17, you can buy two LG X Charge for $1 each (plus taxes and fees). You can then activate a new number on one and plan to port an old number to the other. If the phone doesn't work out, you are only out a few bucks (the actual amount will depend on where you are located). You will have to cancel the services though as I read Xfinity mobile charges monthly fees and such even for phones that have not been activated.
