Port to Xfinity Mobile without adding another cell phone?

I have a strange question...

I want to know if it is possible to port a landline number from Xfinity Voice to Xfinity Mobile without a cell phone.

I have 2 cell phones / cell numbers with Xfinity Mobile now. 

The cost is $35 for 2GB shared between 2 lines.  There is no cost for the 2 lines because I have Xfinity Internet. 

I just want to hold the number in Xfinity Mobile for a week. 

Do I need to purchase another cell phone in order to do this?

Thanks

Scott

Thanks for reaching out, sferrell615! Yes, you need to port the number to another cell phone. It isn't possible to port a number to nowhere, it has to have a destination.

No it's not possible... but you can port it to Google voice. It'll cost you 20 bucks but small price to pay to save your number.

@sferrell615 @tuffigirl According to this info, you cannot port a landline to Google Voice. It needs to be ported to a mobile carrier first. https://support.google.com/voice/thread/202814882/how-can-i-move-a-landline-number-to-google-voice?hl=en

If you have a later model iPhone, they have 2 eSIM slots. You could possibly port it in that way.

Thanks, everyone. 

I'll look into a cheap cell phone to port to.
