Porting current phone numbers - some complications
I currently have three lines of service with Sprint/TMobile. I want to switch to Xfinity Mobile and bring all three numbers with me. That is the easy part, but I am concerned about some complications.
First, I want to buy two phones from Comcast because the current phones are not compatible. My daughter's IPhone 11 is compatible, but she is a thousand miles away. How do I keep her current Sprint service active while she waits for her new SIM card? Once I port the three numbers, won't all three phones stop working on Sprint? How do I work around this? I have no problem paying to keep both services active during the transition, but I am concerned that her phone will just stop working once the transfer is made if she does not have her new SIM caard.
The second complication is a little harder to explain. We have two houses and two Comcast accounts in two different names (one in my name and one in my wife's name). One house is in DC and one is in rural Maryland. The FAQ says numbers can only be ported in the same service area. Our current Sprint account is based in DC. Does this mean we can only port the numbers to our DC address? If we port the numbers to DC, must the phones we order be delivered to DC? That will be a problem because we are currently hiding out from COVID in our rural Maryland house.
Am I making all of this more complicated than it really is? I have not tried calling Xfinity Mobile to ask these questions because, well, Comcast customer service.
