I just bought a new Nokia 3587 for Simple Freedom. I was under the impression that any number can be ported regardless of prepaid or contract. I am currently with Verizon and my contract is up. I really want to keep my existing number because I am looking for a new job and I have sent out resumes with my current cell number. Simple Freedom customer sevice tells me that they can't switch my number and I have to call Verizon. I also checked with Alltel customer service and they tell me that my number cannot be switched unless it is to a new contract plan. I was also told this a Verizon salesperson. I thought cell carriers were required to let me keep my number under the FCC rules. I am looking at the Tracfone website and it looks like I can switch easily with them. Does anyone what the situation is with number portability on Simple Freedom and Verizon prepaid? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
