    No what they would make you do is start a new contract and new line. Once you decide to port your number that ends the contract.

    I'll warn you, my answer may be hazardous to your health.

    You could try calling customer service, popping over to retentions and running your scenario by them. Depending on how many months are left in the contract you may find a supervisor willing to approve it. But this call could prove very trying....
