You need to ask Verizon? Porting away your number could be considered canceling your contract which could make you liable for the early termination fee.

After porting number over, your cell phone service will go dead. At that point, call Verizon and have them assign you another number. If you are under contract, any early termination fee will be waived as long as you keep the service going with another number.

IBMofo... Have you actually done this ?

I called Verizon and the representative I spoke with said that I should:

1. Add a new line (with no phone)
2. Have the number ported, thus cancelling with no early termination fee
3. Have the new line number activated on the old phone.

Thoughts ?

Thank you.

You will have to convert to a more expensive plan to add a line right?

No need to do that. Just make sure your service stays active while porting is happening.

I've done this before. Just let the account close. If you owe early termination, they'll charge it. When you call back and say, didn't mean to close out the account, just wanted to get the number ported, they give you a new number and then they waive the early termination.
