MMS and other Apple services

My idea is to port my current iPhone number then move my phone from verizon to another, cheaper prepay provider
I would accept whatever number new provider gives me and use the Ooma to forward to iPhone

Will my MMS and all the iCloud services continue to work exactly like they do now?

Thanks
Bob

Port your number to the prepaid provider.

Hello

No? Reason being, Ooma is not a cell-phone data provider. Even if you have those services provided by the pre-paid carrier--your plan to have your current iPhone number ported over to Ooma then forwarded to the iPhone would have those calls be merely phonecalls with no data. The other services provided by your pre-paid carrier will continue to work fine, as expected, on "whatever number new provider gives" you. If that was the plan, then yes, you'll still get those services--just not by Ooma. You'll be getting them through the pre-paid provider. :)
