port out number then get a new number

Postby kenstrguy1 » Thu Nov 14, 2019 9:13 pm

would like to know if i could port out my tracfone number that i have had for years to google voice or other voip. however, i would need to get a new number for that tracfone without losing minutes,data, texts.
so is the original number tied to a plan? is this possible if so what's the cost of doing it.

would it be simpler/easier just to buy a inexpensive tracfone with a short plan and transfer that number to google voice if its possible. i hear some people are having problems porting prepaid numbers recently. only downside is that if it doesnt work i am out some money.

any other ideas how to do this can it be done online or through the phone?
thanks

Hi kenstrguy1. I'm TracFone Larry. The phone number can be ported out to another service provider. However, you lose the remaining balance of your Tracfone.
