Transferring your phone number to Lucky Mobile
Wireless number portability lets you keep the same phone number when changing wireless service providers. You can keep your phone number when switching from:
- One wireless service provider to another;
- A home phone service to a wireless service;
There are no additional fees to transfer your number to Lucky Mobile, but you are responsible for any contractual obligation with your previous service provider.
How do I transfer my phone number to Lucky Mobile?
You can transfer your number to Lucky Mobile at the time of activation. When completing the transfer, you will receive a text message from your current carrier to authorize the transfer.
IMPORTANT: Do NOT cancel your current service and ensure that your account is in good standing, as only active phone numbers are eligible to be transferred.
Can any number be transferred?
Not all numbers are transferable. For example, the following cannot be transferred:
- Inactive numbers
- Page numbers
- Numbers from areas that do not support transfers of phone numbers
You'll be able to check if your number is transferable by visiting a lucky Mobile store.
