    Looking at switching phone companies

    I have sprint right now and want to switch to boost mobile. Can I go into a sprint store and switch but keep my phone number or how would that work?

    Ironically, they are the same company. Sprint owns Boost Mobile. BM is a good company, my wife has had no problems with them.

    Don't know about keeping the same #, can't help you there.

    Re: Looking at switching phone companies

    Generally you can keep your number when going from carrier to carrier. In my experiences, when you sign up with your new carrier, they'll put in a request to port your number from your previous carrier. This generally happens overnight and when it does, it's a signal to your old carrier to terminate your contract. At that point, you may incur fees from your previous carrier if you have any amount of time left on your contract.

    That said, you may want to call Boost and see if they'll let you port a number in.
