 Getting Ready To Port Out Number From Boost Mobile

There are things you need to consider and put in place before you start the process of transferring your number out of Boost Mobile. These steps will make the process easy for you.

a. Find A New Carrier

This step is straight to the point. After you decide to transfer your number from Boost Mobile, the next step is to find a new carrier. You have to ensure that the new carrier meets your call and data needs.

Thankfully, there are many options available, both Telecoms and MVNOs. One of the main factors to check out for when deciding on a carrier is to confirm that the carrier has coverage and a strong signal in your location.

Also, check their plans to ensure that they are affordable and within your budget. In addition, check out for additional benefits the network offers their new and existing customers.

b. Eligibility For Transfer

Before you start the transfer process, it is advisable to confirm that you can transfer your number to the new carrier. Your number may be ineligible for transfer to the network.

For instance, if the carrier doesn’t have an interconnection agreement with Boost Mobile, you can’t transfer the number to the network. So, contact the new carrier’s customer support team or porting department to confirm your number is eligible to be transferred to the network.

c. Number and Service Remains Active

Before and during the port out process, you have to make sure that your Boost Mobile service plan remains active. The same applies to the number you want to transfer. The number has to be active and not assigned to any other customer.

If your account has been suspended or past the bill due date, you may consider opting for a $3 daily plan to keep your account active for the duration of the number transfer process.

Details You Need To Complete Boost Mobile Port Out Process

Once these factors are in place, the next step is to get the details you need for the port out process. These are the details you submit to the new carrier to process the number transfer to their network. The details are as follows:

Boost Mobile, just like any other carrier, assigns an account number to all customers. For most carriers, you can find the account number on the account page online or on your monthly bill.
