The Boost Mobile transfer PIN and account number are the two essential details you need to port your number from Boost mobile to any other network.
How port out process works is that you provide your new carrier with your Boost Mobile details. The carrier will contact Boost Mobile on your behalf to request a number transfer.
To get your Boost Mobile transfer PIN, contact the customer support department preferably via online chat or call support at 1-800-683-7392. The PIN will be sent to your number via SMS once you verify your number.
The other essential detail you need to complete the port-out process is the Boost Mobile account number.
In this post, you will understand why your Boost Mobile transfer PIN is important. Also, you will learn how to find your Boost Mobile transfer PIN if you forget your original transfer PIN.
Does Boost Mobile Have A Transfer PIN?
Yes. Boost Mobile has a transfer PIN. The Boost Mobile transfer PIN is the security number that adds an extra layer of protection to your account. The Security PIN comes in handy to protect your account from scammers.
Boost Mobile will request the 4-digit security PIN when you need to make any major changes to your account. That includes doing number transfers.
Boost Mobile won’t process any number transfer request to another carrier without the Transfer PIN. This protects your number from scammers who make unauthorized number transfer requests to scam victims.
How To Find Your Boost Mobile Transfer PIN
As mentioned, you have to contact Boost Mobile customer support to request for your Security PIN. There are several ways to go about it. Follow the steps below on the different methods to get your Security/ Transfer PIN:
Get Boost Mobile PIN Via Online Chat
. Visit the Boost Mobile Contact Us page. Check the bottom right for the online chat option.
. Select ‘Security PIN’ and ‘Retrieve Security PIN’ from the options.
. Enter your mobile number. You will receive a verification code.
. Enter the code in the chat box to verify your number.
. You will receive your PIN shortly via SMS.
Get Boost Mobile PIN By Calling Support Department
. Dial 611 which is the Boost Mobile auto support number or call 1-800-683-7392.
. Confirm that the call is from your Boost Mobile phone.
. Listen to the ‘Automated System’s Main Menu’ and select ‘5’ which is the ‘Update Account Preferences’ option.
. Listen for the next Menu and press ‘5’ again. This option is ‘Forgot PIN and want to have it sent to you’.
. You will hear a confirmation message ‘confirming that you will receive your PIN shortly’. Hang up after that.

How To Change Your Boost Mobile Transfer PIN
Boost Mobile gives you the option to change your security PIN from time to time. Simply log into your account and change your PIN.

Boost Mobile Account Number
Your Boost Mobile account number is the second important detail you need to complete the transfer process. You find your Boost Mobile account number the same way you find the transfer PIN. Call customer support at 1-800-683-7392, and request for your account number.
Additional Details To Make Your Boost Mobile Number Transfer Seamless:
. Always double-check the Boost Mobile details you send to your new carrier to make sure they are accurate.
That includes your Boost Mobile account number and PIN and other personal details. Incorrect account details will only stall the transfer process.
. Ensure your Boost Mobile number remains active for the duration of the transfer process. If your Boost Mobile account is suspended, reactivate the account before you commence the number transfer process. You can subscribe to the $3 a-day plan to complete the process.
