Last Updated on June 20, 2024 by Ron D. Morgan

Looking to port your number from the US Cellular network to another network? All you need to do is to submit your US Cellular account details to the new carrier.

Most carriers will request for you submit your US Cellular transfer PIN and account number. Other carriers will go further to request the address and ZIP code in your account.

In a nutshell, to get your US Cellular transfer PIN, contact customer support and request your transfer PIN. On the other hand, you can find your US Cellular account number on your online account.

This post will explain in detail the process of getting these vital details that are essential to port your number to another network.

Does US Cellular Require a Transfer PIN?

Yes. US Cellular will require a transfer PIN to approve any number transfer request. The transfer PIN is quite different from the account security PIN.

The transfer PIN also known as the port out PIN adds an extra layer of protection to your account. The network does so to discourage scammers from placing number transfer requests for numbers that belong to others.

What this means is that US Cellular will not approve any number transfer request from another carrier without the transfer PIN. How it works is that you submit the transfer PIN to the new carrier.

The carrier will in turn submit the number transfer request with your transfer PIN and other details to US Cellular. 

How To Find US Cellular Transfer PIN
