We can definitely help you out with that. Because the phone number is coming from Virgin Mobile, we have to do a migration which is a different process and can only be performed through customer care. Please, send us a private message with the following information to further assist you:

 

1. Name and last name.
2. Full address, including zip code.
3. Virgin Mobile phone number.
4. Virgin Mobile PIN/password.
5. MEID/DEC number and UICC/SIM card number of the Boost Mobile phone that you would like to activate.
6. Price plan that you would like to have with Boost Mobile.
7. 4 Digit PIN that you would like to have with Boost Mobile

I'm switching from VM (virgin mobile) as well & having this issue when trying to keep my same number. I don't want a new number and when calling CS about it, I kept getting transferred to VM cs? Can someone help?

I am trying to port in a Verizon number and it tells me not eligible as well. Is it possible to port this number in a different way? It would be much easier to keep it since it's already listed with the schools and everything.
