I also got the "this number cannot be ported" message. I'm wishing to switch from At&t to boost for the Walmart only plan of $35 a month with 6gigs of high speed.

I, too, am getting a "phone number is not eligible for porting" message while attempting to switch from Sprint. What can I do about this?

Hi shawnywill!

 

Do you have an existing account or you're creating a new one? In any case, would you mind sending us a private message with the following information:

 

  • Device IMEI / MEID DEC number
  • Porting Phone Number, Pin and Account Number

 

We'll continue with the porting process once we validate that information.

Hi I am trying to migrate my phone number from Virgin Mobile to Boost Mobile.  I have my Boost phone in hand.  I called the number and was charged then they hung up because business hours are ending.  I am beyond angry.  Please assist asap if possible.

Hi, sdotewan! Thanks for contacting us. We want to help. Transferring your number from Virgin Mobile to Boost is not considered a port-in it's considered a migration. We can migrate your number from Virgin to Boost in about 10 minutes. For that, we'll need you to send us a private message with the following information: 

 

(from Virgin) Phone number and PIN 
(Boost) New Cellphone's serial number (MEID DEC or IMEI)
( Boost) Name and address for account
(Boost) Desired 4-digits PIN 
(Boost) Desired price plan
