Move phone number, get new number

I have a Go Phone I like, but it doesn't really meet all my needs.  I have decided to open a new account (which will be my main number) with another carrier, but also keep my Go Phone as a second phone line.

 

How do I move my current phone number to the new carrier, keep my remaining Go Phone  balance, and change my Go Phone number.

 

Can you please give me instructions on how to proceed with this.  It seems like it might be tricky.

I don't think that can be done. Once you port out your number, it closes the account and you lose the remaining balance.

It won't work!
As long as it is a GO phone account (pay as you go)
You can take your number to a different carrier,but you will lost all the balance left in your account.
This rule apply to most cell phone networks in the world.
