If you already have prepaid account set up then you need to call the porting dept. 888 898 7685. They will port the number from landline to prepaid. You will need the account number and pin number from the landline account. The pin is what you verify your account with when you call landline. It can take about a week or so to port the number.

The other lines that's left in your account will not be effected if you port one of the lines out. Keep in mind that portability is a law, and no one can stop you from doing so, under the right conditions though!

Hope that answers your question.
