Activating and transferring number from another carrier

Activating and transferring number from another carrier

I just received 2 iPhones, LG Neon II, and Samsung Solstice II.  I was wondering what the process is to activate and transfer number for each phone.  The numbers are from another carrier.  Also, can I do this anytime (24 hr activation and number transfer service)?

 

Thanks.

Thanks for your advices.

 

Are there instructions on activating each phone?  Can I activate any time of day?

Re: Activating and transferring number from another carrier

I called and tried activating my phones, but the system is unable to locate any of the wireless numbers I enter (4 numbers).  When the system prompted me to input my wireless number to activate, I am putting the wireless number I have currently on another carrier.  Is there another number I should be entering?
