Switching services


Switching services

I'm looking to move over to AT&T from Sprint and I'm wondering when I transfer my number to AT&T will it cancel my service at Sprint?




Should I cancel Sprint first and then do a number transfer?


I have two numbers I need to move, which is the more effecient and least problematic way to go about this?


Btw my contract is completed with Sprint.

Re: Switching services

AT&T will cancel your Sprint account. When you go to change make sure you have your Sprint account number with you.


DO NOT cancel your Sprint account before the number is ported. If you do, your number is NO LONGER PORTABLE. You will lose your number. Account MUST BE ACTIVE to port the number from one provider to another.
