Canceling Main Number...?

Canceling Main Number...?

hi Y'all,  

 

I have  4 lines... will refer to them as A,  B,  C  and D.   Line A is my main number and past the contract date/out of conract.  Line D was  just started this  past September or October 2010 for my kid to use.  She no longer  uses that line.  What I'm wondering  is,  if I get the number to Line D changed ( yes,  I know they'll charge for a  new SIM and a number change )and make that the main number,  can I still cancel Line A w/o having to pay some type of fee?   

Would it be better to get the new number/SIM for Line D first then cancel Line A a few days after that?

 

Thankx in advance, 

B.W.

Re: Canceling Main Number...?

Since line A is no longer under contract you can cancel that without paying any termination fees.

 

Once/When you cancel line A you can choose whatever number/line remaining on the account to become the main line.  Generally there is no requirement on what number/line has to be the main one.

 

Is should not matter if you change the number for line D before or after making it the primary line on the account.

\/\/o0T!!!  thank you Planet Ed.  I just got Line D's number changed and am awaiting a new SIM card for that phone.  Maybe once it gets  here,  I'll call back and cancel Line A and  pop the new SIM into my Propel...  I can't get used to the Strive that was  used for Line D.

 

thankx for the quick reply.

Re: Canceling Main Number...?

hi Planet Ed,

 

Was able to cancel Line A.  they ended  making Line B the Main Line when I told them I wanted Line D as the Main Line.  Not really a issue but since I use Line A as  *my* number,  I'd like them to make it so.  Do you know if they'll charge to swap things around? 

 

Thankx again for your  help.
