On top of everything else on your schedule, switching to a new cellphone provider might sound like too much to tackle. You may be thinking, “Will it take several phone calls or mean eternally waiting on-hold? Most importantly, will it be handled correctly?”
With Consumer Cellular, making the switch is easy as can be! We only require a few pieces of information, and the transfer is usually completed within a day. Here’s the best part though: it’s hassle-free because you keep your existing phone number, so you won’t need to notify all your friends or family of a new one. It’s just another way to keep your experience with us pleasant.
Call us when you’re ready to start service, and we’ll begin the transfer for you. Just be sure to have a billing statement or other account information handy from your current provider. We’ll contact them and get your number entered into our system. In most cases, they will automatically close your account once the number transfers, so you don’t have to! There may be early termination fees or other charges due from your current service provider, so be sure to check with them ahead of time.
Porting (transferring your number) usually takes 24 hours or less. We’ll let you know when it is completed via a text message or email. And, with our 100% Risk-Free Guarantee, you can try our service without worry. It couldn’t be easier!
