I have a T-Mobile account with 2 lines. I'm moving to a new area, and would to change my phone number (the primary number on the account) to the new area code. But, I'd also like to port my old number to Google Voice so that I can still get voicemails from it.
I am trying to sort out how to do this. One way is to add a new line ($25 for a new sim) with a number in the new area code, then swap that number with the primary phone account, then port the old number out. But, I'd pay $25 + one month of a new line that I'll never use.
Does anyone know what would happen if I simply ported my main number out of the system? If I port my main number out, and then my phone is suddenly dead, I could call T-Mobile and have them assign a new number, in the new area code, to the phone. The phone would be down for a bit but the old number will be active so it's ok.
Anyways, if anyone knows the best way, I'm all ears. What happens if I suddenly port out the primary number on my account?
