I want to leave a family plan. I have personal issues with account holder or head of the family. So, do I need account holder’s permission to leave or I can port out without the need to have permission?
Thanks in advance!

You need to have the PAH’s permission to port the line since they basically own the number.


Thanks for your tesponse. What if I do not want the number/line any more. I am going to get another line for myself. I just want to leave both the family plan and line/phone number. So, I still need the PHA’s permission?

No, you can open a account on your own. Are you financing your current phone through your current plan?

I would inform him that you're opening a new plan and won't need the number on his plan though.
