I called to try and port II n a 907 area code to my account. I was told of course I could and then was talked into upgrading to 2 new phones with the line.

Subsequently I was told they didn't think they could port this number in. I see this had been a problem for at least 2 years.   I have an inquiry in now but If like to know ASAP if this problem can be remedied.

T-Mobile was unable to port the 907 area code from Verizon to T-Mobile, we had to go with AT&T to keep the number. : (

T-Mobile has no control over which numbers are possible to port in most cases.  If the reason it can’t be ported is because T-Mobile doesn’t have an E911 center servicing the area where your number is from.  Then they can’t port the number.  The FCC also has a list of reasons why some numbers and area codes do not allow their numbers to be ported.  More information can be found on the FCC’s website as to why your number might not be possible to port.
