How do I transfer my Boost Mobile account to another carrier?
Before transferring your Boost Mobile account to another carrier, you might want to try contacting Boost Mobile first. When I was considering changing carriers, I contacted them first and asked how to transfer my Boost Mobile account to another phone carrier and rather than letting me know how to do this, they gave me all kinds of offers to stay with them. The deals they offered me were too good to pass up, needless to stay; I stood with Boost Mobile and still pay the low price they set me up with.
The Mobile industry has become quite competitive over the years as cell phones gained popularity. Now, phone carriers are working hard to gain customers and stay ahead of their competitors; therefore, they especially don't want to lose the customers they already have. To keep their customers happy, Boost Mobile listens to what they have to say and what they want in a phone carrier, while continually updating their products and services.
Therefore, if you are not happy with your current plan, there are plenty of other plans available that might better suit your needs If not, Boost Mobile may create a plan just for you to keep your business.
However, if you still want to change your mobile carrier, I would be happy to help you make the switch.
How Do I Transfer My Boost Mobile To Another Carrier?
Can I Keep My Phone Number?
When switching phone carriers you can always retain your phone number, no matter which provider you choose, as long as your phone service is still on. In fact, if you request, to keep your current phone number, by law your service provider is legally obligated to maintain and transfer it to your new mobile provider. Therefore, if you want Boost to relinquish your phone number it is important that you "do not" cancel your service with them. When switching your mobile service plan, your new carrier will handle everything for you.
How Do I Preserve My Contacts, Apps, Photos, and More?
Most of the new smartphones store your contacts, photos, and apps in the phone's memory itself, but some will store your contacts on the Sim card. Therefore, when you remove your SIM card, you will lose your contacts. You can use Google to sync your contacts and then restore them once you switch to a new SIM.
In addition, you may need to contact Boost Mobile to unlock your phone before you can use it with a new carrier. For more information, contact Boost Mobile now.
Making the Switch
One mistake that many people make when switching to a new service is transferring their accounts right after paying their monthly bill. Keep in mind Boost Mobile will not reimburse you for any unused minutes, so you may as well stay with your current plan and use up what you paid for before paying for another carrier as well.
Start by ordering a new SIM card, sold by many online retailers. Once you have received your new SIM card, activate it to begin the transfer process. If you are using an online service to switch to a new plan and want to keep your current phone number, find the option to keep your number during sign up. Some carriers may refer to this as "mobile number porting" or simply "porting". This gives you the option to add your existing phone number to your new services.
