Like most people, you probably have more than one phone number. You may have a work number, a personal number and even a separate number for your online activities. And if you're like most people, transferring your phone number to a new phone can be a real pain. But with Net 10's new transfer feature, it's easy to move your number from one phone to another. Here's how.
The first step is to purchase your new NET10 phone. You can do this either online or in a store. Once you have your new phone, make sure it is properly activated.
Once you have your new phone, the next step is to activate it. You will need to have your old phone and your new phone with you to do this. You will also need to know your account number and PIN. Once you have all of this information, you can follow these simple steps:
Turn off your old phone.
Remove the battery from your old phone.
Insert the battery into your new phone.
Turn on your new phone.
Enter your account number and PIN when prompted.
Follow the steps for activation.
Once your new phone is activated, you can easily transfer your old phone number. To do this, follow these steps:
On your old phone, dial *22890.
Press the send key.
Listen to the prompts and follow the instructions.
Enter your ten-digit phone number when prompted.
Press the send key.
Your phone number will now be transferred to your new phone.
Here's how to enter the phone model:
The next step is to get your new phone's IMEI number. This can be through dialing *#06# on your phone. Once you have the IMEI number, enter it and press the send key when prompted.
Once you have entered your account number and PIN, you will be able to log in to your account. You can manage your account settings and transfer your phone number to your new phone.
Transferring your phone number from one phone to another with NET10 should only take a few minutes. Once you have entered your account number and PIN, the process should be straightforward. However, it's always a good idea to have your old phone handy if you need to reference anything.
NET10 recommends allowing up to two business days for the number transfer to complete. However, it could take longer for landlines. If you have any questions or problems during the process, contact NET10 customer service.
