Move a phone number to a phone I already own?

Jump to solution

I am considering upgrading my current phone and want to then use my current phone to replace a phone on another line that is older and doesn't work very well anymore. 

Is that still considered an "upgrade" for the other line that would require a $25 charge, or is there a way to move it without any charges? 

I checked and unfortunately the old phone uses a larger SIM card than my current phone, so I can just simply swap cards.

Thanks!

Hello, it would not be considered an upgrade for the second line.  It would just be considered a device change and you do not need to pay the upgrade fee for that line.  You will however need to purchase a sim card for that device which is $10.
