Can I keep my Cricket number to a different device

I have an S5 with a Cricket account. I would like to change to using an S8 while keeping my Cricket number.
Since it is a used phone, I cannot upgrade. So, I saw I could request a new sim card for a different device on my current line.
If I go this route and order a new sim card for the S8 (keeping my number) does that make the S8 the device now for the line? What happens to my S5?
Can I then use my S5 to add an additional line and order a new sim card for the S5 as a new number? Or will it still be linked to the original account and not be available to use as a new line?

Hi Hellann, thank you for visiting and posting on the Cricket Community Forum! Placing your current SIM card in the Samsung Galaxy S8 will switch your service to that device. Your phone number is linked to your SIM card. Once the Samsung Galaxy S5 is taken off the account, you can then activate another line of service with that phone.

Hi stay_pawsitive,

Thank you for visiting and posting on the Cricket Community Forum! You can transfer your current Cricket service to your new iPhone by placing your SIM card into the device. However, if you need a different size SIM card, you would have to visit your local Cricket Wireless store.
