Customer gets a paper statement that will have billing address as their system has it written, along with the account number (which is the phone number). Account PIN is not listed on the billing statement, but will be a four digit number. If an existing customer needs to call for support, the 10-digit phone number and four digit PIN number is required by the automated system.
Your 11 digit phone number (1-***-***-****) is the account number for T-Mobile Prepaid. The passcode is your 4-digit PIN number (the same PIN used when calling customer service). If you don’t have a PIN you can set one up by calling 611 from your T-Mobile phone and saying “no” when it asks you if you want to refill and then choosing “Manage my account” followed by “change my account PIN”. If you forgot your PIN number or need other help call the porting department.
Port-ins can only be done for a number with a local area code. According to a STRATA Networks rep on 08/02/17, a Port out to another carrier requires confirmation from the other carrier whether the number is “Port-able” or not before initiating the process. Account details can be verified by calling STRATA Wireless customer service.
Call Straight Talk and ask them to release your number for porting. Straight Talk account # is NOT the Phone Number. It is the MEID or IMEI serial number of the phone (this can be found on the back of the phone itself – under the battery, so remove the battery!) Or, if your are using a BYOP SIM Card, it will be the last 15-digits of your SIM Card number. You can also view the account number in the My Account section of the Straight Talk website by clicking Add (or Edit) Nickname. – Passcode can be found on your online Straight Talk My Account page by clicking Update Personal Profile where it’s listed as Current Security PIN. If That field is blank, be sure to set up a passcode PIN before porting. (VERY IMPORTANT).
Sprint postpaid account # is NOT phone number. It is a 9-digit number which can be found at the top center of your bill and on your online account page. Your passcode is your “call-in” passcode when you call customer service. You can set up or change your PIN on your online account page. You can also call customer service to verify account details.
