The tech at Choice Wireless said, “The Choice Wireless account number should be on your last invoice. We do not have passwords on accounts.” – Upon further questioning, the Choice Wireless rep said, “Your account number will be given to you when you sign up for an account, or you can call the customer service line to get the account number as well. If the PIN/passcode is wrong, we will refuse a port but we will contact to your current carrier to let them know which information we need updated. It usually is done within 5 minutes of putting in your port reqeust.”
When we contacted Appalachian Wireless, they would NOT provide information about how a customer could get their Appalachian Wireless account number or password but it is a requirement by the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) that a company cannot refuse to port your number because you have not paid for porting. If you call Appalachian Wireless customer service as a customer, they are required to give you the account number and password in order to port your number away.
The rep I spoke with at pinpoint (mid-day) said that he works basically as a call center for Blaze Wireless. He was very friendly but wasn’t sure how to find out what towers Blazy Wireless actually uses or if there’s a way to get your account number or password in order to port your number away from Blazy Wireless. If you have any information about Blazy Wireless, please contact us so we can update this page ASAP!
To port a phone number away from Clear Talk, you will need the account number and PIN that Clear Talk originally set up when activating your account. Clear Talk customer service seems like the best way to get this information although it looks like the company is going through major changes.
To port a phone number away from Consolidated Telephone Co you will need to contact customer service to get your account number and password. Consolidated Telephone Co will validate the port request by verifying that not only the account number and password match but the name and address must match the port request as well.
Your Consumer Cellular account number can be found online or by calling Consumer Cellular. It will be a 9 digit number. There is no passcode for Consumer Cellular so you will need to use: 0000 if the carrier you are porting to requires a passcode. The name, address and last-4 numbers of the SSN must match Consumer Cellular’s records. Call Consumer Cellular porting department if you run in to problems.
