How To Transfer Your Boost Mobile Number to a new carrier (2024)

Looking to switch carriers (away from Boost Mobile) but want to keep the same phone number you’ve always had? You’re in the right place. Transferring your phone number is easy and only takes 5-10 minutes.

Carriers might refer to this process as “porting”, “transferring”, “number transfer”, “switching”, or even “moving your number.” No matter the lingo used, it’s all the same thing: bringing your current number to your new service.

In this guide, we’ll walk you through the steps to seamlessly transfer your current number to your new carrier.

So, how do I transfer my Boost Mobile number to another carrier?

Transferring your Boost Mobile number to a new carrier is straightforward and can be completed in just a few steps. Here’s how you can do it:

Step 1: Check Eligibility

Ensure your Boost Mobile number is eligible for porting. All active mobile numbers should be eligible, but it’s a good idea to verify this beforehand.

Step 2: Gather Necessary Information

You’ll need the following details from your Boost account to initiate the port:

  • Account Number
    • To find your Account Number, please log in to,
    • Navigate to Account Settings → My Profile.
  • Port Out PIN
    • To obtain your Port Out PIN, please verify by using your IMEI/ICCID and Account Number. Need additional help? Contact Boost Mobile here: (833) 502-6678.

Step 3: Choose Your New Carrier

Make your pick and navigate over to their website/app to begin setting up your new plan.

Step 4: Provide Information and Documentation

During the setup process, you’ll be asked if you want to bring over your current phone number. You’ll need to provide the information gathered in Steps 2 and 3. This includes your current phone number, your current carrier, your carrier account number, and lastly your number transfer pin.

  • Provide your new carrier your port-out number and PIN.
  • Use the name on your Boost Mobile account and your Boost Mobile service address.

Step 6: Porting Date and Time

The porting of a number can generally take around 24-48 hours, depending on how cooperative your previous carrier is. In certain instances, it can be longer for VoIP or landline numbers, which can take up to 7-10 business days. This is because it’s up to your previous carrier (in this case, Boost Mobile) to release your number. While they are required to release it, we can’t confirm the amount of time it takes them to do so.

Step 7: Await Confirmation

Once you’ve provided all the necessary information and continued through the activation flow of your new carrier, keep an eye on your inbox for confirmation.

Step 8: Enjoy Your New Service

Once the porting process is complete, you’ll be able to enjoy your new carrier with your existing phone number. You did it!
