You MAY be able to do this but it's not going to be automated or fast. When you port, the normal process is to close the port-from account. You'll probably need to talk to BOTH carriers and coordinate this yourself.

Well Verizon flat out said "NO" and that if I just want to get calls on my Tmobile BB to use the Call Forwarding feature and I said "That doesn't solve my problem and then causes me to use minute on both verizon and tmobile" and she said "well then pay the 170 dollar cancelation fee and you can take your number" and i replied with "You obviously didn't listen when I started this conversation and said that I want to keep Verizon because my family is on it I just wanted my less commonly used number switched over"
