How do I transfer my phone number to Optimum Mobile?

 

For existing lines:

To transfer a number from another carrier to an existing Optimum Mobile line, please Message Us or call support.

If your line is eligible to be transferred, we can help you in a few steps.  You will need your previous carrier’s account number and transfer PIN.

For new lines:

Select Keep my number at the checkout.

After your purchase, we'll send an email letting you know when you can start your transfer (port). Once in MyMobile, please provide us with your current carrier Account Number, Account PIN (or Number Transfer PIN), and the last 4 digits of the social security number associated with the account.

What information do I need to provide when transferring my phone number to Optimum Mobile?

You can start your transfer before we deliver your SIM Card


Important: If you start your transfer before your SIM card is delivered, you will temporarily lose access to your current phone number. The account with your current carrier must also be active to bring your number over, so do not cancel it.

Your number will not transfer until you activate your Optimum Mobile service.
