Carrier Guide & Porting FAQ

To transfer your number to CREDO Mobile (also known as "porting"), you will need to supply us with your account information and PIN from your current carrier. Below is a guide to the most common carriers. Please have this information on hand when you join CREDO Mobile so we can port your number without delay.

If you don’t see your current carrier on the list below, contact them to find out what information you need to give us to release your number to CREDO Mobile.

  • No PIN needed

Metro PCS

  • Account number (9 digits)
  • PIN (generally 8-digit birthdate unless you've changed it)

T-Mobile Prepaid

  • Account number (your 10-digit phone number with 1 in front)

Verizon Prepaid

  • Account number (Your 10-digit phone number)
  • PIN (4-digit password that you use to access your account from your phone)


How long will the port take?

If we have all the correct information from your current carrier, most ports will complete in 1-3 hours. At minimum, we will need the account holder’s name, account number and billing address. If there’s a PIN associated to the account, we will need that too.

When will the port happen?

The port will initiate when you activate your new CREDO Mobile phone at Please activate your new phone(s) within 10 days of your ship date, otherwise activation will happen automatically.

Should I call my current provider to cancel when I port my number?

No. This could cause you to lose your phone number. When you initiate your port, your line on your previous account will automatically cancel.

Will porting my number out automatically cancel my current service?

In most cases, yes. However, if you’re not transferring all the numbers from your current carrier, then your account will remain open with that carrier, with the other lines still active on that account.

What should I do if my number has not ported over after 6 hours?

First, please check (with your CREDO Mobile order number or the phone number you’re porting, plus your billing ZIP code) for any status messages. If you still have questions, then call customer service at 800-411-0848 for assistance.
