How Do You Change Your Phone Number With Straight Talk?

Call Straight Talk’s customer care department to change a Straight Talk phone number. As of 2015, this update can be processed with a live operator or an automated voice system, but not online.

First, press five to access the services menu, which includes technical support. The automated message presents a list of options for the caller to choose from based on the specific area of support.

Reactivating a phone with a different ZIP code is only possible if Straight Talk provides service in the new ZIP code.

The existing phone number must be active with the current service provider in order to be ported to a Straight Talk phone.

Straight Talk permits up to four annual wireless number changes. To alter the area code of a phone number, the complete number must be changed. Straight Talk service can be activated with a new phone number or a number ported from another carrier. Accounts that are inactive for more than 30 days may lose their phone number and must be reactivated with a new number.

A few hours to seven days are required to transfer an existing wireless phone number to Straight Talk.

Only active phone lines associated with accounts in good standing may be migrated to Straight Talk.

Porting in an existing number can be completed over the phone with a salesperson or on the activation site of Straight Talk. When the prior carrier deactivates service, activation of a Straight Talk phone using a number from another carrier is complete. The phone number cannot be transferred and activated unless the prerequisite is met.
