    Beware, the line "Yes, you can port in your existing number from any major wireless carrier in the USA." is not completely true. I tried to port a number from Verizon CDMA postpaid to RedPocket CDMA, and was told it was not possible due to a "carrier agreement". I would have to first port to GSMA or GSMT (on a phone that was not fully compatible with either) and then change the line over to CDMAV. Customer service said they would update the website with this information, which has not been done as of 2019/04/23.

    Wound up getting a refund. I wouldn't recommend doing business with any company that is not upfront about everything.

    You need a new sim card to port your number.  You can't port to an active sim card.

    August I activated a CDMA annual plan without porting. The assigned number has an prefix uncommon to my area so I asked if I could change the number. They replied that I could 30 days after the activation date. In September I asked if I could port a number from another carrier and lose the number Red Pocket provided during activation. The reply was once activated the number could not be changed on a CDMA SIM. I asked if I purchased a new SIM and ported in during activation could the balance of my account be applied to the new SIM. They replied that it could not. I asked that should I misplace my phone would I just lose the remaining 11 months paid for. The reply was the number I have now would be transferred (ported?) to a new SIM. I'm left to think Red Pocket is capable of doing what I ask, but is unwilling.
