By Mandy Slake

When you transfer your service from Net10 to TracFone, you don't need to leave your phone number behind. The Federal Communications Commission allows you to transfer your numbers from one carrier to another. Since Net10 is a prepaid wireless carriers, you don't even need to pay a final bill after you transfer your service. However, you will lose any remaining balance on your Net10 account, so be sure and use up your minutes before you transfer.

Obtain your account number and account PIN number or password from Net10.

Step 2

Open your web browser and go to the TracFone porting page. You can find the link in the Resources section.

Step 3

Read the terms of service, and check the box at the bottom of the page. Click the "Continue" button to start the transfer process.

Step 4

Enter the serial number from your TracFone activation card in the "Serial Number" box. Click the "Continue" button.

Step 5

Enter your Net10 account number, PIN or password, and your contact information into the appropriate boxes. Click "Continue" to confirm.
