My wife has an old phone on a 4.0 plan. I bought her a Pixel 5a that hasn’t yet powered on and created a new 5.0 plan account. We will receive her 5.0 SIM card in the mail today. The old phone has an extremely limited battery and exhibits very long delays opening the camera and doesn’t take quality pictures and video.
That brings me to my question. She would love to video a big reveal tomorrow using the new phone. If we activate the phone tonight following all the best advice for a 4.0 number transfer, what is the worst thing that might happen? Could she get stuck without service on either device?
Second question: will I be able to port my separate 4.0 plan number into her new 5.0 account in a month or two so that we can save on costs?
