Cancelling old Sprint plan before phone arrives, but still transferring number

The wife is with Sprint and her billing period ends tomorrow. Would like to transfer her number, but phone will not be in for a few days. She’s fine being w/out phone for a few days but … can she transfer the # even though new phone is not activated?

You can use a number parking service such as Number Barn.

RW doesn’t have a way to hold your port-in number without an active line of service to port your number into.


Simple answer. No. Once you outright cancel a line, the number is forfeited.
You will need to keep the service active until you are ready to port over the Sprint number. The port process will result in the old service being automatically canceled once the port is completed.
