Giving son my MotoG (1) when I upgrade to new phone


I currently have a 1st Gen MotoG with the $10 plan. I want to give the phone and plan to my son with a brand new phone number. At the same time, I want to port my existing number to a new RW phone and plan. I am concerned I will do things in the wrong order and lose the $10 plan or my existing phone number. What is the proper way to do it?

When you buy the new phone, it will only be eligible for the new My Choice plans. The first gen Moto G will still be eligible for the plan it’s on now. When you activate the new phone, you will activate as an upgrade and your number on the Moto G will transfer to the new phone very quickly. When the Moto G is activate as a new line, it will be assigned a new number.

Hi @willt

Just to reassure you and along with @beachb’s excellent advice, your legacy G1 will activate on the base plan (1.0/2.0), it is ‘grandfathered’, and can be activated with a new number.


I’m sure there’s a good reason why my links don’t show up in a pretty frame, like yours. But, I don’t know what that reason is. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:




Do you see the difference?

Hitting return after see and placing the link on it’s own line expands it.


Got it. Thanks.
