How do I get a new number for moto e (2nd gen) now that I have transferred number to an upgraded phone?

I recently upgraded from a Moto E (2nd gen) to a Samsung Edge S7. I would like to still use my Moto E as a secondary phone. How do I obtain a new number and activate my old phone?

When I looked at a new plan, Moto E was not listed but the phone has a message saying, Activate Now. I am curious to try that but I don’t want my number to revert back from my Samsung Edge back to the old phone. Please advise.

The easiest way is to factory reset the Moto E2 and then reactivate it. It was deactivated when the number was transferred. During the activation it will ask if you are upgrading or wanting a new number. Just select the option for the new number.
