We allow number transfers, as described under those guidelines.
What’s changed, is that under our old Republic plans, you could activate a phone, get a nice new, number, and then transfer your number to the service line at any time - a month later, a year later, it didn’t matter.
But now it matters. At activation, you’ll transfer the phone number. There’s no option to do so after you’ve been assigned a new number. So you have a choice - a new number or transfer. You can no longer have both.
What I’m not seeing in the FCC guide is something that says any carrier has to offer you the option to transfer your number after already assigning you a new number.
The part about have two phones with the same number is not the same thing as having one phone and getting a new number replaced with your transferred number.
