When I tried to transfer my number from Republic Wireless to Cricket Wireless, I got a warning notice, “Oops! We’re having trouble validating your number. Please try again.” Then I asked the representative. He told me my number registered as a landline so it couldn’t pass through their system.
I am not sure if Republic Wireless could help. Or maybe I could port my number somewhere else.
