This way you can have things taken care of before you leave, get the VM number ported over without have to worry about a new month, and when you arrive home you'll just have to put the SIM card in the phone to have it up and running with you current number.
wow thats a great idea!! So i can actually switch over my number with just having the sim card and not having the phone yet?? That's great! and then when I get back I can just pop the sim into the phone and everything will be okay? Cause idc if I'm out of a phone for a few days id rather save $30
EDIT: or even can I see if anyone has an old GSM phone they're not using and use that for the trip until I get back with my new phone? Will it work to just switch over the sim card over like that? I wont need to reactivate do i?
