Can you keep your number if you're switching to Verizon from a different wireless service provider?

I want to switch to a cheaper prepaid provider from Tracfone and I was just wondering if I could keep the same number when getting a new from Verizon and transferring here.

I don't know how Verizon prepaid is cheaper, but no matter.

Bring your current account number and information to a Verizon store and have them port your number over.

Actually it depends on the area. Not all numbers are portable.

The cards I've been getting every 3 weeks or so are $40 each, so unlimited everything for $30 a month is a much better deal.  Anyway, is there any way to do this online instead?

You must be thinking of ATT prepaid. 

$30 plan is unlimited talk and text, no data.

$45 include one GBS data, $60 includes 3 GBS of data.

ATT plans include rollover on the $45 and $60 plans and reduced speed data after your allotment is used.

silly me I assumed a smartphone.   The plans I posted are smartphone, not basic plans.
