Transferring number from 1 prepaid to another

Is there a way if I buy a new prepay phone I can transfer my "original" number to the new device? If so is there a link that explains or something?

I could be wrong but I think it would be best to call verizon and explain what you want to do so it's done right.  Mary

Well I could have sworn I read that it is possible to do at one point on the site.

Like there is a section called "change your device" would that do the same thing?

Ok I haven't had prepaid in years but if you log into your account and you see change your device then I would think that would switch devices just like on post paid if I want to activate a new phone on my line I would do that if I didn't want to call 228 to activate the new phone.   Hopefully someone will know or call them and ask to make sure.  Mary

If you call Verizon Prepaid Customer Service at 1-888-294-6804 they can transfer your number over to the new phone. Be sure to back up or copy your contact info because once your number is transfered you will love everything on the phone. If you have any money left on the  old prepaid cell be sure to tell the customer service Rep so they can transfer that amount over to the new device.
