This is important information and we want you to have it. Yes, you will need a new SIM card. You will want to contact our Prepaid department as suggested previously to start the process: 888-294-6804.

You can definitely keep your number. I'm not sure about the SIM card question though. I would suggest that you call the prepaid customer service number at 1.888.294.6804 to get assistance with transferring your account from postpaid to prepaid. You should verify that you are out of contract and don't have any device payment agreements active before you switch your account type.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
