I'm Ben from the Cellphone Broker in San Jose, California. Today, I'm going to show you how to switch cell phone providers or cell phone carriers. Let's say you're on the Verizon network. You have five lines, and you want to keep all five of those phone numbers and switch over to AT&T. All you need to do is go to the AT&T store, purchase five phones and sign maybe five new contracts, and have them port over all of your numbers from Verizon to AT&T. And like I said, that's called porting over your numbers from Verizon to AT&T or from, you know, any providers or carriers. What you can then do is all they...all they're going to need is your account number from Verizon and the five phone numbers that you want to bring over. They need the account number and the five phone numbers that you want to bring over. Then you can then go to the AT&T store, get five new phones, and they'll port in your numbers from Verizon to AT&T. All you need to do when you get home is call Verizon and cancel all of the service because once the numbers are pulled out of Verizon to AT&T, they're going to give you temporary numbers and you're going to keep getting billed from Verizon until you cancel the service. So go in and cancel the service. And if you are still within your two-year contract, you're going to get charged the early termination fee, which can be up to 250 dollars. About average is 200 dollars. But if you're out of contract, then they're not going to charge you that. You'll just...you'll just be over with the service, you'll get your last bill, and you'll be on your new provider. So I'm Ben from the Cellphone Broker in San Jose, California. That's how you switch cell phone providers. You can log on our website -- myspace.com/cellphonebroker.
