Keeping (Porting) Your Existing Mobile Phone Number

Can I keep my existing number(s) when I switch to Air Wireless?

Yes. This is called “porting your number.” Be sure if you are porting a number, it is a working non suspended number, and that you request the port with enough time to be completed prior to your next bill being due with your existing carrier. Failure to allow ample time could result in a loss of your number. Once you port your number over to Air Wireless, it becomes the property of Air Wireless. Release of the number back to you can be done at any time should you decide to go to another service provider. If you wish to port your number from Air Wireless to another carrier, it MUST be done by contacting If your number is suspended with Air Wireless for non-payment, it CAN NOT be ported out to another carrier.

What if I don’t know my Account Number or PIN number to transfer my number over to Air Wireless?

You MUST have your current carrier account number and PIN number before we can port your number over to Air Wireless. Both numbers must be 100% correct. If they are not correct, your existing number will not port over and you could run the risk of losing your number. Simply CALL YOUR CARRIER, identify yourself, and tell them you need your account number and PIN number to port your number to a new carrier.

Are there data caps on the First Class Unlimited Plan?

During congestion, customers using excessive data/mo. may notice reduced speeds until the next data cycle due to data prioritization; customers may notice speeds lower than other customers and further reduction if using >30GB/mo., due to data prioritization.
