    Port from Boost to Verizon

    Has anyone ported their number from Boost Mobile to Verizon (or another carrier)?

    I have read many conflicting reports about the ability to port a number from a prepaid type carrier to a post paid. My thought is that through a loophole at Nextel, I can port my current Nextel phones to Boost and avoid the ETF. Then port the number over to Verizon after it is on Boost.

    Any input would be appreciated!

    Pre-paid can be ported to post-paid (and vice versa) no problem.

    As long as you're sure this "loophole" exist, then the porting is no problem.
