No, the MEID is NOT the account #. You need to get the account # and passcode from your inlaws before initiating the ports. But you DO need the MEIDs/ESNs of whatever phones you're going to use on PPC, and triple check them to make sure you make no mistakes with the MEIDs/ESNs. Yes, port and activation can be processed in one step. If you're nervous, use a reputable dealer. One reputable dealer has a special for free ports going on right now.
Based on the posts below, for Tracfone, the MEID number IS the account number. Sorry for the misinformation!
