    Change of phone number and balance question and expiry date

    AV says they will change our phone number on the sim by request. I assumed the balance would stay with the phone, but does it really? I forgot to ask the rep. They are closed today.

    I'm trying to sell a high dollar balance on Ebay and a selling point is the buyer can get a new phone number.

    Also, the ToS says if airtime expires you have 30 days to add a refill. Question is does the balance stay or does it go away on the expiration date?

    Thank you!

    I've always been told by ATT and the ATT MVNOs that porting in a new number requires a new/unactivated sim. That's what the Airvoice FAQ says as well: https://www.airvoicewireless.com/faq

    I'm not sure if they'll transfer the old balance to a new sim. They definitely don't if you're changing plan types.

    What plan do you currently have? If it's the $10 / 250 minute plan then you'll lose the entire balance if you don't refill by the expiration date.
