    Smart phone to Alcatel My Flip 2

    The little woman has been asking (read demanding) a flip phone for quite some time so I got a deal on the Alcatel. It is the old 60 minute plan and her (3G) phone is not, plus the fact that she/I will be transferring from an AT&T to a Verizon. I thought I'd come here and find out what kind of questions I'll need answered from the folks who know how these things are done.
    I am assuming that it can be done and I'm looking for the simplest way to do it. I come here often seeking help and have yet to be disappointed, so thank you all in advance from an old-newbie.!

    The Alcatel may not seem like a smartphone, but the three smartphone buckets will transfer over just the same as usual. Obviously a carrier change as well.

    If you can do it via chat, you should ask the CSR to verify the balance on her current phone before starting the transfer. That way it proves what balance she has in case it doesn't show up after the transfer. I've had that happen before when activating a phone with a transfer and one phone was TracFone/AT&T, the other TracFone Verizon.

    Usually I try to stay in the chat until I see that the activation is complete and the service/airtime transfers.

    Transfers between different carriers may take longer, so you may not be able to see it complete during a chat session.

    I've managed to request they stay in the chat and they did until I got my balance, but other times they quit the chat.

    Transferred att to verizon went very well. CSR did not even question the 2044 end date of the phone. I wonder if Verizon will??
