    Cutting the cable etc cord and getting rid of land line?

    We are going to cut the cable cord and we would also like to get rid of our land line. I have a few questions regarding our Tracfones.
    1.I have the Moto G Stylus with quite a bit of minuets, data and text. I have until December before I need to get another phone with the 1500 for all 3 buckets. I am not sure if this has changed since Verizon bought Tracfone out.
    2.I also have the Moto G7 Optimo Maxx that has been unlocked with no minuets, data or text. I just use it on WiFi at home.
    3.I am thinking I will transfer all my minuets, data and text to the Moto G7 Optimo Maxx, after I unlock my Moto G Stylus then I will transfer all of the above to the G7.
    4.Then I would like to use my Moto G Stylus with another cell phone company with unlimited minuets, data and text.
    This way my husband would have the Moto G7 to use. When he is home without me and if I need to reach him. And I would use my Moto G Stylus for all the calls from family, doctors, banks etc.
    A couple of questions about doing this. 1. Can I transfer buckets from the G Stylus to the G7 and get a new Phone number for that one? 2. Will I be able to keep my current phone number on the G Stylus? I have never done this and not sure what is involved with it.
    Any recommendations to what would be a good budget carrier to go with for the G Stylus unlimited plan?
    I have been with Tracfone for so many years 16+ and I have all my phones too! But that is a whole other topic as to what to do with them.
    Thanks for any and all suggestions.

    Your statement #3 is confusing. After you transfer your minutes/data/text from the Stylus to the G7, what "all of the above" is left to transfer?

    A couple of questions about doing this. 1. Can I transfer buckets from the G Stylus to the G7 and get a new Phone number for that one?
    Which phone is "that one?"

    2. Will I be able to keep my current phone number on the G Stylus?.
    When you do a TRANSFER from an active phone to an inactive phone, the phone number, talk/text/data, service days of the active phone will be transferred to the inactive phone, then the active phone will be deactivated.

    We don’t like such short, simple questions here.

    Could you maybe expand and provide a little more info and detail…I’m thinking like what color hair does your mother-in-law have and who does your neighbor right across the street work for?

    Are you trying to be sarcastic here? I am not sure what you are trying to say and you aren't really offering any useful information to the OP or the response to the first post.
    Just another day in paradise.....

    Well yeah, I probably was a bit snarky. The "useful information" I was trying to get across to the OP is that the hallmarks of a good post are clarity, brevity and focus.

    The first-- and so far only responder-- apparently wasn't able to wade through the mud either...

    Thanks for your response. The OP's question was vague as mentioned.
