Possible to port Comcast business number to new prepaid cell phone?
I am in a bit of a pickle.
I am 9 months into a 2-year contract with Comcast Business for one landline and 25 Mbps Internet service.
I just closed my retail storefront business and am moving my business home. I do not want to lose my phone number because I have a large clientele of older people who use the phone for placing orders.
Comcast has generously given me two options: cancel my account with an ETF of ~ $1450 and they provide 60 days of forwarding service for my number, after which time my number will be cancelled, OR move my business account home, forcing me to cancel my 100 Mbps Xfinity Internet to be replaced with their 50 Mbps business Internet service AND forcing me into another 2-year contract ($3500 over the next two years). Comcast Business and Xfinity are two separate companies so my home and business accounts cannot be merged.
I will take my medicine and pay the ETF but I NEED to keep my business phone number. I have researched Magic Jack and that just seems like a really bad deal (so many pissed off consumers makes me wary) and Google Voice says my number cannot be ported.
Is it possible to buy one of those pre-paid cell phones at Wal-Mart and successfully port my Comcrap business number to it?
Please advise. I need to get out of bed with Comcrap and keep my phone number. Thank you. ❤️
