Account cancelled - Transfer landline to partner?

Been with NTL/VM since 2005. Just gone out of contract and my bills have shot right up.

Wanted to drop down to 100MB BB and just a phoneline to keep the number. However the price was still really expensive compared to other providers and new customers. As such, I gave my 30 day notice.

We will be moving house in hopefully 3 weeks time, which is in a VM area. If my partner signed up as a new customer (was previously in my name), would we be able to port the landline number across to her new account?

number porting can only be done between providers and only if the old number and line is active with no cancellation request on the account

Ah ok,

When I gave the 30 days notice, I was told that at the end of November the TV/BB would stop working, but the phoneline would still be kept open as I said I wanted to port this to a new provider.

as long as you do not cancel the phone line. But be sure that dropping the other service didn't change your package and start a new 18 month contract

Re: Account cancelled - Transfer landline to partner?

I’ve asked this before and I’ll ask it again.

Is it possible to port a number to a different name? Wouldn’t that be rather suspicious?

if the new account is a "returning customer" and not getting new customer deals its not suspicious
